QB/RB/WR/TE/ST, Taysom Hill
Taysom Hill is unlike any other player on the Saints roster. Truth be told, he is unlike many players in the NFL. A quarterback that has been turned into a running back, wide receiver, special teams hybrid player is unique.
That is, in part, what makes Taysom Hill the big name that he is.
Recently, the Saints extended Hill’s first-round tender contract two more years for a total of roughly $20 million — yes, you read that number right. Hill is due $21 million in the next two seasons. That’s…. rough.
It is hard for me to believe that a player who had almost a 30% dropped pass rate in 2018 is worth that kind of money as a wide receiver or a player who has only thrown six completions in his career is worth it as a quarterback.
He is unique. He does quite a bit. He was arguably the best player on the field in the team’s Wild Card lose. But, he must start to get more involved or the team must find another use for that money.
All five aren’t likely to be traded, but they are the most likely on the roster to find a new home throughout or before the season starts.
