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...

The Rams will more than likely draft a QB

The Rams will more than likely draft a QB

The Rams have 12 picks in the NFL Draft and one of them will more than likely be a quarterback. A quarterback is the most important football player on a football team, but his backup quarterback may be the most interesting. If a backup quarterback plays well in a game and the starter plays worse than the backup did, you will hear the "replace him talks," or if your team's quarterback is good, you can brag about having the best backup in the league. So it's not a shock that fans are curious about who will be the St. Louis Rams backup quarterback. They just signed veteran backup Shaun Hill...

Lions rumors: Could Dan Orlovsky replace Shaun Hill as backup QB?

Lions rumors: Could Dan Orlovsky replace Shaun Hill as backup QB?

Might the Detroit Lions bring back Dan Orlovsky as their backup quarterback? The Detroit Lions are still in need of a backup quarterback with both Shaun Hill and Luke McCown landing elsewhere. On Wednesday, Hill agreed to a deal with the St. Louis Rams, while McCown decided to re-sign with the New Orleans Saints. At this point, there aren't exactly a ton of attractive options left on the free-agent market when it comes to the quarterback position. Case in point: Dan Orlovsky may be the next target in the Lions' search for a backup quarterback. The Free Press' Dave Birkett reports that the...

Hill has appeared in just four games over the last three seasons.
