No. 2 Quarterback Taysom Hill:
Taysom Hill has taken the NFL by storm with his insane athleticism, remarkable speed, and incredible strength.
Sean Payton’s prized possession in his bag of tricks has the ability to play quite literally any position whenever he is asked to do so.
He has also managed to stay healthy despite his injury-plagued college career. Drew Brees’ injury limited Taysom a little bit this year but he still managed to throw for 55 yards, rush for 156 yards, and haul in 19 catches for 234 yards.
He also scored seven total touchdowns. His stellar game in the NFC Wild Card game vs the Minnesota Vikings showed the entire league his star potential.
Sean Payton has deemed Taysom as a Steve Young type of player which is a huge compliment considering Taysom Hill is a relatively unproven passer.
Taysom’s athleticism, willingness to compete, and incredible playmaking abilities should make him a key player for the Saints to retain this upcoming offseason.
