Sammie Lee Hill has reached a 3-year deal with the #Titans. It's 3 years, $11.4M. $4M guaranteed. Lot of potential here.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 13, 2013
This has been the craziest 24 hour period for the Titans ever in free agency. As you can see above, they have officially agreed to terms with Sammie Lee Hill.
Hill got buried on the defensive tackle depth chart in Detroit behind guys like Suh and Fairley, but everything that I read about him seems to be exciting.
Hill has clearly been brought in to replace Sen'Derrick Marks, who is currently still without a team. Kuharsky said on the radio today that the Titans hope Hill will be able to fill the role they brought Shaun Smith in for- a big body in the middle that can eat up space and occupy blockers so that guys like Derrick Morgan, Kamerion Wimbley and Akeem Ayers don't have to face as many double teams.
