2. Winston Has Experience And Is A Proven Starter
Secondly, the Patriots need a quarterback with NFL experience. They still have a roster capable of competing for a Super Bowl. If they choose to go with Stidham or draft another quarterback, that window may not be open long enough for the youngster to develop.
Winston has proven that he is a starting caliber quarterback in the NFL. He has a lot of work to do, but his experience would help keep New England competitive.
Depending on his price tag, and it seems like he will cost a decent amount, the Patriots should show major interest. Winston could be their franchise quarterback now, as well as for the foreseeable future.
