SALT LAKE CITY – After putting his name in the NFL record books two weeks ago, Saints QB Taysom Hill had his jersey set up in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Hill isn’t the first player with local ties to receive that honor this season. Colts kicker Matt Gay and Rams wide receiver Puka Nacua also had their jerseys set up in Canton, Ohio this year.

Against the Chicago Bears in week nine, Hill became the first NFL player to score 10 or more touchdowns in rushing, passing, and receiving since Frank Gifford hit the mark in 1957.
Gifford played for the New York Giants from 1952-60, 1962-64. He finished his career with 14 passing touchdowns, 34 rushing touchdowns, and 43 receiving touchdowns. He hit the mark of 10 touchdowns in all three categories during the 1957 season.
