Could the quarterback Tom Brady changed in Tampa Bay wind up changing him in New England?
Never count on it.
NFL Media’s Mike Giardi, relaying a conversation with a “high-position Patriots formal,” described Friday that Jameis Winston is “unlikely” to sign up for the Patriots “at this juncture.”
Requested high rating #Patriots official if they had interest in Jameis Winston. Would seem unlikely at this juncture. @nflnetwork

Winston, the Buccaneers’ setting up QB for the past five seasons, is regarded for his exceedingly very poor ball stability. He threw an NFL-high 30 interceptions in 2019 — including a document 7 choose-sixes — and has fumbled 50 periods in his vocation, getting rid of 19. Winston did set up gaudy passing stats in Bruce Arians’ offense (33 touchdowns, league-best 5,190 yards past period) but his penchant for turnovers would make him a very poor healthy for a Invoice Belichick-coached group.
With Brady formally signing with the Bucs on Friday, the Patriots’ quarterback depth chart now consists of 2019 fourth-round draft choose Jarrett Stidham and 26-yr-outdated journeyman Cody Kessler. They’ll undoubtedly incorporate at least just one supplemental sign-caller this offseason.
Winston is the only at present available totally free agent who was a total-time starter in 2019. Other names in that team include Blake Bortles, Matt Moore, Colt McCoy, Joe Flacco and Trevor Siemian. Cam Newton and Andy Dalton are likely trade targets who ultimately could be produced by their existing teams. Ex-Patriot Jacoby Brissett also really should be available via trade with Philip Rivers now in Indianapolis.
