The Athletic Pittsburgh Senior Writer, Ed Bouchette went on the Rich Eisen Show 5 days ago stating that veteran quarterback Jameis Winston could wind up in Steelers black & gold.
Although I think he would be a wise choice for the time being, I still believe that Pittsburgh will address the quarterback position early on in the 2022 NFL Draft. So look forward to either Liberty’s Malik Willis or Pittsburgh’s Kenny Picket to sport the black & gold as well. 🤞
On Thursday former Pittsburgh quarterback Bruce Gradkowski told 93.7 The Fan’s Radio Host, Andrew Fillipponi that Winston could help the Steelers win a Super Bowl during this post-Roethlisberger stage.
Would I take it as far as Jameis taking the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Super Bowl in one to two years? Not really sold on that right now, but I do believe that he can mentor a player like Willis or Pickett to become the next to do so. Because we all know that Mason Rudolph is not the answer.
Before a torn ACL sidelined him in week 8 last season against his former team the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Winston threw for 1,170 yards, 14 touchdowns with only 3 interceptions, completing 59% of his passes giving the Saints a 5-2 record.
Not outstanding numbers, but numbers nonetheless. Numbers that I believe can be improved in this stage of his career with the right organization and system. And what better organization and/or system could be better than the Steelers?
Keep in mind that Pittsburgh still have interest in Jimmy Garoppolo, Aaron Rodgers and more recently Carson Wentz, but for some reason Jameis Winston does make a bit of sense. But only time will tell. We shall see come free agency time. #HereWeGo
