I get that. But if you're a player, would you take a 4 year 80 million dollar deal with 25-30 million guaranteed, or a one year deal with incentives to reach 20 million? And...................run the risk of getting hurt.
I get what you are saying, and Winston might be willing to take a 4 year deal, but it’s hard to imagine he would sign for 4 unless there is a lot of guaranteed cash in the deal.

We kind of have to get him on a 4 year deal to fit him under to cap and keep our players. We don't have $20 million in incentives to give.

I do not get the Minshew love, other than loving his swagger. I am a WSU alum and love the guy, but he is not going to be a playoff caliber QB. He has moxy , but does not have the arm, release, or processing speed at the NFL level.
Look at his numbers. They look really good, and they're coming from a bad team. Give him a good coach and legit team he could be really impressive.

If Taysom did not drop the ball as much, he could have a shot at being a real factor but he has to be clean with the ball. No matter who is QB (unless Brees plays), the offense will change. Coach will adjust to the type of talents the qb has. Winston had basically no coaching after winning the Heisman. The Saints have had a chance to see him for a year behind the scenes. If they do sign him, he will not be a stop gap. He is 27 and talented. If Jamies does stay, draft WR available in 1st, maybe Marshal, Jr. If Jamies leaves, sign QB from Bama. This is a strange off season due to Covid-19 and adjustments to salary cap which makes it more difficult to make predictions on free agency.

His numbers are not that good. I love the guy but he has a Case Keenum trajectory. Nothing wrong with that, but hard to imagine a contending team giving him the keys.

What direction does the team go ? Hill ? A drafted QB ? Another veteran or trade ?
I don't think Payton is going to let Winston get away but you never know. Didn't see enough from Hill this past season to think he's THE guy. Just my 2¢ ...
It's not up to CSP. It's our salary cap. 5 players take up almost 50 percent of cap. Not counting a future Winston deal.

My opinion on what happens if Jamies Winston signs elsewhere is this,

As an "Arm" talented quarterback he can make any throw needed to be successful quarterback in the NFL.
Winston has more arm talent than any quarterback on the list with the exception of possibly Deshaun Watson.
He "must" be with a lot of support and development personnel around him. Coach Payton is the only, reputable, proven, quarterback friendly,
development specialist, who can provide Jamies Winston what Jamies needs.

I saw an interview with Jamies a couple of weeks ago where he was asking the interviewer (I forget who) questions as to what he thought Jamies
should do to improve and be great. Jamies knows his short comings. Jamies seemed to me to be projecting a lot of lack of confidence, unsure of what he himself knew.
When Jamies was asked questions he was slow in his answer, his eyes would widen when expressing his answers. Jamies has been shot at and hit, (if you know the old adage)
too much in his career. The man has all the talent in the world, but if he is not in the right system with the right coach, he will fail. But not for the lack of talent.
Jamies threw for over 5,000 yards 2 years ago. His play caller set him up for failure and 30 interceptions. Jamies never threw that many errors before.

Jamies Winston is childlike with a stud man amount of talent. For those reasons as I mention here, the best place, the best coach for Jamies' career is Coach Sean Payton.
I think Jamies knows it and will ultimately choose to stay with the SAINTS.

Why ? Because that interview he was in show that he wants to be great.
Jamies doesn't know how to be great.
If he chooses to go elsewhere he will quickly regret it.
Look at Teddy Bridgewater.
Teddy might very well be back here with the SAINTS if he is released by the Panthers as it is looking very likely to be.
