METAIRIE, La. - The New Orleans Saints and multi-purpose offensive player Taysom Hill have reached an agreement on a unique four-year contract extension that could pay Hill up to $95 million, a league source confirmed to the Times-Picayune.

ESPN's Adam Schefter was the first to report the terms of the extension, which will pay Hill at least $40 million the next four seasons — including $22.5 million guaranteed — but could go as high as $95 million if Hill earns the Saints starting quarterback job.

Hill's current contract was set to void after the 2021 season, and the team would have carried an $8.9 million salary cap hit in 2022 even if he had not been on the roster.
