Hill’s talent led the Jets to take him in the second round of the 2012 draft, but he was never able to come close to what was expected of him. After two disappointing seasons, the Jets cut Hill prior to the 2014 season. Soon after, the Panthers added him to their taxi squad. In July of last year, Hill was issued a citation for a drug paraphernalia charge during a traffic stop in Concord, North Carolina, which is presumably the reason for the two-game ban.
Hill is still only 25 years old, but he hasn’t garnered any known interest on the free agent market since being cut loose by Carolina prior to the start of the season.
