Lions sign Jordan Hill

Good player, when healthy, which ain't often.

Reminds me of the Walker signing. All potential. Stay healthy, kid.

I don't want to be a buzz kill, even though I understand he's an addition that if he doesn't work out then no loss, but how do we know he's a good player if he largely doesn't play? Know nothing about him myself..

He's highly ranked against the run and pass... when he plays.. which seems to be about 50% of the time or less.

When he's on the field, he's pretty darned good. He's not on the field very much.
