Will Hill

Ravens sign Will Hill

The Ravens have signed former Giant Will Hill.

Hill is suspended the first six games of the season after another violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy. He is allowed to participate in Training Camp.

Hill had been suspended in each of the past two seasons for failed tests.

He played in 12 games with the Giants in 2013, with two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown. He had 60 tackles.

Hill had constantly blown himself up here ion the NY/NJ area so a change of scenery might be the thing to get him straightened out.

The Ravens will be getting a solid on-field presence in Hill, who legitimized the Giants’ secondary last year after Stevie Brown was lost for the season with a torn ACL.

Speaking as a Giants fan, Hill's release stung. I knew there would be another team waiting to sign him based on his potential and production with the Giants.

The NFL's protocol for disciplining players is broken. Michael Vick received a harsher punishment for killing dogs than Donte Stallworth and Leonard Little, who both killed human beings while drinking and driving.

There's a prevalent attitude on this site that what Hill is being punished for is petty. He smoked a joint, big deal. Well the NFL as his employer forbids its employees from marijuana to protect its image. Nearly all of us comply with our employers codes of conduct.

Why should Hill not be held to the same scrutiny?

Will Hill suspended 6 games for doing something that's actually legal in certain parts of the country, Ray Rice suspended only two games for knocking a woman unconscious.  Yeah, that seems about right.

Where he will be mentored by the Rays - Ray Lewis and Ray Rice......


I wish Will the best, but i seem to doubt he can get out of his own way...

@JamesWS Same. I like Will's game. NFL... weed... big deal... Isn't there a Rastafarian exception?

@JamesWS .... At the expense of who?  If you can't be counted upon to show up for work in the real world, they fire you. Hill couldn't keep himself out of trouble and missed enough time to warrant getting let go. We need players we can count on to be available to play, and that does not describe Hill. He was simply not reliable. No questions about his talent level at all, the questions were about his head and decision making abilities to follow rules like everyone else.

@cj1786 Will Hill got suspended for repeatedly violating the law in the state that he lives/works in (and violating something that was collectively bargained by the NFL and NFLPA), and failing tests that he new he would have to take.


That is more of an intelligence test then anything else.
