Jameis Lanaed Winston is an American football quarterback who is the Qaurterback for the New Orleans Saints.
He played college football at Florida State, where he became the youngest player to win the Heisman Trophy and led his team to victory in the 2014 BCS National Championship Game during his freshman year.
Declaring for the NFL after his sophomore season, Winston was selected first overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Winston set several franchise rookie records for the Buccaneers, earning him Pro Bowl honors, and led the league in passing yards during the 2019 season.
However, he was unable to reach the playoffs with the Buccaneers and his 2019 campaign was also marked by him leading the league in interceptions, including setting the NFL season record for interceptions returned for touchdowns.
Not re-signed to Tampa Bay after his rookie contract expired, Winston joined the Saints as a backup to Drew Brees.
He became the team's primary starter in 2021 following Brees' retirement.
