With CB Aaron Ross out for the season, the Ravens signed his former teammate Will Hill to pick up some of the slack.
The Ravens have signed former Giants Safety Will Hill to fill the roster spot left by Aaron Ross after he suffered a season ending injury on Thursday.
Hill will not be an immediate starter, as he will have to serve a 6-game suspension to start the 2014 season after violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. He is still eligible to participate in training camp and preseason games.
“If we need it, Will will provide depth in the middle of the season,” Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said to the Baltimore Sun.
Hill has three suspensions since he joined the league in 2012 – once for 4 games in 2012 over performance-enhancing drug use, another four games in 2013 for substance abuse, and now this one.
Hill had 9 starts for the Giants in 2013. In Game 15 against the Detroit Lions, Hill recorded his first TD on a 38-yard interception return.
