The New Orleans Saints continue to look for ways to get Taysom Hill on the field. 

Hill, the No. 3 quarterback and a developmental prospect as an undrafted free agent out of BYU, has already established himself on special teams. 

Now, the Saints might be looking for ways to get him on the field offensively without taking Drew Brees off of it. Hill played one offensive snap as a wide receiver on a screen against Atlanta, and Saints coach Sean Payton said the role might be expanded in the future.

"Just looking at different situations," Payton said. "We'll continue to do that."

Hill, who has the kind of running ability that could be a weapon as a pass-catcher, offers a wide range of possibilities.

"When you can move a quarterback around, that can become challenging, both defensively and in the kicking game," Payton said.
