Shaun Hill, a 14-year veteran, is expected to back up Teddy Bridgewater this season for the Vikings. If anything were to happen to Bridgewater, Hill would garner a little bit of attention off waivers. Until calamity strikes the Vikings' young quarterback, expect the elder passer to remain on Fantasy waivers.
Hill stepped in for concussed starter Teddy Bridgewater in Sunday's game against the Rams, completing 2-of-6 passes for 15 yards. The veteran saw his first action of the season Sunday, and actually led the Vikings to a game-winning field goal in overtime. It is unclear when Bridgewater will be able to return, but Hill is seemingly in line to start any games he misses. The Vikings will face off with a middling Raiders defense in Week 10, but Hill doesn't possess much fantasy potential, even in a starting role.
The Vikings made the signings of quarterback Shaun Hill and long snapper Cullen Loeffler on Wednesday, per the team's official website. Hill, 35, played in Minnesota from 2002-05. He will be reunited with offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who he worked with in 2006 with the 49ers. Loeffler's entire 11-year career has been with Minnesota.

He threw for 1,657 yards with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2014. He also played in Minnesota from 2002-05. He will be reunited with offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who he worked with in 2006 with the 49ers.
The Vikings made an offer to 35-year-old free agent quarterback Shaun Hill, who started eight games for the Rams last season, reports ESPN.com.

The Vikings have reached out to veteran quarterback Shaun Hill in order to replace the recently departed Matt Cassel, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
