Bruce Arians says Bucs still undecided on Jameis Winston

Bruce Arians remains undecided about whether to keep Jameis Winston or move on from the Bucs starting quarterback, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

In fact, Arians said Thursday the Bucs probably won’t know the direction they will go at that position until the start of the three-day legal free agent tampering period March 16-18.

"Really nothing has changed,'' Arians said. "What’s Door No. 2? You know? Can we make the one we have better? All those things you go through right now.''

The deadline for NFL teams to designate a franchise or transition player is at 4 p.m. March 10, nearly a week prior to the tampering period.

Arians, who spoke Thursday at an NFL coaches academy in Tampa, said the Bucs have been just going through different scenarios based on which quarterbacks may become free agents or made available for trade.

But right now, Arians said, it’s hard to make a decision not knowing which quarterbacks actually make it to free agency.

The Saints’ Drew Brees and the Patriots’ Tom Brady are scheduled to become free agents when the signing period begins March 18. The Chargers have already announced they will not resign Philip Rivers.

Said Arians, "You’re just sitting there waiting to see is there someone available? ... 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.''
