Saints head coach Sean Payton said Taysom Hill has made considerable progress as a quarterback, but the Saints like him in the versatile role Hill played last season.
Payton made the comments Monday, after practice in Metairie. He said Hill and Teddy Bridgewater are both further along as quarterbacks than they were a year ago.
Sunday against the Chargers, Hill fueled a second half comeback win. He was the Saints leading rushing with 53 yards, and also threw for 136 yards and two touchdowns.
The Saints break training camp Thursday.
The Saints play at the New York Jets Saturday night. Kickoff is 6:30 pm New Orleans time.
