Shaun Hill the 49ers Starting QB?

About ten days ago, the Mercury News had some quotes from Alex Smith indicating there will be a competition for the starting job, and today the 49ers released Trent Dilfer. J.T. O'Sullivan, the other QB on the roster, is a career backup who is familiar with Martz' system from their stints together on other teams. Hill also signed a three-year deal in February that could be worth up to about $2 Million/year, if he's the starter. There have been lots of rumors about how Hill will fit Martz' system better, but I'm just holding my breath. The odds of an undrafted QB taking over for the #1 overall pick are never particularly high, no matter how much talk there is about it before camp opens. We can hope...
