NFL Free Agency: Shaun Hill Visits Rams On Thursday

Still waiting for a decision from defensive tackle Jason Jones, the St. Louis Rams will continue their work in free agency with the search for a backup quarterback. Visiting Rams Park on Thursday is Detroit Lions free agent quarterback Shaun Hill, according to the Post Dispatch.

Hill, 32, has made a living as a backup quarterback for years. He was signed by the Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 2002, but he never saw any playing time until 2005. Detroit signed him in 2010, and he played extensively in place of an injured Matt Stafford.

Hill started 10 games in 2010, completing 257 of 416 passes for 2,686 yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Not a guy that promises to light the world on fire with excitement, Hill would at least be a solid, proven backup quarterback. Given Bradford's injury history, the Rams need a known commodity backing him up this year.

The Rams were interested in Jason Campbell, but the Bears snapped him off the wire with a lucrative offer.
