The Ravens picked up Hill during the 2014 offseason after he was released by the New York Giants. Hill is no stranger to off-the-field issues in the past, but has been able to keep his nose clean thus far in Baltimore. While playing for the Ravens, Hill has been able to revive his career with great play at the strong safety position.
