In an interview with WWL Radio, Saints coach Sean Payton said Hill will go into the 2020 season as the team's backup quarterback.
Payton added he was "cleared" on Tuesday after being diagnosed with COVID-19 last week, stating, "I"m feeling a lot better."
The dynamic Hill's carried, caught and thrown his way into fandom as a Swiss Army knife-like option for Payton's exciting brand of offense.
However, Hill, a standout on special teams, has only thrown 13 passes with six completions in the regular season. He did however complete a huge 50-yarder against the Vikings in last season's playoffs during a game in which New Orleans lost, but Hill emerged as a burgeoning star with his versatility showcased.
For now, though, Hill is moving up the depth chart.
