The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Rams "pushed hard" to re-sign Shaun Hill before he headed to the Vikings.
That was before the Rams acquired Case Keenum. In theory, the Rams addressed quarterback more aggressively than they did last year, but their top three of Nick Foles, Austin Davis and Keenum is extremely similar to last year's trio of Sam Bradford, Hill and Davis. The position is still a trouble spot. Mar 16 - 10:02 AM

Vikings signed QB Shaun Hill to a two-year, $6.5 million contract.

After trading Matt Cassel to the Bills, the Vikings were in need of a backup for Teddy Bridgewater. Hill is a fine one, as he completed 63.3 percent of his passes and went 3-5 as a starter for the Rams last year.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Cowboys and Raiders are "showing interest" in free agent Shaun Hill.

The Bucs and Vikings have also been linked to Hill. Hill kept his head above water for the Rams last season, but shouldn't be the subject of any backup bidding wars. He would be an improvement on both Brandon Weeden and Matt Schaub.

The Vikings have reportedly made an offer to free agent QB Shaun Hill.

After trading Matt Cassel to the Bills, the Vikings are in the market for Teddy Bridgewater's backup. Hill spent 2006 with current Minnesota OC Norv Turner in San Francisco.

The Buccaneers are one of five teams reportedly interested in free agent QB Shaun Hill.

Old and often injured, Hill finished last season in St. Louis with eight touchdowns and 63.3 completion rate. Hill would back up whomever the Bucs choose with the No. 1 pick, quite possibly Florida State QB Jameis Winston. If the Buccaneers sign Hill, it could mean the end of Mike Glennon's tenure in Tampa Bay.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the Vikings are targeting free agent Shaun Hill.

Hill would replace Matt Cassel as Teddy Bridgewater's backup. He played under OC Norv Turner with the 49ers in 2006 and would give the Vikings a veteran sounding board for Bridgewater. Free agent Tarvaris Jackson has also expressed interest in returning to Minnesota.

The Rams plan to meet with the agent for Shaun Hill at the Combine this week.

Hill made eight starts filling in for Sam Bradford last year. He was benched in favor of Austin Davis before finishing out the final seven games. The Rams need to do better than Hill as their backup behind injury-prone Bradford.

Shaun Hill completed 26-of-37 passes for 243 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Rams' 20-6, Week 17 loss to the Seahawks.

Hill's two interceptions were brutal. His first one was on a failed screen, while the second bounced off Lance Kendricks' hands and was returned by Bruce Irvin for a touchdown. Hill ends the season having completed 63.3 percent of his passes for 1,657 yards and an 8:7 TD:INT ratio. After Sam Bradford tore his ACL in the preseason, Hill got the nod in Week 1 but was pulled at halftime due to ineffectiveness and injury. Austin Davis started the next eight games before Hill got the job back in Week 11. He managed the game relatively well, but is nothing more than a quality backup at this stage of his career. Turning 35 next week, Hill will likely have to settle for one-year contracts the rest of his career if he chooses to continue to play. He’ll be a free agent in March.

Shaun Hill completed 24-of-32 passes for 290 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Giants.

Hill saved his fantasy day by throwing two touchdowns in the final 16 minutes of a blowout. But in reality, his deep ball fluttered and he had two more interceptions called back by penalty. Hill and the Rams wrap their season at Seattle in Week 17.

Shaun Hill completed 20-of-39 passes for 229 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in St. Louis' 12-6, Week 15 loss to the Cardinals.

Hill's pick came on a hail mary as time expired. Hill wasn't quite as bad as the numbers indicate, but started the second half off with five straight 3-and-outs. He finally got the offense moving in the fourth quarter, but the Rams' best drive of the evening stalled at the Cardinals' one-yard line. Hill isn't afraid to attempt stick 'em throws into tight spaces, but has a severe lack of arm strength beyond the 15-20 yard range. The Rams need to do better at their No. 2 spot if they stick with the brittle Sam Bradford for 2015.

Shaun Hill completed 16-of-22 passes for 213 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Rams' 24-0, Week 14 win over the Redskins.

The Rams coasted to this victory, and it would have been worse had K Greg Zuerlein not missed an extra point, 28-yard field goal, and 38-yard field goal. Hill, in typical game manager fashion, found his open receivers for easy gains. Nothing came easier than his two touchdown passes, both of which went to Jared Cook. Cook ran free down the seam for a 35-yard score before he was left wide open in the end zone for a one-yard score in the third quarter. The biggest thing from Hill is he's not turning the ball over. He won't be a recommended play on Thursday night against Arizona.

Shaun Hill completed 13-of-22 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams' Week 13 blowout win over the Raiders.

Hill was highly efficient and executed a two-yard quarterback keeper for a touchdown in the first quarter, giving St. Louis a 14-0 lead. The Rams surprisingly attacked the Raiders with a high-volume passing game before taking the air out of the ball following a 21-0 first-quarter advantage. Hill put St. Louis ahead 35-0 with a four-yard touchdown toss to FB Cory Harkey in the second quarter. With St. Louis up 45-0 at the eight-minute mark in the fourth quarter, Hill was rested in favor of Austin Davis. Hill will be in the two-quarterback-league conversation when the Rams visit the Redskins in Week 14.

Shaun Hill completed just 18-of-35 passes for 198 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Rams' 27-24, Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

Hill was picked off on his first and last throws of the game, with a fumble-six sandwiched in between, channeling his inner Austin Davis. The final interception was an absolute back-breaker, as the Rams were set up inside the Chargers' five-yard line with a chance to win the game and at least kick a field goal to head to overtime. OC Brian Schottenheimer mind-numbingly dialed up a pass, and Hill threw it right to Marcus Gilchrist to seal the loss. Hill was bad for most of the day, though. He'll be bottom-barrel QB2 against the Raiders in Week 13.

Shaun Hill completed 20-of-29 passes for 220 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions in the Rams' 22-7, Week 11 victory over the Broncos.

Making his first start since Week 1, Hill came in and didn't turn the ball over. That's all the Rams wanted from him after Austin Davis proved to be a interception and fumble machine in his eight starts. Hill also displayed a strong arm, though he was a bit inaccurate out of the gate. His score went to Kenny Britt, who roasted Bradley Roby, from 63 yards out. Hill could have had a second 73-yard TD to Britt, but Hill threw the ball a bit behind Britt. Hill will be a back-end QB2 next week in San Diego.

The Rams will start Shaun Hill at quarterback in Week 11 against the Broncos.

Earlier this week, coach Jeff Fisher said Austin Davis would remain the starter vs. Denver. He's apparently changed his mind after watching tape of Davis' fourth-quarter meltdown against the Cardinals in Week 10 when he tossed an interception, pick-six, and lost a fumble-six on three consecutive possessions. Veteran Hill will be back under center after going 8-of-13 for 81 yards and one interception in the first half of Week 1 against the Vikings before heading the bench. Davis proved to be in over his head in recent weeks. Hill, like Davis, won't be a fantasy option. The Rams have the league's worst receiving corps.
