Jameis Winston has broken his silence since being replaced as the quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by Tom Brady.

Appearing on Fox News to discuss a toll-free hotline he has teamed with Dr. Scott Kelley to help establish -- allowing people to call in with questions about the coronavirus -- Winston was very much glass-is-half-full when the question of Brady came around.

"One thing you can learn about me is my faith. I have tremendous faith in my lord, and one thing about Tom Brady is it's understood that he is the GOAT," Winston said. "For you to get replaced by Tom Brady in a city that you love so much, I guess that's kudos to me."

He added, "I'm going to have to play the Tom Bradys, the Patrick Mahomes and all the other great quarterbacks eventually. That's how you win Super Bowls, and that's what I want."

Winston remains a free agent.
