Lions QB Stafford welcomes Shaun Hill

QB Matthew Stafford, who battled and beat out Daunte Culpepper for the starting role last season, is pleased to have veteran QB Shaun Hill join the Lions following a trade from the 49ers.

“I’m excited about it. I think he’s started 16 games in his career, so he’s got some starting experience. But, at the same time, I think he’s going to be a huge help for our team and a huge help for me,’’ Stafford said. “He’s a smart guy and knows Coach (Scott) Linehan’s offense.’’

Hill and Linehan worked together from 2002-2004 while with the Minnesota Vikings.

This year there will be no quarterback controversy. Stafford is No. 1.
