Hill, not Winston, to start for Saints

Stephen A. Smith Rips Saints For Starting Hill Over Jameis Winston

It's not very possible, if not likely, that we'll next see Brees when the Saints host the Chiefs on Sunday, December 20.

The Saints, however, have maintained that they view Hill as a potential starting quarterback.

Hill, 30, has completed 10 of 18 pass attempts for 205 yards in 46 career games with the Saints.

Outgoing President Donald Trump's administration has made isolating its arch foe Tehran a centerpiece of U.S. regional policy. Two separate sources told Reuters around a dozen American aid workers had left the country this week.


Though Hill's playing time has been limited over his career, the Saints liked him enough to give Hill a $21 million extension in April.

Hill is used in different offensive packages for the Saints even when Brees is healthy.

It was initially presumed that Jameis Winston would start in Week 11 after he took over for Brees last week, but Taysom Hill will be under center. He lost a fumble on his final carry and was sacked once.

Barnier said that, together with Frost, "we have made a decision to suspend the negotiations at our level for a short period". A UK Government spokesman said ministers were now talking to Brussels about the "implications for the negotiations".


Payton declined to announce the Saints' starting quarterback after Friday's practice, despite being asked about the Hill reports. He was 6-of-10 for 63 yards, and though head coach Sean Payton didn't tip his hat in either backup's direction, it appeared as though the 26-year-old former No. 1 pick would be back as a starter.

Here's the definitive proof that the Saints are not bluffing about Taysom Hill's bright future at quarterback.

An injured reserve designation previously would end a players' season with fewer than eight games remaining, but this year the National Football League has adopted more flexible roster rules because of the coronavirus pandemic.

It is also generating a good antibody response . "We believe that this makes the vaccine suitable for emergency use during the pandemic", Zhu added.


That news comes as a surprise considering Winston's lengthy history as a starter. He completed 6 of 10 passes for 63 yards last week with no touchdowns or turnovers, though he did throw one pass that was almost intercepted.
