Coach Jeff Fisher confirmed Sunday the Rams will move forward with Shaun Hill as their starting quarterback.
It's hard to tell what Hill has left because he's 34 and hasn't made a regular season start since 2010, but his career stats are actually better than Sam Bradford's across the board. "Shaun is our guy," said Fisher. "We have around our QB position as much talent as we’ve had since we’ve been here." Expect St. Louis to implement a team formula similar to last year's with Kellen Clemens at the helm. Zac Stacy averaged 22.2 carries a game over the final nine weeks. Aug 24 - 6:42 PM

With Sam Bradford (knee) lost for the season, Shaun Hill is the Rams' new starting quarterback.

Hill, 34, has made 26 career starts, though zero since 2010. He owns a lifetime 61.9 completion percentage, 6.7 YPA and 41:23 TD:INT ratio. His teams have gone 13-13 in his starts, earning him a reputation as one of the league's best backups. Be that as it may, Hill's age and lack of recent starts are reason to believe there will be a considerable amount of rust to knock off. The Rams should run the ball more than they did in 2013, when they were 17th in attempts. Hill is a bottom-barrel QB2 who can't yet be considered a viable streamer. He's backed up by third-year UDFA Austin Davis.

Coming on in relief of Sam Bradford (knee), Rams backup QB Shaun Hill completed 2-of-6 passes for 45 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Browns.

Hill played just 1.5 series, which could be a sign the Rams are afraid they'll need him for Week 1. Hill drove the Rams 78 yards for a field on his lone full drive. Hill has always been considered one of the league's better backups, but will be a bottom-barrel QB2 if forced into the lineup.
Aug 23 - 11:25 PM

Rams agreed to terms with QB Shaun Hill, formerly of the Lions, on a one-year contract.

Hill, 34, visited the Rams in free agency's opening week and was always expected to sign with St. Louis. He makes his offseason home just a couple hours from St. Louis. Hill has attempted just 16 passes the past three seasons but boasts a 13-13 career record and an 85.9 passer rating. He'll run the first-team offense for however long Sam Bradford (ACL) is sidelined this spring.
Mar 26 - 2:09 PM

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports free agent QB Shaun Hill underwent offseason foot surgery.

Hill, 34, also had foot surgery last offseason. It shouldn't affect his status for minicamp and training camp but might be an issue for OTAs, though we're speculating. The Rams remain interested in Hill as Sam Bradford's backup.
Mar 24 - 6:50 PM

Free agent Shaun Hill will visit the Rams on Monday.

Hill would add an experienced, veteran presence behind injury-prone starter Sam Bradford. Hill, 34, has also been reported to be on the Jets' radar.
Mar 16 - 5:20 PM

The New York Daily News reports the Jets have expressed interest in free agent QB Shaun Hill.

Hill hasn't started a game since 2010, but would provide the Jets with a veteran backup to push Geno Smith in training camp. With Matt Cassel re-signed, Hill is Rotoworld's No. 4 free agent quarterback.
Mar 8 - 6:45 PM

Lions backup QB Shaun Hill is recovering from a minor offseason foot surgery.

Hill had surgery to repair a "nagging" injury. He expects to participate in some portions of OTAs and should be 100 percent by training camp. Hill, now 33 years old, is entering a contract season. As Matthew Stafford stayed healthy in 2012, Hill came off the bench for just one appearance, completing 10-of-13 passes for 172 yards and two touchdowns in a September loss to Tennessee.

Shaun Hill is fully expected to be Matthew Stafford's backup once again this season.

Stafford has played in all 16 games in each of the last two seasons. But when Hill started 10 times in 2010, he averaged 259.8 yards per game and threw 16 touchdowns. He's well worth the $2.4M in base salary the Lions will pay him in the final year of his contract.

In 10 2010 starts for the Lions, Shaun Hill averaged 259.8 yards per game and threw 16 touchdown passes.

Hill proved he's one of the better backups around Sunday when he went 10-of-13 for 172 yards with two touchdowns in relief of Matthew Stafford (leg). As we wait for the results of Stafford's MRI, Hill is a must-add for owners. He's been in the offense for three years, has starting experience and the Lions will stick to their pass-first scheme under Hill.

Lions re-signed QB Shaun Hill to a two-year contract.

Hill visited with the Rams on Thursday, but ultimately decided to return as Matthew Stafford's backup for the third consecutive season. Financial terms are not immediately available. Hill is unlikely to match the $3.5 million Jason Campbell received from Chicago.
Sat, Mar 17, 2012 06:53:00 PM

The Lions still hope to re-sign free agent Shaun Hill.

Matthew Stafford's backup the past two seasons is peddling his wares on the open market, but has only generated one reported visit. With third-stringer Drew Stanton scooped up by the Jets, it's unlikely Detroit will let Hill get away.
Sat, Mar 17, 2012 09:18:00 AM

Free agent Shaun Hill will visit the Rams on Thursday.

After striking out on a pre-free agency deal with the Lions, Hill will now do his due diligence on the open market. He should land a deal that pays him like one of the league's top backups, but is unlikely to match the $3.5 million Jason Campbell wrested from the Bears Tuesday.
Tue, Mar 13, 2012 11:29:00 PM

Free agent Shaun Hill is planning to test the open market.

Re-signing Hill was a priority for the Lions, but the sides remained "far enough apart on a new deal" late Monday that Hill has decided to gauge his value on the open market. A career backup, Hill performed well in the absence of Matthew Stafford in 2010, completing 257-of-416 passes for 2,686 yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in parts of 11 games. He could land a deal that pays him like one of the league's upper echelon backups. If Hill walks, the Lions will likely focus on re-signing fellow free agent QB Drew Stanton.
Tue, Mar 13, 2012 08:32:00 AM

The Lions have reportedly made re-signing free agent QB Shaun Hill a priority.

The Lions realize Hill will draw interest from "at least" three teams, including one that would perhaps offer a chance to compete for a starting job, according to the National Football Post. While Hill's preference is to stay in Detroit, the Lions are going to have to offer him a raise in the neighborhood of $3+ million per year.
