Pat Leonard adds the Bengals will receive a conditional seventh-round pick from the Giants along with Hill.
New York has had some issues on the offensive line, so they flip Hill at a position they’re deep at for Price, a former first-round pick.
Price was beaten out by Trey Hopkins to start at center and has never been able to find a groove in Cincinnati. He’s been tried out at guard and it’ll be interesting to see if the Giants want him at guard or plan to move Nick Gates from center.
It’s also worth mentioning the Giants clear about $2 million in cap space by trading Hill.
Price, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Bengals in 2018. He’s entering the fourth year of a four-year, $11.712 million rookie deal that included a $6.598 million signing bonus.
Cincinnati declined Price’s fifth-year option this offseason, meaning he’ll be an unrestricted free agent in 2022.
In 2020, Price was active for all 16 games, making one start for the Bengals.
Hill, 26, was selected with the No. 69 overall pick by the Giants in the third round out of N.C. State in 2018. He’s entering the final year of a four-year, $3,489,516 contract that included a $1,029,516 signing bonus.
In 2020, Hill appeared in all 16 games for the Giants and recorded 32 total tackles, two tackles for loss, one sack and one pass defense.
