Players such as Deshaun Watson, Jimmy Garoppolo, Mitchell Trubisky, Carson Wentz, and Jameis Winston are all possibly heading to a new team over the offseason and according to Jordan Schultz, the Washington Commanders are now interested in Winston to potentially lead their team.
In a perfect world, Ron Rivera’s #Commanders would love to find a FA QB at a discount — and Jameis Winston could potentially fit the bill coming off knee surgery.

Winston is coming off a torn ACL so the move comes with a risk but it might be one worth taking for Washington. Current quarterback Taylor Heinicke has done well but the Commanders will have to decide at some point whether or not he’s the future. For Winston, chances are a team isn’t going to give him a long-term deal as he’s coming off a serious injury. So if he can get solid playing time and stay healthy with a team for a year or two, he can get things back on track. That could be with the Commanders.
