Carolina Panthers bring Stephen Hill in for a look

The Carolina Panthers have brought in former Jet wide receiver
Stephen Hill for a tryout. Hill was released by the Jets despite being a second
round draft pick two seasons ago. Hill has caught 45 passes and four touchdown receptions
in his two seasons in
Considered a bust Stephen Hill was released by the Jets but his physical ability warrants a team like the Carolina Panthers to take a look at him. Hill is 6 ft 4 inches tall and weights around 215 pounds. At the combine in 2012 Stephen Hill ran a 4.36 40 yard dash. Hill has two NFL seasons under his belt but is younger than Kelvin Benjamin!
Upon Hill's release his agent blasted the Jets and blamed their sorry quarterback situation with Hill's lack of success. He has a good point because the Jets quarterbacking has been pretty sorry over the last two years.
Most tall wide receivers that can fly get at least a second chance in the NFL. You can bet Hill will be motivated to show the Carolina Panthers what he can do. Hill won't be any help in the return game but possibly he could help out on coverage teams for the Panthers.
But frankly I see the possibility of Stephen Hill being a
number 3 or 4 wide receiver for the Carolina Panthers if he gets signed and
picks up the offense quickly.
