With the news of Drew Brees coming back, Taysom Hill will not be the starter for the New Orleans Saints. Who will pay Hill starter quality money?
Going into this offseason, the New Orleans Saints were in a big pickle. Drew Brees was taking time to make a decision on if he would retire or come back. Teddy Bridgewater was an unrestricted free agent, and Taysom Hill was a restricted free agent.
All three contracted quarterbacks some sort of free agents.
Knowing the history and talent of Drew Brees, if he decided to stay, he would be the starter in New Orleans. Teddy Bridgewater would most likely be signed if Brees retired but not if he came back.
That leaves Taysom Hill the odd man out.
Hill made it known this offseason that he wants to be a starting quarterback and even went as far as to say if that wasn’t with the Saints he would leave New Orleans to accomplish that goal. Interesting.
Well, Drew Brees is returning and will be the opening day starter in New Orleans.
Teddy will presumably leave to be a starter somewhere else based on his showing this season. Now, Taysom Hill will probably take a bigger contract elsewhere to fulfill his dream of being a starting quarterback.
Here are the top three teams that would be interested in Taysom Hill.
