Shaun Hill completed 18-of-33 passes for 236 yards in the Vikings' Week 1 win over the Titans.
Hill made a couple good throws to get the offense going in the second half, but the Titans did not respect the pass all game and the Vikings had trouble making them pay. While his placement was good, the ball seemed to float out of his hand and he lacked the zip to make tight window throws. Despite the win, it would be shocking if Hill was under center next week against the Packers. Sun, Sep 11, 2016 04:10:00 PM

Date:

Shaun Hill will start the Vikings' season opener against the Titans.

This was always expected, but it is now official. Sam Bradford is active and could see action if Hill is hurt or struggles. Bradford has a good shot to start Week 2.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Vikings players were informed Shaun Hill will start this week.

The Vikings haven't made anything official, but Hill was always the favorite to start. Sam Bradford is still learning the offense, and would limit Minnesota's playcalling. Bradford should take over for Hill in Week 2.

Coach Mike Zimmer said he won't name his Week 1 starting quarterback before Sunday.

"If it's [Sam] Bradford, it's Bradford," Zimmer said. "If it's Shaun [Hill], it's Shaun. We've got three more days of practice." Starting LG Alex Boone hinted it'll be Hill getting the nod Sunday against the Titans. No matter who gets the start, their main job will be handing the ball off to Adrian Peterson.

Vikings listed Shaun Hill as the starting quarterback on their unofficial depth chart for Week 1.

Sam Bradford is listed with the second-team. This could certainly change during the week, but the plan seems to be for Hill to start with Bradford ready to run a limited offense if needed. Bradford could take over the reins as early as Week 2.

Shaun Hill worked as the Vikings' starting quarterback in Monday's practice.

This is not surprising. Newly-acquired QB Sam Bradford will not be ready to play by Sunday, leaving Hill as the only reasonable option. Depending on how quickly Bradford can pick up the offense, he could be under center Week 2.
Mon, Sep 5, 2016 12:32:00 PM

According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Vikings' "tentative plan" is to start Shaun Hill in Week 1 at Tennessee.

The Star-Tribune reports newly acquired Sam Bradford "will be armed with a simplified version of the offense in case Hill is injured." Thereafter, Vikings coaches "will huddle" to determine whether Bradford can take over in Week 2. The Star-Trib's Mark Craig reports TEs coach Pat Shurmur -- Bradford's old OC -- "convinced the organization that Bradford had the intelligence and work ethic to learn Norv Turner's offense quickly." Saturday's trade cost the Vikings a 2017 first-round pick and a 2018 conditional pick that could become as high as the second round. GM Rick Spielman had better hope Shurmur gets this one right.

Profootballtalk reports Shaun Hill could start Week 1 against the Titans.

With less than a week to learn the playbook, Sam Bradford might not be ready for the season opener. The Vikings are likely trying to avoid another Josh Freeman disaster. Bradford should start no later than Week 2 against the Packers.

Appearing on NFL Network's Good Morning Football, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune's Matt Vensel reports the Vikings don't think they can "get by" with Shaun Hill for 16 games.

Vensel believes the Vikings will look outside the organization for another quarterback, though he does report the team "likes" Taylor Heinicke, but Heinicke is on the NFI list after tearing up his foot in an off-field incident. He's not expected to be able to practice for another three weeks. The Vikings were one of the teams linked to Nick Foles before he signed with the Chiefs. It's possible they could try to pry Josh McCown away from the Browns for a mid-rounder.

Shaun Hill will open the season as the Vikings' starting quarterback.

He should be grabbed in two-quarterback leagues, but nowhere else. 36 1/2 years old, Hill will spend much of his time under center executing handoffs to Adrian Peterson. Hill appeared in nine games (eight starts) with the 2014 Rams, completing 63.3 percent of his throws with an 8:7 TD-to-INT ratio and 7.2 YPA. The Vikings should be willing to take those rate stats and run with them if Hill can repeat. We wouldn't bet on Hill lasting 16 starts this year.
Tue, Aug 30, 2016 10:23:00 PM

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.
Mon, Mar 16, 2015 10:02:00 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.
Tue, Mar 10, 2015 04:24:00 PM

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.
Mon, Mar 9, 2015 02:35:00 PM

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.
