Taysom Hill wants to be just like Drew Brees in every sense of the word. On and off the field. Taysom Hill is being groomed to take Drew Brees job eventually and wants to be just like him. Literally, it’s like Hill is his clone.

I do what Drew does,” Hill said, via NOLA.com. “You could ask anybody here. I follow him around. I’ve adopted his schedule.”

“To how he studies for a game. How he prepares for a game both mentally and physically, obviously there’s something there,” Hill said. “He’s been doing it for a long time and he’s got a lot more experience than I do and I’ve tried to take advantage of all of his experience and adopt that into my routine.”

Brees is actually in a contract year. It’s no lock he returns to the Saints. New Orleans clearly values Hill. Sean Payton compared him to Steve Young. Hill, 29, at some point is going to get his chance. It’s looking more and more likely that he is going to be the Saints starter at some point.

Where does Teddy Bridgewater factor in the discussion? Is Hill favored over him to take the job long term? This is fascinating. Drew Brees is 40 and didn’t play his best football late in the 2018 season. At some point, the Saints are going to have to make a decision on all 3 of these guys.
