Could they put a clause in his contract that he makes X amount of dollars as long as Brees is playing but it jumps to Z when Brees retires?

Sounds like they expect to lose Bridgewater to Free Agency.

Saints cant keep all three QB's as Brees and Bridgewater will require starters salary and Hill will get a big jump in pay and that's to much money to invest in one position when only one player is under center.

I think it will be Brees and Hill next year with a drafted QB as the #3 guy or we might actually see Brees retire because the Saints plan to move forward with Hill.

I think that's a foregone conclusion unless TB wants to take a massive discount compared to what he could make on the open market. There are some teams with really bad QB's out there.

Payton has said already that if Brees wants to play that he'll be back in 2020. I agree that they'll find another backup for this year so Hill can continue to be the swiss army knife, be it a draft pick or vet minimum backup.

Taysom is a great gadget player but I’m still skeptical if he can make the leap to full time QB. I mean If Payton sees it and believes it that’s good enough for me. Maybe he is the second coming of Steve Young. But it’s a big leap from doing what he does now to being under center full time.
