Advocate staff photo by MATTHEW HINTON--New Orleans Saints running back Travaris Cadet runs in a for touchdown as New Orleans Saints tight end Josh Hill (89) celebrates behind him against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Superdome in New Orleans, La. Sunday, Dec. 27, 2015.


Josh Hill continues to get attention from other teams.

A restricted free agent, Hill visited with the Chicago Bears on Monday, according to a source. This comes after the tight end visited the New York Jets last week.

The Saints submitted a qualifying offer to Hill last month worth $1.67 million. If he were to sign an offer sheet with another team, New Orleans would have the right of first refusal. However, if he were to leave, the saints would receive no compensation.

Hill caught 16 passes for 120 yards last season.

If he remains with the Saints, he’ll be behind Coby Fleener and Michael Hoomanawanui on the depth chart.

Hill does not currently have any other visits scheduled.

ESPN first reported his visit with the Bears.
