Jeremy Hill had an impeccable 2014 rookie season which looked like he would have a promising career in the NFL. However, after the great play of Joe Mixon, Hill began to struggle and suffered a few minor injuries.
A new start would be big for the 25-year-old running back. Signing Hill solidifies a running back corp that looked as if it would struggle without Dion Lewis. With the Return of Rex Burkhead, and already signed James White, Mike Gillislee, and Brandon Bolden, stability seems to be a possibility for the North once more.
