Saints quarterback Taysom Hill has become an oddly polarizing figure in NFL circles. Naysayers point to a limited track record at quarterback. Supporters rely on the impact he has whenever he enters a game.
The biggest question regarding Hill relates to whether he’ll succeed Drew Brees as the starting quarterback in New Orleans. Naysayers say no way, given the team’s constant search for a primary backup to Brees other than Hill. Supporters look to the two-year, $21 million contract he signed early this year as proof that, come 2021, Hill will be the king.
