Lions' QB Shaun Hill knows his role
Quietly, veteran quarterback Shaun Hill has gone to work, learning the Lions’ offense.
During the OTAs, he’s made some nice passes. Not always pretty, but quite often complete.
It’s a totally different situation than the Lions had with Daunte Culpepper who was fighting for the starting job with Matthew Stafford last year.
Hill, who came to the Lions via a trade from San Francisco, knows his role and is fine with it. He just works hard. And because he’s been in the league for eight seasons, he can provide advice to Stafford.
“(Shaun has) worked his way up from the bottom of the league. I’ve got a lot of respect for guys who have done that. It doesn’t always look pretty. ... He finds a way to get it done and this is a results- oriented business. Nothing flaps him,’’ coach Jim Schwartz said.
