It feels like you possibly can officially end any considered Tayson Hill being full-time QB1 for the Latest Orleans Saints.
Nonetheless, don’t consider him a full-time tight end, either, even when the Saints said he could be moving to the position this offseason.
On Thursday, Latest Orleans head coach Dennis Allen said he views Hill as a “multi-position” weapon. The 31-year-old Swiss Army knife played tight end, Wildcat quarterback and special teams the last two years, along with starting nine games at quarterback.
“In other words, simply because he’s technically moving to TE, I might expect to see Hill in most of the same roles as years past in read-option packages and as a runner and on special teams,” ESPN Saints author Mike Triplett wrote.
If we needed to guess by the responses to the news, most Saints fans are advantageous with Hill playing a the sort of role, so long as he is not the starting QB.
Hill passed for 978 yards, 4 touchdowns and five interceptions last season while also rushing for 374 yards and five scores.
HIs best season as a receiver got here in 2019, when he hauled in 19 receptions for 234 yards and 6 touchdowns.
