7 young quarterbacks who can threaten the NFL’s passing records one day

7 young quarterbacks who can threaten the NFL’s passing records one day The next generation is poised to leave its mark on the record books.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will stick with starting quarterback Jameis Winston into the 2019 season, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Buccaneers are sticking with a player who has a troubling history with allegations of sexual assault going back to his days in college.

Jameis Winston is showing more and more signs of being a potentially elite quarterback. The Bucs' passing game is humming, with Jameis Winston 's 7.7 yards per attempt ranked ninth in the NFL. All in all, it looks like the Bucs are doing a very good job of protecting Winston -- but Pro Football Focus

Whether or not new head coach Bruce Arians likes it, he’s likely stuck with Jameis Winston at quarterback this season.

During Friday’s preseason game against the Cleveland Browns, backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert went down with a dislocated non-throwing shoulder, which Arians later confirmed.

Early in the third quarter, Gabbert scrambled up the middle for a first down and landed awkwardly on his left arm after sliding head-first. The 29-year-old was immediately in pain, called the training staff onto the field and left the game.

Top takeaways from Friday’s NFL preseason action

Top takeaways from Friday’s NFL preseason action There were only three games on the slate Friday night as the NFL preseason rumbled along, but they provided fans with plenty to chew on. In particular, the play of the quarterbacks stood out, both for good and bad reasons. Starting with a second-year quarterback who is starting to come on strongly, these are the top takeaways from Friday night’s preseason NFL action.

Jameis Winston is used to putting a lot of pressure on himself to perform. The Buccaneers want their quarterback to relax a little. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers understand they will only go as far as quarterback Jameis Winston can take them. That doesn’t mean he needs to put all the pressure on

“His shoulder popped out,” Arians said after the game, via ESPN. “He was hurting pretty good, but [I told him], ‘Good thing it's not your throwing shoulder. You’ll be all right.’”

Dislocated shoulders often take months to recover from, but the Buccaneers have not offered a loose timeline for Gabbert’s recovery yet, or whether he’ll need surgery.

29-year-old Ryan Griffin, who has yet to appear in a game since joining the Bucs in 2015, was the only other quarterback on roster at the time of the injury. Saturday morning, the team announced that they had signed rookie QB Vincent Testaverde, the son of the Bucs’ all-time leading passer.

“It was tough [watching] but Blaine's a soldier,” Winston said, “and it was a great opportunity for Griff to step in and do a great job. He’s been doing a great job this entire preseason.”

Jameis Winston is the king of pump-up speeches, but this might be his most interesting one yet. In an attempt to hype up his teammates before their game against The Buccaneers are now 2-6 on the season after losing to the Saints on Sunday, so they might be more hungry than other teams for a W.

It was not a promising start for Jameis Winston , the NFL’s first pick out of the 2015 NFL draft. Opening with a pick-six on his first NFL pass and a blowout 42–14 loss at home by second pick Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans, Winston and the Buccaneers had a forgettable first month of the season.

The Bucs’ success rides on Jameis this season

With Winston’s former backup/co-starter Ryan Fitzpatrick moving south to the Miami Dolphins — where he’s taking the preseason very seriously — there was never truly going to be competition for the Bucs’ quarterback job.

The Buccaneers picked up Winston’s fifth-year option last April, and he gave them a shaky 2018 season with 2,992 yards in 11 games with 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Now they’ll need to decide if the former No. 1 pick is worth a long-term commitment.

Arians has been a quarterback whisperer of sorts in the past. He revitalized Carson Palmer's career at 34 with the Arizona Cardinals, and Winston is every bit as talented as his fellow former Heisman winner.

The Buccaneers will win or lose with Winston, but it would have been more comforting to have a quality backup in town just in case. Gabbert will never live up to his 10th overall draft pick status, but he also didn't burn the house down in three starts for the Tennessee Titans last season when he had to sub for Marcus Mariota.
