Free agent safety Will Hill‘s 10-game suspension has officially ended, as Doug Kyed of NESN tweets. Hill was suspended in March for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, and was subsequently released by the Ravens.
Having made 14 starts in 2015 and received a contract extension from the team, Hill was Baltimore’s best safety last year according to Pro Football Focus, which ranked him 17th out of 88 qualified safeties at the position. For the season, he had 64 tackles, a sack, an interception, and six passes defended, but he saw his role reduced near the end of the season, appearing in just 49 defensive snaps in the Ravens’ final two games.
Hill has violated NFL policies in the past, resulting in multiple suspensions, so it’s unclear if another club is willing to give him another chance. Typically, however, talent wins out in the NFL, so if Hill can prove that he’s clean, he’s likely to be signed at some point.
