We entered the 2020 NFL offseason with an unusually large number of high-profile quarterbacks becoming free agents. Some, like Ryan Tannehill, stayed put, but plenty have found new homes for 2020.

The odd man out seems to have been Jameis Winston, who was replaced in Tampa Bay by Tom Brady. However, Winston still hasn't found a new home, and the available options are dwindling.

With that in mind, here are the remaining three favorites to sign Winston, according to the odds from FanDuel Sportsbook.

Updated Jameis Winston Free Agency Odds

3. Miami Dolphins (+350)

The Miami Dolphins are still firmly in the running to draft Tua Tagovailoa, but it's starting to look like that may require trading up. Signing Winston could make sense whether they land Tua or not, however. Winston is still just 26 years old, and he has the potential to be a long-time starter for the Dolphins if they don't draft a QB. Seeing as he's been on the market for so long, he's not likely to be very expensive, either. That means they can afford to bring him in to compete with a rookie QB as well, giving them two options with long-term, franchise QB-type upside.

2. New Orleans Saints (+325)

This one may come as a surprise, as Winston has been one of the Saints' division rivals for years. Despite all the off-season buzz, Taysom Hill is not likely the team's long-term answer to the QB position once Drew Brees retires, and if Winston is willing to sit as a backup for a year or two, he could take over the reins and keep the Saints' offense on the right track with a relatively seamless transition in the post-Brees era.

1. Jacksonville Jaguars (+200)

The Jacksonville Jaguars shipped off Nick Foles to the Chicago Bears, but that doesn't necessarily mean they're sold on Gardner Minshew as their franchise QB. Minshew had a promising rookie season, but that strong 12-game sample doesn't mean they are ready to lock him in as a long-term starter. Winston could stay in Florida and likely have the inside track on the Jags' starting QB role if that is where he ends up signing.
