The Cleveland Browns have signed free agent quarterback Jameis Winston

Jameis Winston has signed a one-year contract with the Cleveland Browns. One of the best backup quarterbacks in the NFL, Winston is set to hold the clipboard for Deshaun Watson in 2024. While Watson signed a massive contract with Cleveland only two years ago, the pairing hasn’t lived up to expectations so far. He has struggled with injuries and accuracy, leading to speculation about his future.

 

However, make no mistake about it this is still going to be Watson’s team for the foreseeable future. This means that Winston won’t get the chance to compete for a starting opportunity like some places he could have signed. Given Watson’s struggles with injuries last season though it’s no surprise the Browns want insurance at the quarterback position. As a result, Winston should be rostered in all deeper Superflex formats as a player that could be plugged in as a QB2 if Watson were to ever miss time.
