Remember when John Harbaugh said there would be a short leash with off-field incidents this offseason? We'll find out if that's true when it comes to failed child support payments.

According to TMZ and later confirmed by The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, New Jersey authorities have a warrant for safety Will Hill's arrest due to his failure to pay $16,588 in child support. Hill was previously arrested in 2013 for failed child support payments as well.

Hill apparently knows there's an issue with this but is unaware that New Jersey authorities have issued a warrant.

Hill doesn't have to worry about the cops showing up at his door. But if he gets caught doing something as small as committing a minor traffic violation, he can be arrested. It's probably in his best interest to turn himself in and get the issue resolved.

Hill has had other off-field issues in the past, including testing positive for marijuana and Adderall. He served a six-game suspension to start the 2014 season.

The Ravens sure could use his talent in the secondary next season, given the unit's issues in defending the pass this past year. Unfortunately for Hill, he has already gotten his offseason to a rocky start.
