NEW ORLEANS — One day after New Orleans Saints star Quarterback Drew Brees announces his retirement from the NFL, the Saints are reportedly re-signing Quarterback Jameis Winston.

The news was first reported by the Athletic’s Shams Charania on Twitter:

Winston signed a one-year deal with the team a season ago, given the opportunity to improve his game by being a part of a successful quarterback system.

He will be able to sign a new contract with the Saints when free agency officially opens Wednesday afternoon.

He is expected to compete with Taysom Hill this offseason for the Saints starting Quarterback position.
