Many may think this is crazy as Hill has already secured a huge new contract and is set to make over $16 million next season. However, Hill has never been a highly impactful member of the offense.
Yes, he was arguably the best player in the team’s Wild Card loss. Yes, he’s thrived in the Big Easy. It’s difficult to say Hill has been a star that commends and eight-figure salary when he’s played in under a fourth of the team’s offensive snaps the last two seasons.
That’ll change for Hill this season.
The versatile, do-it-all quarterback, tight end, wide receiver combo should see an uptick in snaps and therefore an increase in production. It wouldn’t be too out there to think Hill could more than double his 27 carries and 19 receptions he saw in 2019.
The clock is ticking for the 29-year-old to show that he belongs as the team’s main signal-caller for the distant future, a position that could be his to lose. That said, 2020 will be the year Hill breaks out as the superstar the Big Easy knows he is.
