Report: Taysom Hill getting first-round tender from Saints

If Taysom Hill wants to be valued like a franchise quarterback, he’s going to be very happy with what the New Orleans Saints will reportedly do with his restricted free agent tender.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Saints are placing a first-round tender on Hill, and the team intends to re-sign him as soon as possible.

Hill has said he wants to be viewed as a franchise quarterback. This should satisfy him on that front, and may even help contract negotiations along.
