The deadline for unsigned restricted free agents to sign offers with a team is this Friday, meaning that anyone who wants to sign New Orleans Saints utility player Taysom Hill only has a few days left to weigh the pros and cons. One MAJOR detriment that would come from prying Hill away from the Saints would be the fact that whomever signs him would have to part with a first-round pick. These three NFL teams might be so backwards from a front-office perspective that they might be crazy enough to pull this trade off.
3. New York Jets
Joe Douglas is the GM, but head coach Adam Gase has a lot of say when it comes to personnel matters. The Jets need a backup quarterback behind Sam Darnold, as well as someone who could make Darnold's life easier as a receiver, and Hill could fill both of those roles, to varying degrees of success. The irony of the Jets signing Hill would be how Gase would likely manage to make him ineffective in his Swiss Army knife role, cut him after a year, and watch him succeed elsewhere, as is Gase tradition.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars
While Gardner Minshew is the Jags' starting quarterback, some have their doubts about his viability as a franchise guy. If the Jaguars were to sign Hill, they would get a veteran backup for Minshew who could make some plays as a receiver. You might think that there is no way Jacksonville gives up one of their first-round picks for Hill, but this team traded away both AJ Bouye and Calais Campbell in exchange for two Day 3 picks, so Dave Caldwell hasn't exactly been batting 1.000 of late.
1. Las Vegas Raiders
The Raiders might look more stable than they did in years past, as Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden claim that they are happy with Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota as their quarterbacks, but if any head coach in the league wants to take a chance on a guy like Hill for his uniqueness, it would be a guy like Gruden, who recently tried to jump through hoops for Antonio Brown for a month. Gruden will never pass up a chance to grab headlines, and Hill would certainly do that.
