Saints QB Jameis Winston underwent off-season LASIK eye surgery and now has “no blurriness” and his “depth perception has increased.” (Greg Auman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Winston told reporters, “I can read license plates. I can read street signs. I think the precision in the vision is the biggest difference.” Winston seems serious about cleaning up his game as he joins the Saints on a one-year deal. Last season with the Buccaneers, he threw for a career-high 33 TDs, but that was coupled with another career-high, 30 INTs. Winston has had issues with his vision since his college days, and after his record-setting 2019, figured the time was right to hit the reset button on his future. Winston has shed weight, added muscle, corrected his vision, and seems excited to get the opportunity to learn from one of the best to ever play the position in Drew Brees. Look for Winston to become a starter again at some point in his career, whether for the Saints or another organization.
