Jason LaCanfora: Several notable veterans could be released


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) The release of Bengals former featured back BenJarvus Green-Ellis is not the only significant move that will be made by NFL teams involving veterans, per CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

La Canfora is speculating that the Browns could part with Nate Burleson and that the Jets might let go of fellow wide receiver Stephen Hill. The former has been limited by injury in the preseason while the latter has proven disappointing throughout his young career.

Also on the bubble, according to La Canfora, is Patriots backup quarterback Ryan Mallett, though he is likely to stay because of the team's possible decision to keep three players at that position.


Jets tried to trade Stephen Hill, found no takers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) The Jets tried to trade third-year wideout Stephen Hill over the summer but found no takers, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hill has shown "occasional flashes" during the preseason but "continues to struggle with route running, drops and just plain catching the ball with his hands instead of his body," according to The Star-Ledger.

Jets not ready to give up on unproductive Stephen Hill


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Despite the fact that Stephen Hill has just one reception in the first two preseason games, Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg has not given up on the 2012 second-round pick.

"I was pleased with his progress [last year] up until he got nicked and that he got nicked again," Mornhinweg told the New York Post. "This year he was even more impressive in the offseason and through training camp, with a few exceptions. There were a couple days there. So he's coming along. And in many cases, this is what happens, at all positions, but especially at the receiver position, that third year they make a pretty good jump. That's what we're looking for there."

The Jets are seeking a receiver to start opposite Eric Decker. David Nelson is another possibility, but his potential is not considered as strong as that of Hill, whose production fell off the table after a strong start in 2013.


Jets OC: Stephen Hill has 'taken a huge jump'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said receiver Stephen Hill has been "outstanding" in training camp, adding Hill has "taken a huge jump," reports the New York Daily News. It's the latest positive feedback on Hill, who's been a major disappointment with 45 catches through two seasons.

Coach: Stephen Hill 'healthy and confident' unlike last year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Jets receivers coach Sanjay Lal notices a major difference with Stephen Hill as he enters his third year in the NFL.

"Healthy and confident," Lal told The Star-Ledger. "That’s the biggest thing. I think he’s believing, and believing in himself – and it’s starting to show."

Hill struggled with knee injuries, inconsistency and dropped passes his first two seasons.

"It’s been the injuries that have hindered it and kind of somewhat made it harder than it could have been," Lal said. "He’s taken the coaching the whole time. Now, he’s able to do it physically, so it’s just kind of coming together right now."

Hill has a chance to be the No. 2 receiver behind Eric Decker.


Report: Jets could be ready to 'cut bait' on Stephen Hill


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Jets receiver Stephen Hill drew strong reviews for his work in minicamp. But the New York Daily News insists the Jets "could be ready to cut bait on their 2012 second rounder who has had two miserable seasons, especially if he can't stay healthy in the preseason." 

Hill was selected under the Mike Tannenbaum regime, so general manager John Idzik "just may cut the team's losses on him," the report said. Hill has 45 catches for 594 yards and four touchdowns through two seasons.


Jets studs and duds from offseason work


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) The Jets have finished up their minicamp and are off until training camp. With that in mind, the Newark Star-Ledger broke down some studs and duds from all the offseason work.

The studs include receivers Stephen Hill and David Nelson, offensive lineman Oday Aboushi, cornerback Dexter McDougle and safety Calvin Pryor .

The duds were quarterbacks Michael Vick and Matt Simms and offensive lineman Willie Colon.


Jets not calling Stephen Hill a bust - yet


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/2014) The Jets aren't ready to give up on third-year receiver Stephen Hill, but he needs to play better, according to receivers coach Sanjay Lal, the New York Daily News reports.

"It's a little early to label him as a bust," Lal said. "When I think of bust, I don't think of him that way. I have seen players who are higher picks that were busts because of their own laziness. Those are busts. ... I have a hard time labeling a guy a bust when he's done everything in his power. Luck in terms of injuries hasn't been on his side. Therefore, he hasn't produced consistently. And he's still only 23 years old."


Stephen Hill still learning in year three


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/23/2014) Jets receiver Stephen Hill declared himself healthy on Thursday, saying he had "no issues" with his knees or any other part of his body. With that being the case, the third-year receiver knows it's a make-or-break season coming up. 

Hill referred to his first two seasons as a learning experience, one that he hopes pays off in 2014. 

"[T]he only thing I have to get right: Just my preparation, and how to get things done," he said per the Newark Star-Ledger. "Certain things don't have to be full speed all the time. Making sure how to learn in the classroom, where to right things down, where can I see flaws in other [teams'] corners and things like that."

"It's a big learning curve right now, still. But I'm just happy for getting another chance for this year."


Jets' No. 2 receiver remains a mystery


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Eric Decker will enter the season as the Jets' top receiver, but who is No. 2? The team did not draft a high-profile wideout. Jeremy Kerley is better in the slot and Stephen Hill can't be counted on, according to ESPN.com. 

That leaves the Jets hoping one or more of the receivers they drafted will develop fast. Fourth-rounder Jalen Saunders is "small and shifty," and fellow fourth-rounder Shaq Evans "had five touchdown catches of 54-plus yards in his career," the website notes. Sixth-rounder Quincy Enunwa "set a Nebraska single-season record with 12 touchdowns, including a 99-yarder in the Gator Bowl."

All will get a chance to state their case in minicamp and training camp.


Jets 'skeptical' about Stephen Hill's future


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) Jets brass "is skeptical of Stephen Hill's ability to become a reliable piece to the puzzle in 2014 and beyond," reports the New York Daily News. The paper expects the Jets to target receivers in free agency and early in the draft.

Hill has 45 catches over his first two seasons.


Stephen Hill's time with the Jets ending?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/4/2014) Jets receiver Stephen Hill has had a pair of disappointing seasons, both of which ended with him on injured reserve. Over two seasons Hill caught 45 passes (on 106 targets) for 594 yards and four touchdowns. Because his production hasn't been up to par, ESPN believes he's not a lock for a roster spot in 2014

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) Jets wideout Stephen Hill says he doesn't need new surgery on the surgically-repaired knee that gave him problems and ended his season prematurely, reports the New York Daily News. In 12 games, Hill caught 24 passes for 342 yards and a touchdown.

Season over for Stephen Hill


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) The Jets made the expected move Friday of placing wide receiver Stephen Hill on IR with what is now a season-ending knee injury, Newsday has reported.

Hill has been a major disappointment this season after a fast start. He was held without a catch in five of his last 10 games, all but one of which were starts. He has just one catch for 2 yards in his last four games, though the injury could have been a contributing factor to his lack of production.


Rex Ryan expresses disappointment in Stephen Hill


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) Rex Ryan admitted Wednesday that the progress of Jets second-year wide receiver Stephen Hill "doesn't look good," but added that a injured knee has played a part in his lack of production, per Newsday.

Hill, whom Ryan didn't deny could miss the rest of the season with the injury, was active in the four games previous to Week 14 against Oakland and caught just one pass for 2 yards during that stretch. He has just 11 receptions in nine games since a strong start.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
