Former head coach Sean Payton always lifted Taysom Hill’s name into the Heavens when brought up in conversations. But, despite believing that Hill was a starter in the league, the moment Drew Brees hung up his cleats, Payton went with newly signed Jameis Winston instead.

At the age of 31, Hill is still relatively young. There’s a uniqueness to his game. He isn’t the sort of quarterback that you can truly win with but he does just about everything on the field. Hill has played quarterback, running back, receiver, and even special teams. At some point, we wouldn’t be surprised if it was revealed that Hill can coach as well, he’s that versatile.

That previously mentioned versatility is the sort of mouthwatering talent that teams will gravitate towards. Even if he’s pushed into a full-time starter role as a team’s QB, Hill won’t be a fish out of water. In nine career starts under center, Hill has gone 7-2. Simply put, there’s nothing he can’t do.

Trading the 31-year-old would make a ton of sense for a team that should be looking to get younger and build through the draft. Hill’s recent leg injury doesn’t make it easy moving him but it’s not like it’s the end of his career. Once healthy, he’ll get right back to making plays all over the field. Super Bowl contenders are waiting by the phone for the Saints to make the call.
