New Orleans Saints: Taysom Hill or Teddy Bridgewater, choose one?
With New Orleans Saints’ QB Drew Brees contemplating retirement, could Taysom Hill or Teddy Bridgewater be legit options to take over at quarterback?
Drew Brees is the greatest player in New Orleans Saints history.
Since signing with the Saints in 2006, Brees has not only given New Orleans its first-ever Super Bowl, but has become a hero off the field as well helping to rebuild a city broken by Hurricane Katrina.
His legacy and story will live on and always be remembered. Unfortunately, sooner rather than later, Brees’ football career will come to an end. At the age of 41, Brees is contemplating retirement this offseason to spend more time with his family.
Although Brees is still playing at a high level and has stated in the past that he wants to play until he’s 45, you have to respect his reasoning to want to walk away from the game.
It will be next to impossible to replace what Brees has done in his career with the Saints and asking someone to try and fill Brees’ shoes is completely unfair.
With that being said, the two other quarterbacks who could potentially start in place of the future Hall of Famer are both upcoming free agents: Taysom Hill (RFA) and Teddy Bridgewater (UFA).
I am a firm believer that Brees will come back for at least one more season, solely based on his competitive nature and how talented the Saints roster is right now. But if Brees were to retire this offseason, would Taysom Hill or Teddy Bridgewater be the better option in New Orleans?
