The Baltimore Ravens announced the signing of former Giants S Will Hill on Friday.
- Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that Hill will receive a one-year contract.
- Aaron Wilson confirms that Hill will receive a one-year contract, but adds that the agreement is worth the veteran minimum ($570,000) and includes no signing bonus.
The Giants waived Hill this past Monday just a few days after he had had lost his appeal for violating the NFL Policy for Substances of Abuse. Hill will be forced to miss the first six games of the 2014 season due to his previous suspension.
“If we need it, Will will provide depth in the middle of the season,” Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said of the signing.
Hill signed with the Arizona Rattlers of the Arena Football League this June.
Hill, 24, has been suspended three times in as many years. Last year, Hill appeared in 12 games and totaled 77 tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and a recover for the Giants.
It’s worth mentioning that Pro Football Focus had Hill rated as the No. 2 safety in league last season.
