Saints Sign Quarterback Taysom Hill to 2-Year Deal: Report

Quarterback tied to New Orleans through 2021

The New Orleans Saints and quarterback Taysom Hill have agreed to a two-year deal. Hill confimred the news in a post on his Instagram account.

"I’ve had this dream since I was a little kid of playing in the NFL," Hill wrote. "The New Orleans Saints made that dream a reality, and over the past 3 years I’ve had the opportunity to play with and for some of the best men I’ve ever known. I am humbled and grateful that my wife, future son, and I get to continue living our dream in the city we love, with the people we love! Thank you NOLA!"

The deal was first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Hill was a restricted free agent that was set to return to New Orleans on a $4.6 million tender.

The Saints claimed the former BYU quarterback, who's since become a jack-of-all trades, off waivers in 2017. He’s become a key player for New Orleans scoring nine touchdowns over the past two seasons while lining up at a variety of positions on offense and special teams.

The decision to sign Hill to a two-year deal comes on the same day that the Saints are reportedly finalizing a deal to bring in Jameis Winston as well.

Either Hill or Winston could be in line to succeed Drew Brees when the future Hall of Fame quarterback retires.
