Ravens sign Will Hill, because of course they do

New York Giants v Washington Redskins Getty Images

The Ravens led the NFL in offseason arrests, and have become pariahs in the last 24 hours for the too-lenient league punishment for wife-beating running back Ray Rice.

So naturally, they signed a guy who is currently serving a league suspension.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens have signed former Giants safety Will Hill.

Hill was suspended six games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, after previously being suspended for both the PED and substance abuse policies.

Why they would choose to take on such a project right now is a question that will be pondered in public relations classes for the future, but they’re clearing rolling the dice on being able to tap into the ability that the Giants got tired of waiting for.

    The Baltimore Ravens, where crime and immoral behavior does indeed pay

  2. chip56 says: Jul 25, 2014 10:30 AM

    Hill’s an amazing talent who just can’t stay out of trouble.

  3. joeflaccoallday says: Jul 25, 2014 10:31 AM

    Good signing. Can practice and play in preseason and be kept on the team till his suspension over. We only had really 1 starting safety for sure which is Matt Elam so we needed depth because they’re looking for an in-house corner to step up.

  4. jamaltimore says: Jul 25, 2014 10:32 AM

    This is the land of second and third chances. Look in any institution and you’ll find people in the same situation.

    It’s the Ravens Way!!

  6. jintsfan says: Jul 25, 2014 10:34 AM

    The kid is a STUD player but a world class loser. Nevertheless, as a Giants fan, I was hoping they’d keep in a we’d just cross our fingers. Too much credit went to Beason for turning the Giants D around last year (from like 25th to 8th in the league). Hill returned from suspension same week as Beason arrived. Hill was the difference maker.

    Baltimore jail birds battle Cleveland divas for last place in the AFC North. Steelers and Bengals both make the playoffs.

  8. wittenisgod says: Jul 25, 2014 10:35 AM

    They also worship a player who should of been convicted of murder

  9. southpaw2k says: Jul 25, 2014 10:36 AM

    Seems to me he’s a body for training camp and preseason. The Ravens already have Darien Stewart (who supposedly is playing well), Matt Elam, and rookie Terrance Brooks. I don’t expect Hill to make the final roster.

  10. 2blingluvinit says: Jul 25, 2014 10:36 AM

    Just need him as an extra body for training camp and then let him go.

  11. baltimoremikeg says: Jul 25, 2014 10:37 AM

    Sounds like a good time to sign such a player. A low-risk signing. The Ravens reputation is already in the gutter. This shouldn’t make too much of a difference in public opinion. Keep it coming PFT.

  12. johnelwayishorsefaced says: Jul 25, 2014 10:37 AM

  13. ravensfaninflorida says: Jul 25, 2014 10:39 AM

    Huge Ravens fan here but this is just getting crazy. Seriously starting to lose faith in the entire organization. Not only the players but the whole team, from management down to the waterboy !!!!

  14. heisthejuan says: Jul 25, 2014 10:39 AM

    The face of their franchise killed two people, so…

  15. cheffyglenn says: Jul 25, 2014 10:41 AM

    Why would this surprise anyone when their star player was a murderer. And now their star running back is a woman beater. These two guys exemplify what Baltimore is all about. I’ve lived their before and saw it first hand day in and day out. Dirtiest city I’ve ever lived. I’m sure if Blackmon were to be released the Ratbirds would jump on him as well.

  16. chip56 says: Jul 25, 2014 10:41 AM

    Deadbeat dad joins the wife beater – of course Hill’s not being suspended for being a deadbeat dad – he’s suspended because he’s a deadbeat dad who can’t stay off the pot.

  17. therealstrategist says: Jul 25, 2014 10:41 AM

    Good pickup. Probably got him really cheep, plus he was a very solid player last year, worst comes to worst, he fails another test and you cut him.

  18. raiderufan says: Jul 25, 2014 10:42 AM

    No way you waste your time explaining a move like this for a camp body. He is there to play.

    The Ravens sure do make their fans proud! Guess they take on the image of their city.

  21. blacknole08 says: Jul 25, 2014 10:44 AM

    Well, Hill is a Florida Gator who played under Urban Meyer. Of course he is a trouble maker.

