Saints Genuinely Believe In Taysom Hill

The Athletic's Jay Glazer says that New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill is the guy that the Saints believe can be the future starter when Drew Brees retires. Head coach Sean Payton loves Hill, but so does the entire team. The 29-year-old gadget player can do a lot on the football field, but there's plenty of reason for skepticism that he can be an effective NFL starter under center, most notably the fact that he's attempted just 13 passes since 2017. When Brees went down with an injury in 2019 and missed time, it was Teddy Bridgewater, not Hill that took over under center. Fantasy owners will surely want to see Hill succeed at the position before they invest in him in future seasons, but Hill surely can at least make things happen with his legs outside the pocket.

Saints Sign Taysom Hill To Two-Year Deal

The New Orleans Saints re-signed Taysom Hill to a two-year contract extension worth $21 million, including $16 million guaranteed at the time of signing. The news comes right after the Jameis Winston signing, so it's been a busy day in the New Orleans quarterback room. The two will presumably battle it out for the backup job behind Drew Brees. The money may seem like a lot for a backup quarterback- Hill is much more than that to the Saints. He lined up under center, at running back, out wide, and as a tight end in the New Orleans offense last year.

Saints To Use First-Round Tender On Taysom Hill

The New Orleans Saints are planning to place a first-round tender on impending restricted free-agent quarterback Taysom Hill, according to a source. The Saints will have a chance to match an offer sheet that he could receive from another team. If he departs, they'd receive a first-round pick. It's looking increasingly likely that Hill will stay on board as the Saints QB of the future after Drew Brees retires, with Teddy Bridgewater likely hitting the open market and going elsewhere. Hill has mainly been used as a gadget player and receiver with New Orleans, though, so it remains to be seen if he'd be effective as the starting signal-caller. He's a dynasty league stash but won't have much redraft value unless Brees gets hurt.
