Predicting the Saints 2020 quarterbacks

Some of the CSC staff predicts the quarterbacks on the Saints roster for the 2020 season.

Does Drew Brees retire? Can the New Orleans Saints re-sign Teddy Bridgewater? What about Taysom Hill? Would Jameis Winston or Cam Newton make sense in New Orleans?

Granted that last one might be a little ridiculous, but there are plenty of questions surrounding the quarterback position for the Saints in 2020. Some of the staff here at Canal Street Chronicles have given their prediction on who they think will be on the Saints roster for 2020 at quarterback.


Drew Brees, Taysom Hill, and Marcus Mariota. I’ll predict the Saints stick an early round tender on Taysom and teams are afraid to match. Teddy takes the money with a chance to become a Week 1 starter in 2020 for a different team, and the Saints opt to now make Marcus Mariota the highest-paid backup QB in the league.

Andrew Bell:

Brees, Taysom and Josh Rosen. Brees comes back and they place a first round tender on Taysom, then trade a late round pick for Rosen after the Miami Dolphins draft Tua.

Brenden Ertle:

Drew Brees, Taysom Hill, and they reunite with FA Chase Daniel on their price. So many quarterbacks are available this offseason, I can see Chase not have a huge market.


The Saints roll into the 2020 season with Brees, Mariota, and Taysom listed at quarterback. Mariota and Brees will both be on one-year deals, with the Saints likely to look at drafting a quarterback in 2021.


Brees. Taysom.

Teddy gone.

Chase Daniels returns.

John Butler:

With the apparent absence of fan-favorite Teddy Bridgewater, the Saints will have hole on their roster. They’ll start the 2020 season with Drew Brees at the helm. Taysom Hill will move his way into the number two slot, leaving a vacancy at QB3. New Orleans will get past their first pick in the 2020 NFL draft, see an undervalued Jordan Love (Utah State) on the board and trade into the second round to get him.


I predict Drew hangs it up and it’s Teddy and Taysom. They take a later round flyer on a QB in the draft. Unless someone makes an offer to Taysom they can’t match, then with the pick they would get they’re in a position to trade up in the draft. I’d have to get back with you for picks as my notes are at home.
