NEW ORLEANS, LA: What was assumed is all but official. Jameis Winston will be the Saints’ starting quarterback to open the season when New Orleans hosts the Green Bay Packers, ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported Friday via sources. The 2015 No. 1 overall draft pick by Tampa Bay spent five seasons with the Bucs before signing in 2020 with New Orleans and serving as one of Drew Brees’ backups with Taysom Hill.
The 27-year old Winston beat out Hill for the opener starting role this preseason.