  22. mkoogs says: Jul 25, 2014 10:44 AM

    I hope everyone is now over claiming the Bengals are the NFL jail birds. Looks like the Ravens, among others, now want the title.

  23. ravensrooster94 says: Jul 25, 2014 10:45 AM

    Darin,

    I understand the sarcasm and disgust that you and others in the media have over how the Ravens have handled the Rice situation, but why are the Ravens pariahs for the too-lenient league punishment for wife-beating running back Ray Rice.

    That’s Goodell’s bailiwick. That was his call, for whatever reason.

    I can tell you most Ravens fans were stunned at the leniency meted out to Rice. We were expecting a 4-6 game minimum suspension – and so were the Ravens front office, who would not have stockpiled running backs like cords of wood this off season.

    The Ravens may indeed be pariahs for their handling of all the incidents this off season, but not for the punishment doled to Rice. That tag should reside where it belongs; in Goodell’s office on Park Ave.

  24. flacco8 says: Jul 25, 2014 10:47 AM

    Why do people look to sports to be some sort of moral high ground??

    You people really crack me up…I couldn’t care less about al this crap. Athletes are not role models and as a father of 2 shame on me if I allow my children to use athletes as some sort of moral compass for how they should behave.

    You liberals really crack me up…get over yourselves!!!

    If I was a Ravens fan, which I’m not,I’d be embarrassed at how classless this entire money grubbing organization is.. Is Harbaugh gonna go the prisons to see if any inmates about to be released can help?

  36. gintfan says: Jul 25, 2014 11:15 AM

    Hill is a tremendous talent but the six inches between his ears will haunt him and the Ravens unless they can get through to him. He is like a lot of young men today that need someone to teach them that being a man is not playing football. It is understanding that life is a gift, self love, pride and respect is precious, your community is your team and the world is not a stage, it is your home.

  37. jonestocarr says: Jul 25, 2014 11:21 AM

    Reading these comments is pretty funny. A New England fan criticizing another team about crime & punishment. A Steelers fan doing the same (Big Ben, Holmes, Pouncey, etc.) Fans would be much better off if they rooted for the logo on the helmet & not worry about the men wearing it. Every team in the league faces these issues & unfortunately will continue to do so.

  38. RexCanCoach says: Jul 25, 2014 11:24 AM

    your nuts, Will Hill walks into Ravens camp as their best S period.

    but it will be interesting to see what Ravens brass does in Oct. when Hill is busted with pot again, as sure as it snows in Alaska that WILL happen.

    Flacco8, its not about being liberal, conservative, or a communist. It’s about consistency in the commish handing down punishments. Brandon Meriweather got the same suspension for hitting defenseless receivers on 2 occasions. At least they were both wearing helmets, lol.

It’s in court records. Ray could save a lot of face by talking about it but chooses not to out of respect for the deceased families. The lazy media continues to write that no convictions were made….it wasn’t murder, look it up haters

    Flacco8

    When you group everyone up like you just did in your rant, it makes the somewhat intelligent statement you made sound idiotic.

    First, I am not sure of any self pro-claimed liberals who said football ball players or athletes in general has to be a role model.

    Second, the NFL is the one pushing the role model bit, as the leagues pushes players to participate in out-reach programs. Even the NFL advertises the Play 60 program they run.

    Just like you yes, I am a father of 4 and my wife and I are the true role models we want our children to have but that doesn’t exchange the fact that your team is going against everything they preach in public. Fact of the matter is, all teams do it. When Hines Ward got busted with a DUI, the Steelers did nothing about it, nor when James Harrison got in trouble.

    Fact of the Matter is, the league is in business of making money, and making money might mean looking the other way when your star player gets in trouble, or not integrating your team and Playing Dixie to start every game, like the Washington Redskins owner use to do because he wanted to appease his southern audience.

    With that said, your team is in the dog house right now. Accept the jabs and move on and stop trying to justify this stretch of bad behavior by throwing out this role model bit.

