Stephen Hill WR NYJ 17 Days
Jets coach Rex Ryan believes Stephen Hill's development was "hindered" in 2013.
It's unclear what Ryan believes "hindered" Hill, but it's likely just his way of saying Hill stunk. Ryan's comments come one day after the New York Daily News reported the Jets were "skeptical" Hill could become a "reliable piece of the puzzle." Hill needs to show major signs of progress this summer to ensure his place on the 53-man roster.

According to the NY Daily News, the Jets' front office is "skeptical" third-year WR Stephen Hill can become a "reliable piece to the puzzle."
Hill wasn't drafted by current GM John Idzik, and has been the NFL's least efficient receiver over the past two seasons despite freakish size and speed. The Jets are also going to cut Santonio Holmes. Under OC Marty Mornhinweg, the Jets are running a West Coast offense for which Hill's skill set is arguably ill suited. It's possible he'll be placed on the trade block closer to the draft.

ESPN New York expects Stephen Hill's "scholarship" days to be over with the Jets.
Hill, the 43rd overall pick in the 2012 draft, has been a massive disappointment. He's going to have to earn his roster spot this summer. GM John Idzik didn't draft Hill, so his place on the roster is no longer a guarantee. Obviously quarterback issues haven't helped Hill, but he's been extremely injury- and mistake-prone as a pro. The Jets need to overhaul their receiving corps.

The Jets have never revealed the full extent of Hill's injury, but it's not believed to be major. Hill was placed on injured reserve two weeks ago. Hill underwent surgery for a torn right LCL last December, and had issues into training camp. Hill caught just one pass over his final four games this season.

Jets placed WR Stephen Hill on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.
Hill has been battling the knee injury off and on this season. He didn't play last week, and coach Rex Ryan hinted that the second-year receiver could be done for the year earlier in the week. Hill was a colossal disappointment as a sophomore, registering just 24 catches for 342 yards and one touchdown. His quarterback was part of the problem. Hill will look to up his game in 2014.
