Shaun Hill open to return to Lions

MINNEAPOLIS -- Shaun Hill played two snaps this season. But the backup quarterback to Matthew Stafford has indicated he wouldn't necessarily mind returning to Detroit next season.

"I definitely wouldn't be opposed to coming back here," Hill said. "I just have to spend some time with my family and talk to them and see what's going to be best and who knows if even that's going to be an option.

"I hope it is. We'll see what happens."

Hill has spent the past four seasons in Detroit and is now an unrestricted free agent. The one-time starter with San Francisco has played in 34 career games, completing 591 of 954 passes for 6,381 yards, 41 touchdowns and 23 interceptions.

He has also played a mentor of sorts to Stafford as he has grown throughout his career. But after his first season with the Lions, when he played in 11 games due to Stafford's shoulder injury, he has seen action in just four games in three seasons with the team.
