Jameis Winston landing spot no. 4: Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts apparently really don’t want to move forward with Carson Wentz.

The Colts will likely cut or trade Wentz in the near future, which would open them up to this rather dry quarterback market.

Maybe the Colts already have a Plan A in mind and it doesn’t include Jameis Winston, or maybe a player like Jameis Winston is exactly what Frank Reich is looking for.

That might seem hard to believe, but Winston’s improved decision-making last season might have piqued the curiosity of coaches and executives that wouldn’t otherwise have been intrigued.

The Colts took a shot on Carson Wentz for a first-round pick and then some after he led the NFL in interceptions.

Jameis Winston has not exactly been a model of ball security in his football career but last season in New Orleans, he was doing a lot better in that area than we have become accustomed to.

Are the Colts looking for a contrasting playing style to Carson Wentz? Are they looking for different leadership traits?

Winston seems like the type of guy who has had a lot of hard growth through the years due to immaturity, which we saw plenty of dating back to his time at Florida State.

How much has he matured since his Buccaneers days? How is he leading an entire team?

That is the kind of thing that might matter to the Colts more than anything.
