Latest NewsPanthers | Stephen Hill signed to practice squad (Tue Sep 2, 05:08 PM) - The Carolina Panthers signed free-agent WR Stephen Hill (Jets) to their practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 2. Our View: Hill just needed a fresh start after flaming out with the Jets. He has a fantastic size/speed combination, but injuries and bad hands have held him back as a pro. The Panthers are incredibly thin at the wide receiver position, so this signing is good for them too.
link to story Panthers | Stephen Hill to work out (Mon Sep 1, 12:36 PM) - Free-agent WR Stephen Hill (Jets) is scheduled to work out for the Carolina Panthers Monday, Sept. 1, according to a source. Our View: The Panthers are desperate for wide receiver help. Even though Hill was a bust with the Jets, he's still only 23-years old and has a great size/speed combination. He'll get a fresh start somewhere else, probably in some place like Carolina or Cleveland.
link to story Jets | Team unfair to Stephen Hill? (Sat Aug 30, 08:44 PM) - Free-agent WR Stephen Hill's agent, Alan Herman, said that Hill never had a chance to succeed with the New York Jets. 'He didn't have a chance that first year with that whole Tim Tebow-Mark Sanchez fiasco,' Herman said. 'His second year, Geno Smith was learning how to play quarterback. So they never threw the ball deep because they wanted to simplify things for Geno.' Our View: This may have an element of truth, but Herman comes off as a bit of a whiner here. Demaryius Thomas worked with Tebow too, and he's turned into a superstar in the NFL. Herman makes no mention of Hill's inability to stay healthy or consistently catch the football.
link to story Browns | Connection with Stephen Hill? (Sat Aug 30, 08:30 PM) - Free-agent WR Stephen Hill's agent believes the Cleveland Browns will put in a claim for Hill. 'I would think the Browns would put in a claim,' the agent said. '(Head coach Mike) Pettine knows him and they need receivers and Stephen can stretch the field.' Our View: The Browns need all the help they can get at the wide receiver position. Adding Hill would make a lot of sense. If healthy, he could play the Josh Gordon-like role for the offense. Hill needs a fresh start, and still has a nice size/speed combination.
link to story NFL | Stephen Hill receiving interest (Sat Aug 30, 01:45 PM) - Free-agent WR Stephen Hill (Jets) has received interest from three teams including a team in the AFC North, according to a source. Our View: Of course he is. Hill is only 23-years old, and he's got an intriguing size/speed combination. Following the footsteps of Calvin Johnson and Demaryius Thomas at Georgia Tech, Hill has struggled with drops and knee issues as a pro.
