One of the major storylines this NFL offseason is the retirement of quarterback Drew Brees and what it means for the New Orleans Saints. The team is now set to enter a new era and head into season with either Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill ready to take over as the team's leader on offense.

Winston was recently asked about his interactions with Brees and responded with an emotional and touching response. He stated the impact Brees has had on him and his family and how he will always be grateful for the 2020 season that he spent learning from the veteran quarterback.

One of the most exciting plays of the Saints playoff run last season was Winston coming in and throwing a 56-yard touchdown pass against his former team in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He explained how Brees had a role in giving him that opportunity and encouraged him along the way.

It's fair to say that Winston will be a better quarterback now that he spent a full season under Brees' wing. The knowledge and lessons that come from an experience like that is sure to make Winston motivated and ready to go out and prove himself next season.

As Winston said in the video, fans always seem to forget the human side of athletes. This was a great example of how teammates are there for one another and impact one another in a way that is much more than meets the eye.
