Recently an article was released that ranked the ‘Top 50 Employed Quarterbacks’ and the list is pretty impressive, once you sift through all the terrible ones. Our Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB, Jameis Winston, ranked pretty high on that list breaking the top 10 at number 9.
No surprise there as he has been more than productive in his first two seasons, throwing for more than 8,100 yards and 50 touchdowns. Winston has thrown 33 interceptions during his first two seasons, and if he can slow that number down there should be no reason he is not a top 5 QB next season.
Cracking the top 5 will be no easy task, as you still have the Carr, Big Ben, Brady, Matt Ryan, and Drew Brees hanging around and playing at ridiculously consistent high levels, but I have faith in Jameis. Winston’s stats should skyrocket next season, as he is gaining more experience, and with the addition of DeSean Jackson.
If by some fluke chance that the Buccaneers add Adrian Peterson to the mix or Doug Martin bounces back 100%, then the passing game should open up exponentially for our helmsman. Jameis is already chunking up the yards and making history in his first two seasons, as he sits just 65 yards behind Andrew Luck for all time passing yards in a player’s first two seasons.
