Things could be a lot worse for the NOLA Saints at the quarterback position. Yes, their soon-to-be Hall of Fame quarterback retired over the offseason but Jameis Winston, his likely successor, is a former No. 1 overall pick who has no issues with airing out the football.
The Saints might not be the same team that they were with Drew Brees at the helm but they still have a very good roster and Winston gives them a chance to remain a competitive team.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports listed Winston as the NFC South’s most likely breakout candidate. La Canfora had this to say:

Having Taysom Hill as a change of pace will also help Winston and keep him in situations that play most to his strengths.
