New York Jets’ Free Agent Rumors: QB Shaun Hill


Before the night is over, there was one more rumor I wanted to bring to your attention that came out via Twitter earlier today.

We know that one of the main goals of free agency for the Jets is to bring in a veteran quarterback. A report came out on Twitter earlier today that the Jets have shown interest in Lions’ quarterback, Shaun Hill.

Here’s a guy that is as veteran as veteran can be, entering his 13th season in the league. At 34,he is not a guy that the Jets would commit to long-term, but would serve to add experience to the quarterback room, as well as being able to start in a pinch if necessary.

In a career that has taken him from the Vikings, to the 49ers, to the Lions, Shaun Hill has started 26 games in his career. His career completion percentage is 61.9%. More importantly, he knows how to take care of the football, having thrown 41 touchdowns vs. 23 interceptions.

We will talk more about Shaun Hill tomorrow.
