As the story said, this is curious to say the least. Obviously these depth charts this time of year don't mean a whole lot. The team could be trying to send a message or simply reward Hill for good play. It wasn't all that long ago (2014) the very same Saints caused a lot of stink by putting Pierre Thomas as the team's RB3 behind Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson.
