Mitchell Trubisky landing spot no. 4: New Orleans Saints
The New Orleans Saints quarterback situation remains very much in the air as we head into the month of March.
Jameis Winston has started running, but Jameis doesn’t currently have a team to run with.
He’s a free agent, and free agent quarterbacks with solidified situations aren’t usually sharing rehab videos with Adam Schefter.
Would the Saints like to have Winston back in 2022? Maybe, but there’s also plenty of risk involved there given Winston is coming off of a major knee injury.
There’s no more Sean Payton in New Orleans. There’s obviously no more Drew Brees, either.
The Saints need a solution at the quarterback position, but what can they realistically afford?
Mitchell Trubisky is coming off of a year in which he was the backup to Josh Allen in Buffalo, and he’ll obviously be seeking out starting opportunities. He might not be able to get $15 million per season but he might be able to get a one-year deal with some incentives from a team like the Saints.
Although the Saints have very little in the way of cap space, perhaps Trubisky could come in on a team-friendly, short-term deal, and rehab his financial value by spreading the ball around to guys like Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara.
