Make no mistake about it: Teams around the league are seeking their own version of Saints quarterback Taysom Hill.

Need proof?

NFL.com, the league’s official website, published an article in May to identify at least three teams — the Baltimore Ravens, Los Angeles Chargers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers — using a 2019 draft pick on a versatile backup quarterback.



Now, the New England Patriots are tinkering with former LSU quarterback Danny Etling at wide receiver. And Nick Underhill, former Saints beat reporter for The Advocate now covering the Patriots for The Athletic, recently pointed out that Etling has taken snaps as personal protector with the punt unit during June’s organized team activities.

For his part, Hill is aware of what’s happening around the league. But he doesn’t take a sense of personal pride in knowing other teams are attempting to find their own version of him.

Instead, the versatile signal-caller is happy to help open the door for other players possessing the same skill set to compete for a roster spot on a team.

“I like creating other opportunities for guys like myself in the NFL,” Hill said after Sunday’s practice. “It’s not an easy leap to make it in, and if you can create opportunities for guys that can do different things, like, that’s been a really cool thing.

Looks like Coach Payton has created a meta of sorts!
