POLL: How do you feel about the Josh Hill extension?

He’ll be backing up the position for the next three years.

NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

After Benjamin Watson announced his retirement following the 2018 NFL season, the New Orleans Saints acted quickly to extend fellow tight end Josh Hill for the next three seasons:

Contrary to what some on the Twitter-verse have been saying, this is not a signing that would otherwise prevent the Saints from attempting to address the tight end position via the 2019 NFL Draft or upcoming free agency. Hill, a capable pass-catcher, is a valuable player both in the blocking game and on special teams.

So the Saints have effectively agreed to pay almost $9 million to Josh Hill to be a backup tight end for the foreseeable future. What are your thoughts? Vote in the poll. Explain in the comments. Send me presents.
