Taysom Hill (8/23/1990) is known as the “Swiss Army Knife” and entered the NFK as an undrafted free agent on May 5th with the Green Bay Packers. He has since moved on to the New Orleans Saints agreeing to a two-year, $21 million extension that’ll keep him with the Saints through 2021.
In 2020 with the Saints Hill caught 8 balls for 98 yards, ran the ball 87 times for 457 yards, and had a total of 9 touchdowns. Many talking heads on ESPN flirted with the idea he will be the starting QB for the Saints in 2021… huh? We don’t see this happening but time will tell.
