New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said that former BYU quarterback Taysom Hill will be Drew Brees’ primary backup in 2020.

Payton confirmed Hill’s move up the Saints’ depth chart on Wednesday, March 25.

The former BYU QB spent the 2019 season as a versatile offensive weapon for New Orleans but was QB3 on the team’s depth chart.

“He’s earned that opportunity,” Payton said of Hill’s move to QB2.
