Saints place Brees on injured reserve

The move only makes sense when you consider what the team is paying Hill for the 2020 and 2021 seasons.

Hill has been with New Orleans since his rookie season in 2017 and this offseason signed a two-year extension worth about $21 million, a signal that the Saints considered him a legitimate candidate to step in when Brees retires.

The undrafted 30-year-old did serve as a quarterback during his five-year college career at Brigham Young University, however.

Instead, Schefter reports that Winston will not be part of any offensive packages for the Saints, serving as Hill's backup.

ESPN's Ed Werder first reported on Monday that Brees suffered two fractured ribs in Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers and three other fractured ribs on his right side the previous week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that were not seen on an X-ray. The deal included a $16 million signing bonus.

It would be Hill's first start at quarterback. Brissett was the Indianapolis Colts' starter last season before being replaced by Philip Rivers this year. A Pro Bowler in 2015, Winston has completed 2,559 passes for 19,812 yards and 121 touchdowns with 88 interceptions in his career.

Winston completed six of 10 passes in the second half of the Saints' Week 11 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He has thrown only 18 regular-season passes in his National Football League career, completing 10 for 205 yards with one interception.

Hill has primarily been used as a rushing threat in New Orleans' offense, though he's also played as a receiver.

Although New Orleans has a pretty friendly upcoming schedule, Hill still has plenty of responsibility on his shoulders.
