The New Orleans Saints offseason has been anything but boring so far as it pertains to the Saints’ hunt for a 2022 quarterback. By all accounts, Jameis Winston was the Saints preferred option when the 2022 offseason started, if not for only a lack of better options realistically available. Then the Deshaun Watson saga broke. After going all-in and missing out on Deshaun Watson, the New Orleans Saints were left scrambling to their Plan B - their original Plan A - a reunion with former first overall pick Jameis Winston.
Once news broke that Winston re-signed with the New Orleans Saints on a two-year deal, #SaintsTwitter was generally excited. Here are some of the best reactions:
It’s better this way giving up 3 1st rd picks and all that money— Tru Finesse (@Mr_Motivation86) March 22, 2022

personally I don’t think this Jameis Winston contract precludes Saints from going 18 at all. it’s a polished-up bridge QB deal. if the right prospect is there in the first round they should pounce. but if it were me I would focus all resources on setting JW up for success— John Sigler (@john_siglerr) March 21, 2022
Jameis Winston is the 2nd best QB in the NFC South and if it wasn’t for Tom going back he’d be the best— Brenden Ertle (@BrendenErtle) March 21, 2022
I’d rather have a blindfolded Jameis Winston at QB for the Saints than Baker Mayfield— Hayden Reel (@HaydenReeI) March 21, 2022

Happy for Jameis. Needs more perimeter weapons now.— Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) March 21, 2022
