Big news out of New Orleans yesterday as the New Orleans Saints have given Taysom Hill a new four-year contract.

Hill who is one of the most versatile players in the NFL will be with the Saints for at least the next four more years. Taysom Hill plays the quarterback, running back, special teams, and wide receiver positions for the Saints. When asked what position Hill plays, Taysom says I play football.  We love that answer.

ESPN broke the news and said that Taysom Hill's new contract will pay him $40 million over the next four years if he remains doing what he currently does for the teams which are backup quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and tight end.

Taysom Hill, who is 31 years old now, will get $22.5 million guaranteed. The Saints are currently 5-5 on the season and Hill hasn't been used as a backup quarterback since Winston went down with an injury.

The Saints will be playing this Thursday, November 25th, or Thanksgiving night when they face the Buffalo Bills. The game will be a night game and be aired on NBC. Drew Brees will be on hand to call the game on television and be honored at halftime.
