The Facts: Following up on a previous item. ... The Saints have announced they matched Chicago's offer sheet for RFA TE Hill.
Diehards Line: The decision to retain Hill comes despite the addition of free agent Coby Fleener. Hill's three-year deal will keep him in place through the 2018 season. He caught 16 passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns as a complement to veteran Benjamin Watson, who left in free agency for Baltimore. So with Fleener, Hill and Michael Hoomanawanui all under contract, the Saints still have a full depth chart at the position.
