I didn't listen because I can't stand Stephen A. Winston took the contract for the future. He knows what learning from Payton and Brees could do for his future. Learn for a year and then the money will come. It could possibly come from New Orleans. If the eye surgery has improved his vision and helps his decision making, he could be a perfect replacement for Brees in 2021. To take a step back and sign a contract like he signed, it shows that he could be maturing. If he works hard, he could have a bright future. As far as Newton, he has been injured and no one could bring him in for an evaluation. He doesn't know if Newton turned down other better offers just to sign with the Pats. This is an unique year. If they both stay focused and work hard, they will be making 20+ million in 2021.Stephen A is nothing but a blowhard.
Nobody forced Newton and Winston to sign those contracts.
IDK if he actually had larger offers but he did say that he took what we could afford to pay him just to have the experience of learning from Brees and Payton for a year. And if he really does learn and improve from their tutelage, he could end up getting his next big contract here.I understand Cam getting what he did. He's a known quantity and he very much seems to be on the downside of his career. There's not a lot of value with him. Maybe you get a year or two of decent production, but he's probably going to get injured. And you can't run the same offense with Jarrett Stidham or Brian Hoyer than you had for Newton, so you've got all sorts of scheme issues.
I don't understand the Winston thing. Unless he turned down much better offers to come to the Sean Payton Rehab Facility (for quarterbacking, not Vicodin), I think his market value is much higher than what he got. Maybe he did get better offers. Who knows. But I do know that there are a lot worse QBs who get paid a lot more than what Winston does.
But Winston has a ton of upside and there's usually a premium on that. Consider that Baker Mayfield actually throws interceptions at a higher rate than Winston does (whether you compare first two years or career vs. career). Now consider that Baker is more of a chemistry disruption than Winston has ever been.
Now put Winston and Mayfield into free agency and tell me how they end up? I'm not jumping to racism, maybe there's some things we don't know, and maybe I'm just overvaluing Winston. But it seems off to me.
