Contract Notes

Taysom Hill signed a two year, $21 million contract with the Saints on April 27, 2020. Hill received $17.439 million in guarantees including an $8 million signing bonus. Hill was a restricted free agent at the time of signing. This contract would be the equivalent of a one year $16.359 million extension.

Hill restructured his contract on March 14, 2021 converting $9.686 million of his 2021 salary into a signing bonus and adding for voidable years for cap purposes. The move creates $8.9 million in cap space for the Saints and adds that much dead money in 2021. Initial reports called these void years an extension so we are waiting on those details as they may have a bearing on the way the dead money spreads.
