Taysom Hill expects to be viewed as franchise quarterback
The New Orleans Saints have some juggling to do with their quarterbacks this offseason, and one of the three is making it pretty clear how he expects to be valued.
Taysom Hill, a restricted free agent this offseason, told Rob Maaddi of the Associated Press during Super Bowl week that he expects to be viewed as a franchise quarterback and would look elsewhere if the New Orleans Saints don’t see him that way.
I see Taysom Hill trending. He told me Super Bowl week: "I definitely view myself as a franchise QB. .. If New Orleans don't view me that way then I have to leave." Also he loves playing with Drew Brees, hopes to continue doing so. Full interview: https://t.co/CZvuLzPHyQ pic.twitter.com/KQLpsWuYAH

Hill makes it pretty clear that he doesn’t want to leave the Saints, and the Saints don’t want Hill to leave. Drew Brees has even floated a time-sharing proposal with Hill at quarterback, which suggests just how highly the Saints think of him.
Hill’s versatility is a huge bonus, and Brees is coming toward the end of his career. Expect the Saints to value Hill exactly how he wants to be valued.
