Shaun Hill QB STL 4 Months

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.

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 simply speculating. The Rams remain interested in Hill as Sam Bradford's backup.

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.

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.

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.
