Thoughts? He has been suspended for the first 6 games of the season.

It's easy to say this is the last guy we should sign with all the Ray Rice controversy and offseason arrests, the return to the perception of the Ravens as thugs, etc., but if you step back from all that for a moment, this has the potential to be a huge signing.

 

This guy has gobs of talent; aggressive in run support, fast, looks good in coverage, pretty solid tackler.  Darian Stewart will probably be decent but unspectacular, Terrence Brooks needs time to develop.  The upside of this guy if he stays out of trouble is tremendous, and if he screws up again it's an easy decision to unload him.  The only real downside is the "even MORE evidence the Ravens are criminals!" chatter, but this is coming from the same "Ray Lewis Murderer lol!" doofuses who wouldn't relent no matter what we do, so who cares?

Rated PFF #2 FS, 6'1", 207 lbs, good balls skills, great coverage skills, great hitter, just a knucklehead of the field.

With a 6 game suspension, I wonder if he's signed for more than a year.

Provides talent in camp that helps our depth and allows defense to give offense good looks.

During suspension doesn't affect roster numbers and if we are struggling when over he gets a shot. If we are playing well he doesn't impact cap

1 year, minimum deal with no signing bonus.  However, he's an RFA after the year so we'd still have first dibs on him via the tender if we want to keep him.

So we got him locked if he plays well and can release him asap if he doesn't

Can't hurt. This can only pay off.

 

Our image already sucks right now, so what's one more controversy? Kidding, lol. 

 

Like the signing. This guy could really pay off

You say kidding, but I agree with that statement lol.  We have 5 arrests/issues already.  Is 6 the magic number that confines the team to eternal damnation?  I think not, so hey, why not pick up a character risk?

McClain and Doss were also arrested. Can you imagine? lol

 

It really can't get any worse this offseason so whatever honestly.

Exactly.  Our reputation is already ruined.  Might as well take some chances on these guys now, especially if they're as good as Hill is.

Agreed. Nothing will rehabilitate our image except time so...

 

Will Hill is a great player, but also a great dope. But if the great player is more present than the great dope then we have a steal. This is a guy who PFF graded as the SECOND best safety in the league.

 

Being the villain isn't so bad, we won a Super Bowl in that role in 2000. I don't really support Rice or the management's response but the Ravens will always be my team and I'll always defend them.

I like the fact that he's only 24. If he cleans up his act (big IF), then I agree that this could be another typical Ozzie steal.

I have to admit I agree with this. Frankly, we've reached Bengal level anyhow, so what the heck. Might as well hit rock bottom and hope to start climbing back up.

In reading the comments from Ozzie and Harbaugh, they seem to think Hill is ready to straighten out his off field issues. Stating the obvious, if it works this signing could end up being huge for the future of the D.

When was the last time the Bengals won a championship?

Or even a playoff game?

Even with all their talent?

I don't want us to be "Bengal level".

I'd rather see us return to "Playing like a Raven".

Giants organization is a very organized frnachise. If Coughlin and the personnel couldn't help him, I highly doubt he'll change here.

Some people just don't get it. You can't fix stupid.

Agree. I'm sure he told the Giants that he changed too. But it's worth a shot.
