There are few things Taysom Hill, the New Orleans Saints swiss army knife, can’t do on the football field.
Yet, in the 2022 NFL season, he will see a different — defined — role. The good news is that he’s at peace with the change.
“Things aren’t up to me,” Hill told reporters. “And so, with that being said, I’m willing to do what I need to do to help us win football games. I’m at peace with that. … I love playing, and so it creates opportunities for me to add value and be on the field. … That’s the nature of the NFL. This isn’t necessarily what I want, it’s what’s best for the team and I’m good with that.”
During his five-year career, he’s caught 47 passes for 388 yards and seven touchdowns. Hill has also passed for 2,025 yards and eight touchdowns, and he’s run for 1,183 yards and 16 touchdowns.
A triple threat in every sense of the word.
Yet, in 2022, he will be a second-string tight end. No longer will he serve as a do-it-all swiss army knife. And for the first time in his career, he will have a defined role.
It isn’t perfect, but Hill is working with it. And Hill is embracing the challenge.
Not bad for a guy who went undrafted five seasons ago.
