The Facts: Hill played the most snaps at tight end for the Saints during the 2017 season and he did it with what sounds like quite a bothersome injury to one of his fingers. According to multiple reports, Hill had surgery recently to repair a finger injury that he played through during both the regular season and playoffs.
Diehards Line: The finger was reportedly bent at a 90-degree angle. ... Hill, who has played for the Saints since 2013, had 16 catches for 125 yards and a touchdown in the regular season. He added six more catches for 103 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans’ two postseason outings. Hill, Michael Hoomanawanui and Coby Fleener, who ended the year on injured reserve with a concussion, are under contract at tight end for the Saints in 2018.
