Let the QB competition in San Fran begin. The Niners have come to terms on a three-year deal for QB Shaun Hill, who came on scene late in the season for San Fran and won them two games before going down with an injury. The Santa Rosa Press Democrat is reporting that the deal is worth about $2 million annually with incentives that will up the value if Hill starts.
Hill will battle former number one draft pick Alex Smith for the QB spot in mini-camps and training camp this year. He showed enough to earn the contract, and could have been a free agent come March. As for Smith, word is that he will get evey chance to start and to show his stuff for new offensive coordinator Mike Martz. The Democrat states that a healthy Smith may have a slight edge early in the battle to start for the Niners.
