Tackle Rashod Hill‘s time as a restricted free agent has come to an end.

Hill’s agent announced on Monday that his client has signed his tender with the Vikings. Hill was tendered at the lowest level earlier this offseason and will make $2.025 million under the terms of his deal.

Hill signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted rookie in 2016, but the Vikings signed him off of Jacksonville’s practice squad later in the year. He’s started 15 of the 27 games he’s played in Minnesota over the last two seasons, including the first eight games of the 2018 season.

Most of those starts came at right tackle, but rookie Brian O'Neill took over the job in the second half of the year. O’Neill remains with the team and is projected to hold onto the starting job as well.

  1. Capable enough back-up. I usually don’t cringe when he enters the game, but just pace nervously.

  2. Defensive linemen sometimes take a year or two to get in a groove with the rest of the line. The Viking have a good defensive line coach and staff.

    The turnstile you know is better than the turnstile you don’t know.
    True, plus if nothing else Cousins doesn’t get hurt every other week even with this turnstile. Unlike the overly sensitive guy in wisco where its get hurt, whine about injury, repeat for the past two years.

  4. If it is a teachable issue Minnesota is the place. Sometimes strength and conditioning and tweaking the bugs out of a players efforts can make the difference between 1st string 3red or practice squad only.
    Minnesota has so many injuries on the line because Rick Spielman believes coaching ANY big guy will give you a pro bowl starter! Yeah, hows that been working for you the last 6 years Ricco?

  5. Not getting any better only getting paid. Should be on a practice squad or selling real estate. But, the vikes have always been beggars not choosers oline wise under Spielmans watch.
