Interesting.

Not sure if anyone will put up that 1st rounder.. but if they do... what a decision to make.

First Round tender. If another team makes an offer, then you really have to look at where that pick is in the draft. If it a late first-round pick, then you have to really look at the contract offer and make a decision. If a team higher than 20 or so decides to make a play, you really have to think about just taking the pick.

Does anyone think that the Patriots at pick #23 could make a play for Hill? If they "let" Tom Brady leave, that would be a perfect situation for Hill and the Patriots.

Why else would Sean have been talking him up? I don't think they really want to lose him or else they would have put a second round tender on him. If they really wanted to keep him, though, they would sign him to a contract. This is going to be an interesting free agency period.
Either coach really likes Taysom or he’d really like to get a first round pick for him. Could be either one.

LOL, he ain't going no where. This is all FA ploys. I'm cool with giving him 5 mil per year as a multi-use player but no one is commit to making him their starting QB.

I was listening to an NFL Off-season Podcast this afternoon, and that was one possibility they brought up even if Brady stays for another year or so.

One of the hosts (a New England fan) speculated that Belichick / McDaniels are enamored with the thought of having an Offensive weapon as versatile as Taysom Hill in that he fulfills so many roles other than being a Quarterback. McDaniels also loves his trick plays and having another guy who can throw the Football along with Edelman opens up so many trick play possibilities, reverse throwbacks..etc..

They also mentioned giving up pick #23 won't be so bad for them because that means they would view him as the new heir apparent to Brady after two seasons or so. If they like Taysome better than some of the QBs in this Draft.. Love, Eason, Fromm... then why not give up their first this year?

I think Taysom is get a 7.5 to 8 million per year offer. I'm willing to bet the Saints would go to 12 million per year. If someone offers him starting QB 17 to 20 million, he'll be in a different uniform next year
Some of you people have lost your damned minds.

They paid the guy in front of Taysom on the depth chart $7mm last year. There's no way they're going to pay him $5 million per year more than that.

$12mm/year is what Keenan Allen makes. Good grief.

Well Taysom is a better QB than Keenan Allen so he should command more

The rumor I heard is that Taysom has asked to be tendered as a first right of refusal. (lowest tender). His agent does not want him to sign a multi year tender unless there is a full test of his market value.

If he is tendered as a first round then any offer he gets would be discounted by whatever the perceived cash value of the particular draft pick is.

The saints are actually considering this. If They go the expected route and 1st round him then in 2021 he will be even more valuable and an URFA. So, if they agree to his request then Taysom will be open to signing a multi year deal at a fair valuation.

In other words. Loomis if you play fair with me I'll lock myself in as a Saint. Otherwise I'll more likely follow the money in 2021.

It makes sense for the Saints. Taysom's value is likely to rise considerably if he gets a lot more QB time this year and does well.

Someone asked which pick a team with more than one 1st round has to forfeit. I believe it is buyer's choice.

Miami could give their 26th pick for Taysom as an example or the Panthers could deal their 7th pick for a late 1st round plus compensation and then use that late round to buy Taysom. Get double value for their pick.

If I remember right a team has to give up THEIR pick. It cant be one they traded for. Only the one they "earned".

If that's right the fins would have to give up their 4th not one of the later ones.

But I could be wrong.

I wonder if a team with multiple 1st round selections, like Miami, is allowed to decide which 1st round pick to offer.
I think it would be that team’s original pick and not any others they have acquired through trades...etc. I could not imagine the league having it any other way.

The fact that some people don't realize that Free Agency and the draft include a lot of deception is concerning. This past year we had at least 2-3 guys at WR that were camp beast but never made the team. I'll be the first to I was wrong if some one seeks to make him their starting QB come May but I we'll all know in a of couple of months.
