Terry Bradshaw continues to steal headlines across the NFL this week. It started with some on-air struggles during FOX NFL Sunday and continued after a strange message he had for New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston.
According to NFL reporter Dov Kleiman, Bradshaw said to Winston, “Be careful, you might lose your job to Andy Dalton.”
Dalton is currently a backup quarterback for the Saints and a 12-year NFL veteran. He’s a three-time Pro Bowl selection and has had previous stops with the Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears.
Winston struggled in New Orleans’ 22-14 loss to Carolina in Week 3. He finished completing 25-of-41 passes for 353 yards but had two interceptions with just one touchdown.
For the season, Winston has a 63.5% completion rate with five interceptions and four touchdown passes. He’s also been sacked 11 times. New Orleans sits at 1-2 on the year.
Dalton started in six games for the Chicago Bears during the 2021 campaign. He hasn’t started a full season since 2017, when he was still with the Bengals.
While Bradshaw’s message may not be all that far off, it’s still strange to mention to the quarterback.
