Shaun Hill Reiterates Desire To Return To Lions

The Detroit Lions have zero question marks surrounding who is the starting quarterback going into the offseason, but there is still some uncertainty at the position. Behind Matthew Stafford, it's unclear who will even be on the roster next season with both Shaun Hill and Drew Stanton set to become free agents. The Lions have had the luxury of having two solid backups the last couple years, but it's unknown if either or both will return in 2012.

One thing we do have a pretty good idea about right now is what Hill will do if he is offered a deal. Chances are he will re-sign with the team. He has said before that he hopes to stay in Detroit, and he made that clear again earlier in the week.

"There is a lot can happen," Hill said. "I would certainly like to be back here. My two years here, I’ve really enjoyed coming to work and the people I work with. This organization has been great and this locker room has been tremendous.

"I would like to be back and obviously I hope they want me back. It’s going to be hard to find a better fit for me than this one."

Hill did say that he would "look heavily" into a starting job if the right situation presented itself, but he basically said he would rather be a backup for the Lions than a starter in a situation where he is unhappy.
