The Facts: The Bears have signed Saints restricted free agent TE Hill to an offer sheet, per multiple reports. The Saints have five days to match.
Diehards Line:Hill caught 16 passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns last year. The Saints probably thought he’d play a larger role in the passing game after they traded Jimmy Graham. In three seasons, Hill has 36 receptions for 340 yards and eight touchdowns. The Bears re-signed tight ends Zach Miller and Rob Housler earlier in free agency and traded Martellus Bennett to the Patriots. The Saints previously lost tight end Ben Watson to the Ravens via free agency and signed former Colts Coby Fleener early in free agency.
