STEPHEN HILL RUMORS & GOSSIP
A person familiar with the deal says the New York Jets and second-round draft pick Stephen Hill have agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth just under $5 million.

With the 43rd overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Jets select Georgia Tech WR Stephen Hill. Hill was Georgia Tech's big play pass catching threat in their option offense and the home run hitting receiver opponents were forced to keep track of.

The Patriots have a good, reliable group of wide receivers as they gear up for the 2012 season, but age is a factor.

Georgia Tech wideout Stephen Hill, who had perhaps the most impressive scouting combine of any wide receiver in February, will visit with the 49ers this weekend, The Bee has learned.

As a wide receiver playing in a triple-option offense, Georgia Techs Stephen Hill did not have reams of film for scouts to scour when he made himself eligible for the NFL Draft.

That meant when it came to his evaluation...
