NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Saints tight end Josh Hill will remain with the organization after matching the offer sheet from the Chicago Bears.

The Saints originally tendered Hill at the lowest level of $1.67 million. The Bears signed him to an offer sheet which gave the Saints five days to match, and they've elected to do so.

Hill has 36 receptions, 340 yards and eight touchdowns in three seasons in New Orleans. He is also one of the team's top special teams performers.