  45. Kaz says: Jul 25, 2014 11:34 AM

    When Ravens fans took shots at the Bengals it was all good. Now the jokes on them and it’s the Liberal Media, communists, Marxist folks that are making a big deal out of this. smh. Too funny Flacco 8. You’ve got to come a little better than that around these parts. This isn’t Fox News.com

  55. maf0030 says: Jul 25, 2014 11:47 AM

    Ok, I know it is hard for most of you to understand. There are two types of policies that can be violated in the NFL. The Personal Conduct Policy and The Substance Abuse Policy.

    The Personal Conduct Policy- Ray Rice’s situation- takes into account a players past actions and the actual punishment that took place via the justice system. This is why the suspension was only 2 games. No prior offenses, Rice WAS a pillar in the community, and the charges were dropped.

    The Substance Abuse Policy has clearly stated steps. The first offense- nothing happens. 2nd offense a suspension of multiple games, and the third strike- y’er out– full season or longer. Note: This was agreed to in the CBA agreement.

    I wish most of you who just want to bash a team would now facts before you speak. Obviously if the act is awful enough Goodell and company will take the correct action.

    For those of you that say “Pot is legal in Colorado or wherever else”, think about this– it is banned on the substance list, you still cannot smoke it in public, and you still cannot drive under the influence of it. It is banned by the NFL- period.

    Root for your team, have fun at games, but please stop trying to put others down for the logo they cheer for…. because at the end of the day–what makes you better than anybody else!

  56. hakunamangata says: Jul 25, 2014 11:47 AM

    Remember when the Ravens would sign a player with a troubled past and the media would say “Ooooh they’re going to help turn his life around?”

    You know like with Rolando last season?

    Yep timing is everything.

  57. burghman4life says: Jul 25, 2014 11:57 AM

    Enough already, Darrin. You putting this on the Ravens and calling them pariahs is totally unwarranted. They aren’t in charge of handing out discipline. That’s Goodell’s job.

    That being said, don’t understand this signing. Aaron Ross is done for the year, Asa Jackson is one violation away from being cut. CORNERBACK is where the Ravens need depth in the secondary, not safety.

  61. xinellum says: Jul 25, 2014 12:03 PM

    Stupid headline, jump on the beat up Ravens bandwagon but if you look at the issues, 2 of the infractions were players who won’t make the 53 (Thompson,Reid) another was a rookie who never stepped foot in Owings Mills (Taliaferro). Rice screwed up but what has he done since? Rehabilitation, counseling and mostly not committing another act. Isn’t your time better spent harassing Hardy who has done nothing but lie and try to sidestep his issues, or Josh Gordon who can’t stop at one or two or even three arrests, or how about Blackmon or even Josh Brent. Make a spectacle of the guy who has done everything right since his lapse of judgement but give a bye to those guys who don’t seem to get it. Then beat up on the team who helps players do what is best for them and the team and has one of the best front offices and GM’s in the league. Where else for a problem player but where there is accountability and the support to do the right thing.

    Just to quote Steve Bisciotti who I have far more respect for than the writer, “”Is it a flaw for us that we support our players in tough times? If it is, I’m OK with that.” So go ahead and say what you want, we are ok with that. Who doesn’t support a family member through a first time issue? If it is you then I feel sorry for you and your family. Here in small market Baltimore, our team is like family. We will support them until they prove to us, once they are here with the support, that they just don’t get it.

And what does he apologize for? “…the situation that me and my wife were in.” It wasn’t like they stepped out of the elevator trying to pummel each other before Rice finally knocked her out. And watch the video – he sure didn’t look distraught, but rather trying to figure out what to do about his “situation”.

  69. jlw12 says: Jul 25, 2014 12:56 PM

    This is the ELEVENTH Ray Rice related article, for anyone that missed the previous 10. Anyway, we can’t say he hit her or”knocked her out” because the video didn’t show that. “Wife-beating running back”? I don’t expect much from the media or fans of other teams, but labeling one of the league’s most selfless citizens a “wife beater” without knowing that’s what actually happened is extremely reckless and short sighted. Everyone that actually knows what happened has felt it appropriate to give Rice an equivalent of a warning. But I get it, you, who knows nothing, knows better. Proceed.

