METAIRIE, La. – Training Camps can become a grind in the NFL with how long camp runs.  New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees tries to break up the non-stop grind at Saints Training Camp with Quarterback Challenge minigames.

Already in camp, the Saints QB’s have participated in a Mario Kart style challenge, Gatorade bottle bash, and another challenge with NBA rookie Zion Williamson from the New Orleans Pelicans.

Former BYU quarterback Taysom Hill is the do-it-all athlete that the NFL craves, but Hill’s primary position with the Saints is at quarterback.

On Thursday, Hill defeated Drew Brees and fellow Saints backup QB Teddy Bridgewater in the latest QB challenge hosted by Brees.

This installment of the Saints QB Challenge was “Whac-A-QB!”  Taysom “whacked” three of the targets in his attempts.  Drew Brees surprisingly posted a score of zero along with Teddy Bridgewater.

The Saints first preseason game is next Friday, August 9th, in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome against the Minnesota Vikings.
