Troy Hill is returning to the Rams.

Hill, a Browns cornerback who previously played six seasons for the Rams, is being traded from Cleveland to Los Angeles, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The Rams are giving up a 2023 fifth-round pick to acquire Hill.

The Browns drafted cornerback Martin Emerson in the third round and apparently decided that pick made Hill expendable.

Originally an undrafted rookie of the Bengals in 2015, Hill played only briefly in Cincinnati and then in New England before the Rams claimed him on waivers.

He left the Rams and signed with the Browns a year ago, but now he’s back.

    The Browns must be in caphell

    ——
    Currently $22m Below the cap for 2022.
    Deshaun and Denzel are backloaded for the future when the cap increases.

  3. Rams work in mysterious ways. Last year they let him walk now they trade for him. There must be some sort of method to this madness

  4. It’s an overload of riches at CB but yes i’m sure it was cap related when you can replace a vetran with a rookie it was a win win move for both good luck Troy.

  5. Hill was horrible last year (PFF graded at 60!) and the Browns only started him TWICE all season. Good riddance.

  6. Now that the Patriots no longer have a championship caliber team, they troll the articles of other teams and expose their sheer ignorance Well, actually, even when their team was great they, managed to show their stupidity.

  7. I’m curious about cap impact. How much of his deal did the Browns have to eat? The Rams know his skills and know how to be successful with him. If we got him at a discount because the Browns were done with him, even better. The Rams let veteran defenders walk and it seems like they don’t perform as well with other teams.

  8. Troy Hill was the lowest graded PFF starter cornerback in the league last year. He was a liability on the field. Remember that Chargers game blown coverage catch and pass 45 yard TD? That was Troy Hill’s assignment. That game is exactly why the Browns drafted a cornerback.
