Taysom Hill admits to being surprised when he received word the New Orleans Saints claimed him off waivers from the Green Bay Packers after teams established initial 53-man rosters.

But the rookie quarterback's astonishment quickly turned to excitement when considering the signal caller he would have an opportunity to learn from.



"Obviously, I grew up watching Drew (Brees)," Hill said. "He's one of the best to ever play the position, so I was excited about the opportunity to come here and work with him."

Hill, an undrafted free agent out of BYU, gets to experience the best of both worlds after spending recent months with Aaron Rodgers and to now being two lockers down from Brees.


"I don't know if it gets any better," Hill said. "I had quite the experience in Green Bay and know they wanted to keep me, and this is just the way it worked out and I'm grateful to be here."

There is more to the 27-year-old Hill than just his admiration of the quarterbacks he has worked with in his budding professional career, of course.

He's already 27? Dayum. Half his career is over already. Lol. At least we don't have to worry about maturity issues.

He had almost as many interceptions as he did touchdowns. I hope that isn't an indication of his decision making. And I hope Brees and Payton can correct that.

He was probably on Mission for the church a few years before he went to college. He won't have the normal 27 year old wear .

College ball to NFL is a huge adjustment for any player. And BYU to Bourbon Street is quite a culture change. Hope he's ready for it all.

As long as he can learn and grow listening to Sean and watching Drew then the more the merrier I say!
