First, he made a successful return from his season-ending injury.
Second, he re-signed with the Saints on a two-year deal, hoping to bring them to the playoffs in 2022.
He was on the right path to the postseason last year until he suffered a torn ACL and MCL damage.
But his third triumph goes beyond football.

Winston earned his degree from Florida State University.
He took online classes since leaving school in 2015 and completed a major in social sciences and a minor in business.
He played two seasons for the Seminoles, finishing with 7,964 yards, 65 touchdowns, and a 66 percent completion percentage.
Winston was taken by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the first overall pick in the 2015 draft and stayed with the team for four years.
The Alabama native was initially Drew Brees’ backup after joining the Saints in 2020.
When Brees’ retirement was imminent during that season’s Divisional Round game, Winston received the words “This is your team now” from the surefire Hall of Famer.
Exciting Times Ahead For The Saints
A year after missing the playoffs, it looks like the Saints are back in contention.
They’ve built a solid defensive unit with Cameron Jordan, Demario Davis, Marshon Lattimore, Marcus Maye, and Tyrann Mathieu.
But their offense isn’t lagging after drafting Ohio State wide receiver Chris Olave with the 11th overall pick in the 2022 draft.
Pair him with Michael Thomas and the Saints have an explosive wideout duo.
Alvin Kamara is still there to generate yards and touchdowns from anywhere.
Barring any injuries, the Saints should be postseason favorites.
However, it remains to be seen if they will continue their regular season dominance over division rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Saints have won all four matches against Tampa Bay since Tom Brady joined the squad.
