Saints reportedly make big decision on Taysom Hill’s future
The New Orleans Saints are hunting for a quarterback, but Taysom Hill does not appear to be in consideration for the job at all.
Though Hill has long been hyped as a sort of hybrid player, the idea of him as a quarterback is reportedly off the table. The Athletic’s Larry Holder said on FiriusXM’s “Fantasy Dirt” that the experiment of Hill at quarterback is “over,” and he is not even being considered for the job.

This hardly comes as a surprise, as the Saints have been reluctant to put much faith in him during meaningful games. Hill also suffered a significant foot injury in January, so there are questions about his health as well.
The Saints tried and failed to trade for Deshaun Watson, but that failure left them back at square one. Instead of looking to Hill, they clearly prefer another option instead.
