Shaun Hill 'Excited About Being Back' With Lions

Before he re-signed with the Detroit Lions for two more years, quarterback Shaun Hill took a visit with the St. Louis Rams. Much like Drew Stanton, Hill visited another team in order to see what else was out there. Unlike Stanton, Hill decided that his best option was staying with his current team. What Hill saw in St. Louis didn't sway him from his initial feeling of wanting to stay with the Lions, so he signed a new two-year deal.

"It would have taken a lot to leave Detroit," he said in a phone interview Monday. "That's where I wanted to be. But at the same time, I had to check it out and look what was out there."

Hill is "very excited to be back" and is glad that he will be playing for a team that is a contender. What's more, he is happy to be in a "place where there are a lot of great things going on right now."

That statement alone shows what a shift in culture there has been with this franchise. Just a few years ago, players couldn't wait to depart the Lions once their contract was up. Now, as we've seen in the last week, players are thrilled to be staying with the team because there is excitement about what is being built.
