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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Mar 4, 2012 06:35:00 AM

The Lions have informed free agent Shaun Hill that they want to re-sign him for 2012, and the feeling is mutual.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Hill "might even take a slight discount" because he wants to stay with the organization. Hill does not appear to be interested in pursuing starting opportunities on the open market. The 32-year-old started ten games for Detroit in 2010, posting a 16:12 TD-to-INT ratio.

Impending free agent QB Shaun Hill would like to return to the Lions, but the two sides have yet to talk contract.

Turning 32 next week, this could be Hill's last opportunity to compete for a starting job on the open market. "I told myself I would decide that after this year," said Hill. "I haven't put any thought into it."

Shaun Hill was taking the first-team reps at quarterback in Wednesday's practice.

Matthew Stafford was stretching, jogging and doing some light throwing. However, Hill and Drew Stanton were running the team during skeleton drills. It certainly doesn't rule Stafford out for Sunday, but he's very questionable. Owners need to roster Hill, who averaged 259.8 yards passing and 1.6 touchdowns per game in 10 starts last season.
