The New Orleans Saints finally have a plan when it comes to Taysom Hill.

Per head coach Dennis Allen, Hill is going to focus on exclusively being a tight end.

Hill has played multiple positions during his time with the Saints. He was always seen as a hybrid player under Sean Payton as he was split out wide, put in the backfield, or lined up under center. When Jameis Winston went down last season, Hill was one of the players who started some games at quarterback. He completed 58% of his passes and threw for 978 yards with four touchdowns and five interceptions. The NFL wold is excited for him to stay at one position now.

With Hill having a set position, that means Winston can focus on being the starter again since he was brought back a couple of weeks ago.

Hill only had 52 receiving yards on four receptions last season. His best pass-catching season came in 2019 when he racked up 234 yards and six touchdowns off of 19 receptions.
