Shaun Hill Visits Rams; Drew Stanton Meets With Jets

Drew Stanton of the Detroit Lions is congratulated by Matthew Stafford and Shaun Hill.

Friday could turn out to be very interesting for the Detroit Lions' quarterback position. Right now, Shaun Hill is in St. Louis on a visit with the Rams and Drew Stanton is in New York meeting with the Jets. If things go really well on the two visits for Hill and Stanton, it's entirely possible that the Lions could be in need of two new quarterbacks by the afternoon.

According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Hill got to St. Louis on Thursday night and had dinner with officials from the Rams. His visit will continue on Friday, meaning there could be a resolution to his situation in the immediate future.

Stanton flew out for his visit with the Jets on Thursday morning. He is also going to continue his visit on Friday. His situation may not be resolved quite as quickly as Hill's, though. The Jets are reportedly scheduled to host Brady Quinn for a visit on Friday, which suggests that Stanton isn't the only quarterback they are considering. That is good news for the Lions, because if Hill does sign with St. Louis, chances are Detroit would want to bring back Stanton as the backup.

If both Hill and Stanton sign with the teams they are visiting, the Lions will need to find a new backup and a new third-string quarterback this offseason. David Garrard has already been mentioned as a possible replacement for the backup job, but it's too early to tell how things will develop. One thing is for sure: Dan Orlovsky will not be returning to Detroit, as he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday.
