NFL Free Agent Would You Rather Edition 2- Jameis Winston or Ryan Tannehill

Once again it’s would you rather time! This one is going to be a comparison at quarterback for this upcoming offseason. Ryan Tannehill and Jameis Winston will both be compensated nicely this offseason but who would I rather have?

Let’s get into it.

Jameis Winston- Now here’s a man who managed to lead…yes lead the entire field of NFL quarterbacks in passing yards in the 2019 season. Throwing for 5,109 yards and 33 touchdowns. Pretty damn good right?

Until you come to find out he had 30…yes 30 interceptions. With more than a handful going the other way for a Tuddy for the other team. He led his team to an 8-8 record, so in all reality, if he cuts his turnovers in half he’s a playoff quarterback.

But the real question is can he do that? As of now, he has yet to. It’s almost like the more he progresses the more of a window for failure opens up. Jameis is only 26 so there is room for tremendous improvement. Especially with the right coach.

Ryan Tannehill– On the other side of things you’ve got the man who came into Tennessee and led a surge to the playoffs. Obviously, a huge part of that goes to Derrick Henry but the quarterback play from Tannehill was very good.

Tannehill was very efficient as he completed 70 percent of his passes with 2,742 yards, 22 touchdowns, and only 6 picks to go along with it.

Tannehill will be expecting a Nick Foles like payday after leading a Cinderella story to the AFC championship. Tannehill will want to and proved he should be a starter in this league again.

For me personally, when looking at the two and deciding for my franchise, Jameis Winston is the move I would make. Winston is 5 years younger and the way he can chuck the ball downfield is exciting. Tannehill can be a great system QB as he showed this season as he was playing in the AFC championship while Winston was at home. But with Winston getting LASIK eye surgery hopefully he can cut the turnovers in half and continue to improve on his improvement. 

Final Verdict: Jameis Winston
