GREEN BAY — Sean Payton loves the story so much that, when given the opportunity to not have to retell it, the New Orleans Saints longtime coach still insisted on regaling his audience with the epic tale of how he ended up with Taysom Hill on his roster.

Hill, of course, has developed into one of the NFL’s most intriguing multi-dimensional weapons — the kind of versatile player who, frankly, would fit in well with the Green Bay Packers, the team that let him go at the end of training camp in 2017 and set the stage for his emergence in The Big Easy.

“There are not too many Taysom Hill-type players out there,” said Packers coach Matt LaFleur, who wasn’t with the team back when Hill was an oft-injured, 27-year-old undrafted rookie quarterback from BYU. “Those are guys that are just tough to find — a guy who can go in there and play special teams, or you can line up him really anywhere on the offensive side of the ball, whether it’s quarterback, running back, tight end, fullback, receiver.

“They’re a rarity, man. And if you definitely have a guy like that, that is an added luxury. I think it puts a lot of stress and a lot of strain on the defensive staff trying to prepare for somebody like that.”

Despite not practicing at any point this past week, there’s still a chance -- albeit a small one -- that the Green Bay Packers will have their star wide receiver in the lineup Sunday night.

Davante Adams will have up until inactives are announced for the inter-conference clash against the New Orleans Saints to determine whether or not he’s healthy enough to play, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Packers receiver Davante Adams is still hoping to play tonight against the Saints.

Although Adams is still officially listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury, he wants to play and he’ll be given every opportunity to show he can go in pregame warmups, according to multiple reports.

Adams did make the trip to New Orleans, which he wouldn’t have done if there were no chance of him playing, so the Packers are holding out hope.

Adams is the Packers’ leading receiver with 17 catches for 192 yards and two touchdowns this season. He was also the Packers’ leading receiver last season, but the...

New Orleans Saints star wide receiver Michael Thomas, who will miss his second straight game Sunday night with a high ankle sprain, was "moving really well" during Friday's workout and wants to play in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions, a league source told ESPN.

Thomas' availability ultimately will hinge on whether he is cleared by doctors, but the record-setting receiver "looked good" this weekend, according to the source.

Thomas has not practiced since he suffered the ankle injury during the final minutes of New Orleans' Week 1 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Can Saints offense get back on track? Who are Green Bay's non-QB stars? 3 things to watch for

At least the New Orleans Saints didn’t have to wait as long as usual to get the bad taste out of their mouths.

Last week was a tough one for the Saints, losing 34-24 to the Las Vegas Raiders in a nationally televised game. Their punishment is to play a surging Green Bay Packers team after a shortened week of preparation in another prime time game.

But history is working on the Saints side. Since the start of the 2010 season, New Orleans has gone 19-3 in prime time games at the Superdome, and they’ve won five straight. The Saints also haven’t lost back-to-back regular-season games since...

'How does a kid like this get cut?' Saints' Taysom Hill faces Packers team that let him go

The 2017 Green Bay Packers had begun trimming their roster to 53 players and Max McCaffrey didn’t make the cut, so he started exchanging goodbyes.

The wide receiver was in good spirits, though, after signing to the New Orleans Saints’ practice squad. As he continued to finish up his business in the locker room, one more person walked in. And McCaffrey had to thank him, because without this rookie quarterback, McCaffrey himself might not have found a landing spot.

“We start talking like, ‘Taysom, it’s been awesome, man. I’m heading out to New Orleans,’” McCaffrey said. “He’s like, ‘Oh...

Remember all the hype surrounding Brees vs. Brady in Week 1?

The Week 3 matchup could be even more intriguing.

And no, I'm not referring to Drew Brees vs. Aaron Rodgers, which I'll get to later.

How about Brees vs. himself?

If you're a Saints' fan, that's really what you'll be paying attention to Sunday night when the Green Bay Packers come to town.

Will it be the Brees of old? Or will it the Brees who's getting old, as many are starting to think after the first two weeks of the season.

With a scaled back offseason and no preseason, it's too soon to write Brees off based on a sample...

Packers receiver Davante Adams is officially doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Saints, with a hamstring injury. Although he wasn’t downgraded to out (which means, as the team has confirmed, he made the trip to New Orleans), the Packers have promoted a receiver from the practice squad.

Darrius Shepherd joins the roster for Sunday night’s game against the Saints.

Joining Shepherd in making the climb from the practice squad are tight end John Lovett and defensive lineman Billy Winn.

The New Orleans Saints have officially signed wide receiver Bennie Fowler and defensive end Margus Hunt back to their active roster, placed running back Ty Montgomery on injured reserve and waived offensive lineman Will Clapp.

It’s been routine during the week early in the season to moved the veterans Fowler and Hunt back and forth from the practice squad to the 53-man roster ahead of game day.

Montgomery (hamstring) was added to the Saints’ injury report Friday. Since he is now on IR, he will miss at least three weeks.

The New Orleans Saints made a host of roster moves on Saturday, the team announced.

The Saints signed veteran wide receiver Bennie Fowler III and veteran defensive end Margus Hunt to the active roster off their practice squad.

Because the Saints signed them to the active roster, New Orleans needed to make two corresponding moves.

Running back Ty Montgomery was placed on reserve/injured after sustaining a hamstring injury that limited him in practice on Friday. He was originally given a "questionable" status for Sunday's game against his old club.

The Saints will look to bounce back after a tough loss in Las Vegas. The team will be without Michael Thomas for the second straight game, so they will be asking the 41-year-old quarterback to lean on Tre’Quan Smith and rusty, Emmanuel Sanders for the second straight matchup.
