I never really questioned his character before, but this kind of puts him in a new light for me. I wonder if this is a sign of things to come.

It almost feels like he's trying to buy his way into NO for a shot at that starting spot in the next season or two.

Oh wow that's great. I hope he takes advantage of his chance to learn because he definitely has the arm talent he just needs to learn how not to be such a gun slinger, and take care of the ball.

CHEAP doesn't begin to describe it. Now we know the Saints will get fined and kicked out of the NFL for grand larceny.
Edit: that says a lot about Winston's character. I am beginning to believe he is sincere in his desire to turn his career around. :9:

wow. what was his salary at Tampa?

According to Sportrac, he earned $23M in base, $16.6M in signing bonuses and $6.3M in roster bonuses. All this over 5 years.


If the Steelers offered him a more lucrative contract my guess is it had to be at least 7-8M a year. Winston is taking a heck of discount to learn from the best.
