On Monday, New Orleans Saints will renew their contract with Taysom Hill for four years. As one of the most unique players in the NFL, Taysom Hill’s contract is also unique.
According to reports, if Taysom Hill continues to perform multiple roles (substitute quarterback, running back, wide receiver, close end, special team member) according to the current positioning, the total remaining contract salary will be 40 million US dollars. But if Taysom Hill becomes the starting quarterback for New Orleans Saints, the contract salary can reach up to $95 million.
Taysom Hill’s contract includes a $22.5 million guarantee, and he was originally scheduled to become a free agent after the end of this season. Although Taysom Hill failed to match Jameis Winston or Trevor Siemian in the starting position, New Orleans Saints renewed the contract to show that they still value Taysom Hill.
Compared with previous years, Taysom Hill’s performance this season is relatively flat. At present, Taysom Hill has completed 7 passes with 8 passes, advancing for 56 yards, without touchdowns, and being intercepted once. He also rushed the ball 20 times, advanced 104 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 4 catches for 52 yards.
