Why would they sign Hill to a two-year, 21 million dollar contact as well?? If I were Hill, I'd be PO that I was told I deserve the No. 2 spot by Payton, yet they do this.

 

Good sign by them tho.

Hill is a flex. He is never going to be a starter. Plus you don’t want to use Hill so much and have him as the backup. I believe last year when Brees got hurt they stopped using him. This is a good spot for Winston. He can show them what he has for a year and if they think he can be the heir to breaks they can keep him. If not hopefully the QB market next year isn’t as saturated. Bucs basically waited to long and there was no where for him to go.

Payton said that both Hill himself & the Saints see him as a future starting QB, and hopefully their starting QB after Drew Brees' final season. 
 

Payton stayed Hill would be the No. 2 QB. It makes no sense as to why Winston would sign unless they plan to sign him now and potentially trade him later this offseason when a team needs a QB.
 

He will play the F position this year, and hopefully take over after Brees retires were close to the exact words that came out of Payton's mouth. This is kind of a shot in the foot to Hill

He can say what he wants and he might give it a try but the guy is not a starter. Watch people’s actions instead of words. Hill is also like 32 years old.

He will be 30 before season starts...

Saints are trying to win a championship. Signing Winston says that they know if Brees goes down, Hill can’t get them there.  Plus Hill has a ridiculous injury history.  Almost unbelievable the way injuries ravaged his college career.  I just can’t picture him as a starter taking every snap for 16 games without getting hurt.  But he’s fun to watch though.

Hill got 21 million with 16 million guarenteed for passing for 55 yards and getting around 400 total yards running and catching the ball. Hill should give the Saints a wet kiss regardless..

I wonder whose idea it was. Brees is Payton’s homie until he dies but he seems about as excited about the situation he’s in with him as Ted Thompson was with Favre towards the end. And personal opinions of his own aside, he flat out knows Brees is very limited at this point.

It’s actually a good situation for Winston and the saints. He wanted to go there he said to learn from the best. Maybe the QB market next year is better. Plus if he shows up and work hard the saints could make him the heir to Brees.

Definitely a good idea talking strictly talent. Winston can sling it deep like Payton likes and like Brees can’t anymore and he doesn’t care if he throws a pick. And Winston’s mind is probably underrated. Tampa Bay was hot Cleveland tbh.


They have Hill though and extended him 21 M. Idk...

    • He said not coaches or one day contracts which is how those guys did.   I forgot about him, but he also is more of the not bigger named guy. He had less than a fullseason of total games over the 2 years he was there
    • Look man I don’t know what’s going on in there and you don’t either. I’m sure he is likable because so many people say it.  But I would be surprised if there weren’t several guys who were rolling their eyes when they brought JB in on that goal line play.  I’d also be surprised if many players weren’t aware that JB has gotten a lot of praise and more importantly so much money with such an abysmal number of horrific QBR games and he got progressively worse. I would be absolutely shocked if offensive players weren’t happy PR was brought in.  JB is also a stat killer which leads to lost money.     I don’t think JB gives a team a very good chance of winning any game.     I can see why people look at the 5and 2 but JB was not any good overall the first 7 games and was godawful in his last 7.     hes 27 or so and has no future here.  We have to develop someone or start losing a lot quickly for draft position because this team will need someone soon.   There is a few types of players I’d prefer. 1. A vet who has won some games.  Hasselbach, Foles,  Smith types.2.  A lights out athlete that might be able to shock another team if he has to come in for a game or two. 3.  Or someone being developed.   if we knew we had our guy, that would be one thing.   i totally wanted rivers and am glad we have him but he is on short time.  I think you are wasting a spot.   we could have had newton, Winston, dalton and a number of others As backups.  if we were really that serious about this year.  We could have cut JB and signed two of those guys if we wanted to.p without losing any money.        
    • Yeah listing the defense is a little tougher. I have to think about it. Offense was pretty easy. Leaving Edge off bothers me but Dickerson was better IMO and played here long enough to make this team. Dickerson was better than Faulk as well at least IMO. 
    • Well that’s the thing trey back they are healthy at TE now as Doyle played last week and Mo has been ballin out.
    • Interesting view of both QB's in this upcoming game..... (They're both advised to "sit em")   https://www.nfl.com/news/nfl-fantasy-football-start-em-sit-em-week-4-quarterbacks
