Taysom Hill’s wild NFL career is expected to take another crazy turn Sunday, when the former BYU quarterback will start at quarterback for the New Orleans Saints against the Atlanta Falcons, according to reports.

It would be the first start of Hill’s career at quarterback in the pros, and his first since his senior year at BYU in 2016.

What Taysom Hill getting his first expected start means for New Orleans Saints

Hill shared some sage advice Saturday as part of the #GiveThanks initiative, a social media movement sparked earlier this week by President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“We can’t control what life brings, we can only control how we respond to it,” Hill wrote on Twitter. “My journey to the NFL has had the highs, the lows and everything in between— and I’m grateful for all of it! #GiveThanks” 

Hill’s NFL career began as an undrafted free agent who signed with the Green Bay Packers, then joined the Saints as a rookie when he was waived by the Packers. Since then, he has became a jack-of-all-trades for New Orleans, lining up at a variety of offensive positions while also playing special teams.
