Josh Hill (born May 21, 1990) is an American football tight end for the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for Idaho State. He was signed by the Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2013.[1]

Professional career

Hill signed with the New Orleans Saints after not being selected in the 2013 NFL draft.[2]

After starting tight end, Jimmy Graham, was traded to the Seattle Seahawks in the 2015 offseason, the Saints offense relied heavily on both Hill and Benjamin Watson.[3]

Hill became a restricted free agent during the 2016 offseason. On March 22, 2016, he signed an offer sheet to join the Chicago Bears.[4] Three days later the Saints matched the Bears' offer sheet and re-signed Hill.[5]

In Week 13 of the 2016 season against the Detroit Lions, Hill broke his fibula and was placed on injured reserve on December 9, 2016.[6] He played in nine games with eight starts finishing the season with 15 receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown.

On December 31, 2018, Hill signed a three-year, $8.85 million contract extension with the Saints through the 2021 season.[7]
