SALT LAKE CITY — New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton seems to consistently have something positive to say about reserve quarterback/do-it-all playmaker Taysom Hill.
On Tuesday during a segment on ESPN’s “Get Up!” Payton talked about Hill’s role for the Saints in the upcoming season. During the tail end of answering a question posed by host Mike Greenberg, the coach also hinted that Hill’s chance to compete for a starting QB position may come sooner than originally imagined for a franchise that has seen All-Pro quarterback Drew Brees leading the Saints since 2006.
“First and foremost, we still view him as a quarterback.
