Brees, who played with Hill for four years in New Orleans, believes that Hill should keep playing some quarterback, just as he did under former head coach Sean Payton.
“You re-sign Jameis [Winston], coming off the knee injury. To me, there’s no doubt that he’s going to come back stronger than ever and have some more wisdom, experience and maturity under his belt. Andy Dalton played a lot of football, started a lot of games, won a lot of games, taking teams to the playoffs,” Brees told NoLa.com. “With those two guys, plus the role that Taysom plays, which I still am a believe that Taysom should be playing 10-15 snaps at quarterback a game at a minimum, just with the threat he is. I know he’s so valuable in so many other ways. I think they’re pretty set at quarterback, if you ask me.”
Although Payton loved what Hill was able to do as a quarterback/running back/receiver/special teamer, new head coach Dennis Allen seems to want a more traditional approach to the position.
