The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are among the teams that don’t know who will be their starting quarterback in Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season. Jameis Winson is without a contract and headed for free agency next month.

Winston has spent the first five years of his career with the Buccaneers, who made the signal caller the No.1 overall pick in 2015. Head coach Bruce Arians is unsure if Winston will return for a sixth season in Tampa Bay.

“Really nothing has changed,” Arians said Thursday, via The Tampa Bay Times. “What’s Door No. 2? You know? Can we make the one we have better? All those things you go through right now.”

Winston ranked first in the 2019 season with 5,109 passing yards. He was second with 33 touchdowns. The 26-year-old also led the league with 30 interceptions and was tied for fifth with five fumbles lost. 

The Buccaneers went 7-9 for their third straight losing season. Tampa Bay has never made the playoffs with Winston under center.

Tampa Bay was fourth in points scored last season. A poor defense ultimately kept the Bucs out of the postseason. Winston’s seven pix-sixes played a role in Tampa Bay finishing 29th in points allowed.

 "You’re just sitting there waiting to see is there someone available?” Arians said. “Is he a better option?

“And then, that’s the problem, you get about three days to decide. The legal tampering period. Is somebody going to get let go? What’s the trade values? It’s really monotonous right now because you don’t have any answers.”

NFL teams can start speaking with free agents on March 16. Deals can officially be signed on March 18. 

The Bucs can use the franchise tag on Winston if they don’t want to commit multiple years to the quarterback.

Tom Brady, Philip Rivers and Teddy Bridgewater are a few of the quarterbacks that are expected to test free agency.
