The New Orleans Saints are obviously trying to make room in their cap to sign a quarterback. Hopefully, that decision is easy and they can offer Jameis Winston a competitive salary for the position he will be taking on next season.

The team also has Taysom Hill already under contract as well. Hill will serve as a good backup to whoever will replace Drew Brees, but the team, in general, will still be down a quarterback and should be looking for a very cheap third-string option.

If the Saints sign back Jameis Winston, here are four free-agent options the team can sign to be Winston and Hill’s backup.

Taysom Hill is a good backup, but if you take Hill and put him at QB, then you don’t get his other abilities at other positions on the field. It might be best for the front office to explore a player that can be Winston’s backup and still allow Hill to thrive elsewhere.

Either way, there are a handful of quarterbacks out there that the Saints could sign at roughly $1 million or under per year to back up Winston and Hill should they sign Jameis back. Here are the top four players that they should reach out to.
