His best fit in New Orleans is not as a starting quarterback.

Lastly, it is obvious that his best fit is not being a full-time quarterback. Taysom Hill made a splash in the NFL last year, but it wasn’t for his arm. He made a splash because of the versatility that Sean Payton used him as on the field.

If you look at Hill’s stats, his running and receiving stats far outweigh his passing stats. His best opportunity is to continue to be the Swiss Army knife that Payton has used him as. He could continue to be a huge part of the offense that way.

He will continue to be a top-level and coveted player as long as he keeps doing what he is doing. He is thriving in that position. I agree that the Saints should pay Hill more, but Hill should also be content being an all-around player.

I am afraid that if Taysom Hill decides he wants to be a starting quarterback that he will either leave or stay and his career will be cut short because that is not who he is. I would hate to see all of that talent wasted on being someone he is not.
