Hill's unconventional climb making Saints a greater threat

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Saints third-string quarterback Taysom Hill never envisioned launching his body across the path of a punted ball when he arrived in New Orleans last season to serve as an understudy to record-setting passer Drew Brees.

Yet his momentum-changing blocked punt in last week's comeback victory at Tampa Bay became just his latest highlight that has nothing to do with dropping back from the line of scrimmage and throwing a football.

It has become increasingly apparent this season that the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Hill has the potential to become the NFL's ultimate utility player. And if doing so improves the Saints' Super Bowl odds, Hill's game.
