GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers have signed quarterback Nick Hill.
Hill signed with the Chicago Bears in 2008 as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Illinois. He was released before the 2009 season and played in the Arena Football League for the Orlando Predators in 2010-11 before signing with the AFL's Tampa Bay Storm for the 2012 season.
In 2011, Hill completed 387 of 578 passes for 4,758 yards and 97 touchdowns with 17 interceptions in 16 games for Orlando. He also ran for nine TDs.
Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn could leave as a free agent in the offseason. No. 3 quarterback Graham Harrell could move up to become Aaron Rodgers' main backup next season.
Green Bay general manager Ted Thompson announced Hill's signing Friday.
