Taysom Hill signs extension with Saints
New Orleans’ offense took a big step forward by tying down one of its most versatile elements. Via Adam Schefter of ESPN, this Monday it was confirmed that the QB Taysom Hill signed a 4-year contract extension with the Saints, thus ensuring his stay in the team until the 2025 NFL Season, however, his salary will be linked to the position he plays on the field.
The deal will have a base value of $ 40 million if Hill remains in his current job, but could earn up to an additional $ 55 million (raising the contract even to $ 95 million) if he manages to become the Saints’ starting quarterback within the next few years. four seasons. However, no matter what position Hill plays in, the extension includes fully guaranteed $ 22.5 million.
The decision by New Orleans really makes sense bearing in mind that Hill is a player who can perform in multiple positions. This season he lost the battle for being the starting quarterback to Jameis Winston, but in 2020, replacing the already retired Drew Brees, Hill posted 88 of 121 completions for 928 yards, 4 TDs and 2 INTs.
Meanwhile, this 2021 accumulates 20 carries for 104 yards and 3 TDs, in addition to 4 receptions for 52 yards, and another 56 extra yards and 1 INT serving as QB. However, he has missed three games this year due to a concussion and did not participate in the previous Sunday’s game against the Eagles due to a foot injury. What do you think of this move by the Saints?
Adam Trautman, outside 4-6 weeks
More news about SaintsHowever, this time they are not good. Via Adam Schefter of ESPN, this Monday it was confirmed that the TE Adam Trautman He will miss 4-6 weeks of play after spraining his medial collateral ligament in New Orleans’ loss to Philadelphia the previous Sunday.
Trautman left the game prematurely against the Eagles after hitting a 17-yard reception in the fourth quarter. And additionally, with the Saints playing Thanksgiving this coming Thursday, the sophomore tight end appeared on Monday’s team injury report as a “non-runner” due to a knee injury.
The Dayton alumnus came to New Orleans as a third-round pick in 2020 and has since recorded 40 receptions for 412 yards and 2 TDs. This season he has started 8 of the 10 games he has played and his loss occurs just after the best game he had this year, where he accumulated 5 receptions for 58 yards and 1 touchdown.
To fill the gap, the Saints have Juwan Johnson, Nick Vannett and Garrett Griffin as tight ends, however, the loss that Trautman represents further depletes an offense that previously had already run out of QB1 Jameis Winston, so now, at best, they could only have Trautman back for the last three games of the year. How will New Orleans overcome this tough loss?
Saints’ TE Adam Trautman suffered a sprained MCL during Sunday’s loss to the Eagles that is expected to sideline him 4-6 weeks, per source.

It was Dalton’s first game since Week 5 and Thursday would be his first starting game since Week 2. The Bears (3-7) are 1-1 when Dalton starts and 2-2 when he has had to. step on the field.
Additionally, while initial reports indicate that Fields escaped a more serious injury, the short week points to starting Dalton as a safer and more prudent move on Chicago’s part. Dalton, who came to the team in the previous offseason under a 1-year contract, has accumulated 48 of 73 completions this season for 471 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT.

Washington would get Logan Thomas back
After two consecutive victories, the WFT seems to have regained its rhythm, and things could continue to improve. Via Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, this Monday it was reported that the TE Logan Thomas return to training sessions Washington as of Wednesday of this week.
Thomas has been on the Injured Reserve since he suffered a hamstring injury in Week 4, when the Football Team defeated the Falcons. If the move is confirmed, once he is officially designated to return, the WFT will have a 21 day period to decide whether to activate Thomas to the 53 roster or return him to IR to end his year.
The Virginia Tech graduate, in just three games he has played this season, has 12 receptions for 117 yards and 2 TDs. His return would not be very pleasant news for the Latin American community since the Chilean TE, Sammis Reyes, it would surely see a decrease in the game, however, Washington’s attack will have one of its best offensive weapons back.
