    Waived by Vikings and Colts previously. Off-Field behavior while with MN.

    https://thevikingage.com/2020/12/09/minnesota-vikings-waive-holton-hill/

    Hill ended up going undrafted and this had more to do with his off-the-field behavior rather than what he actually did with a helmet on. Mike Zimmer and the Vikings thought they could straighten this kid out and turn him into someone who could help the team’s defense.

    Well, after only appearing in 12 games for Minnesota since the start of last season, the team announced on Tuesday that they had waived Hill from injured reserve. Prior to the Vikings waived him, Hill had been dealing with a foot injury that had kept him off the field since Week 4.

    All things considered, not a bad addition to the PS. Hopefully he can work his way up.

    I saw Vikings and CB and off-field behavior and thought it was their 2020 1st rd pick CB Gladney who was cut for domestic violence.

    I wonder if that guy is as untouchable as toxic waste now or will some desperate team give him a 2nd chance.

    Well, thats all you can expect at this point,,, names getting signed that nobody with any credibility can actually stand behind with support.
    There is probably somebody in this house that knows everything about Holton Hill, but thats not me.
    I consider myself fairly knowledgeable with league wide depth, but Im not coming out and giving any opinion, because I have absolutely no clue.

    Makes sense. Watkins and Armstrong out a while... Steven: "Hey Jer !! lets sign a corner!!'

    Jer: "Uh... not to be trite.... but uh.. mosquito nuggets... okay lets do it"

    Outside of a trade its just not available.
    Not a team in this league is hanging a value DL even out on the PS without protection.
    ST help is about it at this point.