    Ravensrooster, you can write Darin all the polite letters that you want…he’s a journalist, and he’s doing his job by reporting what is going on and he does a fine job. Further, while the ridiculous punishment for the wife beater came from the Commissioner’s office, it’s SOLELY in the lap of the RAVEN’S FRONT OFFICE that rice is still on the roster. They didn’t cut him, as they should have. He should have been cut the minute he was indicted for the assault. Newsome should be fired, and the whole organization is trash from top to bottom. You NEVER hit a woman. The fact that she apologized for rice hitting her suggests to me that it’s not the first time it has happened, just the first time he was caught.

    So sit there on your high horse and say that you have never made a mistake, hurt someone else- your family, co-worker.

    The problem is that to many people want to judge based on limited facts. There is always more to a story that is reported in the “media”. The so called “journalists” today are as bad as some of the commentors on here.

    “Is it a flaw for us that we support our players in tough times? If it is, I’m OK with that.”

    Steve Bisciotti.

    I am OK with that too.

    One thing I’m grateful for…. Baltimore has no band wagon fans.

    Ravens haters I get it. Nobody likes Goliath! I know everyone wishes your franchise was first rate from top to bottom and won two superbowls in only 17 years but it’s not easy. You have to take some calculated risks and personnel is at the top of that list. Ray Rice, Like Ray Lewis before him will come out of this incident a better PERSON and hopefully a better player.

    Hey PFT how about this RAY RICE WAS NOT CONVICTED OF ANYTHING! He is going to counseling to strengthen his relationship with his wife as mandated by the courts. All the rest is worthless information.

    Can’t wait till the Season starts and everyone starts complaining about great Joe Flacco is or isn’t!

    Baltimore Ravens- Where Character Means Nothing.

    What’s to know? He’s never disputed punching his wife, which means it happened. Isn’t that enough? Sheesh.

    Someone please take Ozzie to the doctor. He is not acting sanely. He may have fallen and hit his head.

    Even the Bengals think the Ravens have become an embarrassment.

    Will Hill can play football.

    Anything else is irrelevant.

    You want choir boys, go to church.
    ——————————————————————–
    Can’t play football when your butt is riding the pine. And he’s done that a lot in recent years, hence why the Giants cut him.

    Great player, just can’t put the weed down.

    I guess the fact he sought pretrial intervention doesn’t shed light on what’s in the video. For the Raven fans wishing this would go away ….hahaha…. This will be brought up for years to come.

    To those Raven fans surprised at the hate directed at your team think about it. You buy the Lewis story as most homers do; however many people believe the justiced arrived at was created by a “snitches end up in ditches” threat by the man who destroyed a white suit.
    Now you have this performance by your player, head coach, GM, and finally the owner basically saying abuse of women is no big deal…the country thinks you a bunch of losers…are they wrong? What do Raven fan dads tell their daughters about abuse? Shameful and disgusting franchise, fan base and owner.

    Gimme a break! He did it. He was caught dead to rights on Video. Accept it Homer.

    Will Hill covers some serious ground fast. He is a top notch safety if he can stay on the field.. The problems is was he taking PED’s or just flying high. So you don’t really know how to measure him. He probably was a top 5-7 safety, maybe better and that’s why he got a 2nd and 3rd chance with the Giants. Hopefully for the Ravens sake he learned his lesson after being cut, and recognize that this is probably his last chance..

    Hey Nofoolnodrool,

    Did you forget your favorite team’s QB raped a woman and got a 6 game suspension? Yep, punished by the same guy who saw all the evidence in both cases and thought that what Roethlisberger did was worse than what Rice did. Apparently your player, head coach, GM and owner didn’t have a problem with him continuing his career in Yellow and Black. I guess raping a woman in a bathroom is no big deal for you, since you have no problem with Roethlisberger playing on your team. Now sit back down and stuff some more chipped ham in your face and stop making stupid comments.

    The sign because it’s a chance to steal a great talent for very little $$$$$. Excellent business decision from a football point of view. Low risk – high reward if he produces and stays out of trouble. Why not sign him?? Some team was going to do it. Another smart move by a great organization! They just keep moving forward as outsiders continue to criticize. Listen up everyone, the Ravens don’t care what you all think, their stadium will be full and the team will win. Watch and learn.
