Taylor reported last week heavier but in better shape — Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) April 15, 2014 Matthew Stafford isn't too different from fans when it comes to the draft process.

Detroit Lions' Matthew Stafford studied New Orleans Saints' film in preparation for offseason

The NFL's collective bargaining agreement prohibits players and coaches from having official interaction during the offseason, so Stafford took it upon himself to study some Saints film as the Lions prepare to transition to a new offensive scheme under Jim Caldwell and Joe Lombardi.

Detroit Lions - Shaun Hill will be tough to replace

Detroit Lions - Shaun Hill will be tough to replace

It’s difficult to register just how big the loss of Shaun Hill is to the Lions. Hill, Matthew Stafford’s backup the past four seasons, signed a one-year deal with the St. Louis Rams. He’ll be closer to his offseason home and he’ll have a good chance to learn the Rams system during OTAs since starter Sam Bradford is recovering from a torn ACL. He’ll reportedly earn $1.75 million with a chance for $2.25 million. The 34-year-old Hill is considered one of the NFL’s best backup quarterbacks. It’s not because he’s good at carrying a clipboard. Hill helped Stafford make the...

Prior to Detroit he spent four seasons in San Francisco and four with the Vikings. The Lions have only Stafford and Kellen Moore on the roster. Moore has not played a snap...

Shaun Hill agrees to deal with Rams, not Lions

Shaun Hill has decided to join the St. Louis Rams, leaving the Detroit Lions without a backup quarterback. It's been a rough day for the Detroit Lions when it comes to their backup quarterback situation. First, Luke McCown, who reportedly drew some interest from the Lions, agreed to a deal with the New Orleans Saints. And now, according to Jim Thomas, Shaun Hill has agreed to a deal with the St. Louis Rams. With Hill joining the Rams, the Lions are in a pretty tough spot when it comes to who is backing up Matthew Stafford. It's pretty clear at this point that they don't have enough...
