The deal is thought to be worth $4 million over 4 years, including a $1 million signing bonus.
Hill has really impressed thus far in OTA’s, even playing as a starter at times.
Hill was expected to spell Damon Harrison as the backup nose tackle during his rookie season but he has already been elevated to the starting lineup in place of the suspended Josh Mauro at the right defensive end position. Hill has been so impressive in practices that the Giants have continued to use him as the starter over incumbents like Kerry Wynn and Robert Thomas. (247)
