New Orleans Saints sign quarterback Jameis Winston on one-year contract

New Orleans Saints have agreed terms to sign quarterback Jameis Winston.

The free agent, who had knee surgery in February, joins the reigning NFC South champions on a one-year deal.

Winston left the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following the arrival of six-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady.

He leaves left the Bucs five years after being selected first in the 2015 NFL Draft.

The 26-year-old is expected to contest the back-up spot, to veteran QB Drew Brees, with Taysom Hill who was re-signed by the Saints last weekend.

Teddy Bridgewater, who filled in for an injured Brees last year, has already moved on to become first choice at Carolina Panthers.
