Bears in talks with SIU QB Hill

SHARE Bears in talks with SIU QB Hill

Southern Illinois quarterback Nick Hill is one of the possibilities for the Bears.

He has several teams interested in him right now. It would seem to be a good fit for any quarterback as the Bears have only Rex Grossman and Kyle Orton on the roster.

Hopefully we’ll know soon who the team goes with in free agency now that the draft is complete.

Hill made big strides with a strong senior season and has big intangibles. He doesn’t have the strongest arm but the left-hander has some upside. Hill came in for a pre-draft visit and moves well in the pocket. Stay tuned.
