Jameis Winston gives rousing speech at youth football camp, says he’s ‘outworking everybody’



Jameis Winston is about that business.

The Saints quarterback is expected to be locked in a battle with Taysom Hill for the starting gig this year, and he knows as much if his speech given to youth football players over the weekend is any indication.

Winston, entering his second year with the Saints after re-signing with New Orleans on a one-year deal, said he is “outworking everybody” right now at his position — even with Cowboys’ passer Dak Prescott next to him.

“I went from being the No. 1 draft pick to being — everybody laughing at me,” Winston said. “But guess what? I’m about that business. I’m outworking everybody at my position.

“I know Dak (Prescott) is right here,” Winston said, stirring laughter, before continuing. “I’m doing things every single day, committing to the dream.”

Winston had 11 pass attempts with New Orleans last year, with the team opting to play Hill over the former No. 1 overall pick while Drew Brees was out with broken ribs.

Winston is facing his next, best and potentially last chance to be an NFL starter — and if words are any measure, he’s taking it as seriously as he should be.
