I dunno about bringing in a veteran. Now would be the perfect time to draft a QB that could learn from Brees and then eventually compete with or back up Hill. Plus you get a year to evaluate them before deciding if you need to trade up for a QB next year.Seems to me they will bring in a veteran backup and wait to draft a prospect next year when they should have some more draft capital via comp picks to move up. Looks to me like we are all in on another SB run this year with Drew back and will dedicate picks to that purpose rather than on developing a QB prospect or trading our starting 22 for Joe Burrow (as much fun as that was to dream about).
Could be if Sean likes one in the middle of the draft. Might take a flier if nobody else is a value at the time. I still think Drew's shoes are too big to fill with anyone except a prospect at the top of the draft, and even then it is a gamble.I said that in a couple of threads already talking about backup QB. Payton had more or less hinted at it in a couple of things he said months ago. I don't think too much necessarily has to change. I think we will see all his plays on offense still fly. The only thing I don't see happening is special teams but who knows. And it of course has it challenges. How do you get him prepared by taking snaps as the backup in practice as well as all his other roles. And how do you have the third guy ready if he is banged up. I think the answer is, you don't. If he gets banged up and Drew has to come out then I think you are in trouble. But only for that one game maybe.
that would not surprise me at all. Even if Taysom ends up being the answer long term its always good to have a youngster in training, especially for a guy like Sean. If you can't keep him you can always get something decent for one who has been developed well.Could be if Sean likes one in the middle of the draft.

We're taking what Payton says to the media literally? I wouldn't be so fast. I'm still predicting Taysom Hill sees fairly significant snaps on offense. Now, his time on special teams might not be as significant this season. He's still "JK1", if we apply the same abbreviation style like we do with other positionsNah, read this.
EDIT: For those that can't, Payton is basically saying Taysom will be the #2 QB but will also be the #1 in the Joker role doing his usual stuff. Because he could get a finger pointing sideways playing TE they will need a #3 QB active every game.
I am assuming that Sean Payton would not let his talent be wasted either. Why would his role be any different just because of a QB2 label?
