In Sean Payton’s offense, Taysom Hill is the New Orleans Saints coach’s Swiss Army Knife, with Hill capable of throwing passes, executing blocks and running and catching the ball. 

But as he officially becomes a restricted free agent March 18, the former BYU signal caller said it may be time to achieve his ultimate goal of being a starting quarterback in the NFL. The Saints can match any offer sheet Hill receives from another team.

“I definitely view myself as a franchise quarterback,” Hill, who will turn 30 before the start of next season, told the Associated Press. “As you look at the other questions, ‘Is it New Orleans, is it somewhere else?’ as you go into free agency, this is the time that you start to find out how people view you.”
