NFL Free Agency 2013: Sammie Lee Hill to visit Titans

Free agent DT Sammie Hill to visit the Titans tomorrow.

Evan Silva linked the Titans and DT Sammie Lee Hill earlier today, and now Jim Wyatt says that Hill will be in for a visit tomorrow. Here is what Sean Yuille of Pride of Detroit had to say about the former Lions DT:

Hill was actually forced into starting as a rookie out of Stillman because the Lions were lacking both talent and depth at defensive tackle. A year later, he was reduced to simply being a rotational player after the Lions added Ndamukong Suh and Corey Williams. The Lions then added Nick Fairley the next season, but Hill remained a part of the rotation and even filled in as a starter for three games. He also started three games last season.

Hill has shown that he is a valuable depth player at defensive tackle. He can start if called upon and do an admirable job, and he can also be a solid rotational player. He's not going to wow you as a dominant player by any means, but he has done a good job in the role of backup/occasional starter for the Lions. He's probably ready to become a starter on a more full-time basis, but that obviously won't happen in Detroit.
