Steelers Are Best Fit For Jameis Winston, Says Peter King
The Pittsburgh Steelers are the best fit for Jameis Winston, says NFL insider Peter King.
Last week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Tom Brady to a two-year deal. The move effectively ended Winston’s time with the franchise, freeing him up for a new team.
So what will that new team be?
According to King, the Steelers could make a lot of sense.
“I think the best place personally for Jameis Winston, as I’ve written in this space, is Pittsburgh,” he said.
“But I believe the Steelers won’t have interest in Winston as a 2020 sidecar for Ben Roethlisberger and perhaps his successor. I do think the Steelers had better spend some serious think time on the number two quarterback.
“With no one certain whether Roethlisberger will start 16 games or six, the Steelers don’t want to get caught short-handed this year, as they were last year.”
The market for Winston currently appears to be slim, but that will likely change as we get closer to the new season and teams begin to realize they have quarterback needs.
