Congratulations are in order for Jameis Winston.

On Saturday, the New Orleans Saints quarterback officially graduated from Florida State, seven years after he left school for the National Football League.

Winston was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

This weekend, Winston officially became a college graduate.

Well done, Jameis! "In 2015, Jameis Winston left Florida State for the NFL. Since then, the QB has been taking online classes to finish his required coursework. Today, 7 years later, he returned to FSU to receive his college diploma," Front Office Sports tweeted.

The Saints congratulated their quarterback, too.

It was a pretty special moment.

Congrats again, Jameis!
