Saints do-everything QB Taysom Hill blocks punt, scores receiving and rushing TDs

Does Taysom Hill really even have a position? Nobody in the NFL has more job titles.

Hill, who occasionally lines up at quarterback for the New Orleans Saints, got his team off to a great start on Thanksgiving.

You won’t often hear this about a quarterback: Hill got a blocked punt and a receiving touchdown in the first four minutes of New Orleans’ Thanksgiving game against the Atlanta Falcons. Then he added a rushing touchdown late in the first half for good measure.

On the punt block, the athletic Hill beat his man inside, then used his size to extend and get his left hand on the punt.
