Man I really like Hill but that be a little hisgh for the Saints to match. I really thought he would explode last year but then Watson stole the thunder.

I thought Hill was the reason why we were confident in trading away JG - he was supposed to step right in and perform w virtually no drop off. My, how things change in a year.

I don't remember anyone saying that.
I remember most saying the offense would continue to shine because of how Drew spreads the ball around.

I'm not sure where you got that idea. A few people around here that far over-valued Hill may have mentioned something of the sort, but most of us felt Ben Watson would step into the primary TE role. Then again, I don't remember any of us promoting Watson ever saying that there would not be a drop off at the position. Personally, I was never overly impressed with Hill.

We can now sign a 3rd string TE for a million of less
Good Luck to him

future bears' headline-
New TE Hill is having a hard time adjusting. Notes that passes are easier to catch when they are thrown on the numbers...
Yes i would have 500k is below market price as it is. the saints never play this game well.

He reminds me of Arrington. Tons of potential and everyone keeps waiting for the light to go on but it doesn't. Ben Watson took his job...think about that. he couldn't put it together and looked much worse once Graham left. Hopefully he does will in Chicago. We have a solid blocking TE and a decent recieving TE so it's not a need.

And yet he hardly used Hill at all once the season started. Was he simply trying to inflate his perceived value?
