1. An extremely high upside
Let’s not forgot that Winston has a ton of talent.
His arm strength is off-the-charts. He throws accurate passes. He’s strong and can make plays with his legs when counted upon to do so.
Yes, Winston is five years into his professional career. That being said, there’s still room for improvement.
He’s not going to become the next Tom Brady, but he certainly has an extremely high ceiling that can be reached with hard-work and more progress.
Winston isn’t done developing as a quarterback and it may be in Tampa Bay’s best interest to use the franchise tag on him and the ‘wait-and-see’ approach for one more season.
The QB class in 2021 will be much deeper and that could give the Buccaneers more options if they decided to part ways with Winston after this coming season.
