Saints' Taysom Hill: Could be backup quarterback in 2018
by RotoWire Staff Jan 18, 2018 1 min read UPDATE Jan 18, 2018, 9:06pm

Hill did not register in the box score in Sunday's 29-24 NFC divisional-round defeat to the Vikings, but he played 19 special-teams snaps and narrowly missed blocking a punt in the second half.

A standout dual-threat quarterback at BYU, Hill went undrafted in last April before signing as a free agent with the Packers. Despite an impressive preseason, Green Bay waived Hill, who was claimed off waivers by the Saints in September.

The rookie quarterback spent most of the season on the practice squad before causing considerable buzz in his NFL debut in a Week 13 win over the Panthers -- a game in which he recorded two tackles and came close to blocking a pair of Carolina punts as part of the Saints' special-teams unit. While Hill continued to play on special teams (he finished the regular seas

on with four tackles in five games), it's been reported that head coach Sean Payton believes that Hill could be the eventual successor to quarterback Drew Brees, who is a free agent this offseason.

Hill's ascension to starting quarterback is unlikely to occur in 2018 -- considering Brees is expected to re-sign with the Saints this offseason -- but the team could let unrestricted free agent Chase Daniel walk this offseason, which could pave the way for Hill to bump up a notch on the depth chart.

Although Hill's checkered medical history includes four season-ending injuries in college, he has intriguing potential as a dual-threat quarterback if he were ever to get an extended look in the NFL at any point.

CBS trying to make news where there isn't any.

If you think that you have the true successor to Drew Brees on your roster, are you blitzing him? Four season ending injuries in college says certainly not.

Sean Payton plays poker.... and if you are eyeing someone in the draft saying Hill is the prospect is perfect.

Re: Taysom Hill (QB)

If anything ,Hill looks to be a versatile athlete that could possibly contribute in a variety of ways . TE has been a spot,hell I think he could be a hell of hybrid safety /LB. He has already proven an excellent ST player. Definitely exciting to see how we use him going forward!
