In a post by Bleacher Report, they say that New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill hasn’t shown enough talent for the team’s future.
The New Orleans Saints are likely going to have a decision to make at the end of the year. With this most likely being Drew Brees last season, Sean Payton and the front office will need to decide how they are going to move forward with the most important position on the team.
They have four major options when it comes to replacing Brees. No. 1, they can name Taysom Hill the future. No. 2, they can name Jameis Winston the future. No. 3, they can trade for a quarterback. No. 4, they can draft a quarterback.
After Brees went down with an injury, all fans were split over whether Payton should start Taysom Hill or Jameis Winston. Payton ended up starting Taysom Hill, and Hill proved, at least according to Maurice Moton from Bleacher Report, that he isn’t the future.
Sean Payton said earlier last week in an interview that, “He [Jameis] is going to have the opportunity to start in New Orleans the minute that Drew retires.” All of this speculation from Payton would give us the thought that this really is Brees’ last season.
This leads to the fact that Jameis is going to have a shot at the starting job. Is Taysom Hill good enough to steal a quarterback battle from Winston? I severely doubt it. His three wins this season were carried mostly by the defense.
“The Saints should look at the future of the position in a fluid manner, because although Hill was good enough to lead his squad to victory in three games against sub-.500 opponents, his play leaves much to be desired.
“Winston, the No. 1 overall pick from the 2015 class, has the draft pedigree and five years of starting experience to intrigue the Saints’ front office. Furthermore, he’s four years younger than Hill.”
Winston has the experience and talent that Hill just doesn’t have. Hill is good at what he does being a do-it-all player for the team, but he is just simply not the full-time starter in the future for the New Orleans organization.
