The New Orleans Saints should be actively looking for a trade partner for Taysom Hill while his value is still high.
In an article published by Jake Rajala with the Canal Street Chronicles, he outlined in the article why the Saints trading Taysom Hill makes sense. They push for the deal to be active in the works and to get done quickly.
“When the Saints let Teddy Bridgewater walk, it was never because Sean Payton intended on Hill to take over the reins in New Orleans. Hill isn’t a franchise quarterback and Payton isn’t putting his trust in someone he allows to throw a dozen times a season,” Rajala wrote.
While that statement is bold and is yet to be seen, Hill, who has under 20 pass attempts on his career, would bring some instability to the backfield.
The article goes on to describe how Sean Payton likes to take risks, and he wanted a young, moldable quarterback to replace Brees in 2021. When Jameis arrived, Payton quickly realized he had his replacement, and Jameis is set to receive the keys to “the Lamborghini of NFL offenses”.
With now being the time when role players get traded, veterans get cut, and free agents sign, it is time for Hill to fall into the role players getting traded. “Hill hasn’t stood out from Jameis Winston despite having been there for three years and Winston for only a few weeks,” he wrote.
With Hill proving that he is no better than a glorified role player (which still has value in the NFL), the Saints need to make a move on him.
If they wait any longer and NFL teams get a chance to see him go from the high production in the Wild Card game to low production in the regular season, they won’t want him anymore.
Here are seven teams the Saints could be pursuing a trade with the get high value for Taysom Hill.
