The post-Drew Brees era has begun for the New Orleans Saints and the franchise may not be sold on Taysom Hill or Jameis Winston as the future of the franchise, according to ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler. Despite Hill signing a monster extension in March and Winston re-signing with the team, the Saints are looking at Florida signal caller Kyle Trask in the 2021 NFL Draft with one of their later-round selections.
Last season, Trask completed 68.3% of his passes for 4,283 yards and 43 touchdowns as one of college football's most potent passers.
"I'm told the Saints could be a sneaky contender to draft a quarterback somewhere in Day 2 or Day 3,” Fowler said. “I was at Florida’s Pro Day this week to see Kyle Trask throwing and I was told there was a little buzz from the Saints, who like Trask’s game. So he could be a contender for him, whose considered a Day 2 pick.
"Maybe they can get somebody they can develop behind Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill for a year and hav a guy they can slide in for 2022.”
