The Minnesota Vikings’ tenure of cornerback Holton Hill has reached its end.
Today, the team announced that they have waived the cornerback from their injured reserve list. He had only appeared in four games this season before a foot injury put him on the shelf.
Hill was signed by the Vikings as an undrafted free agent from the University of Texas after the 2018 NFL Draft. He appeared in all 16 games for the Vikings as a rookie, picking up one interception. He missed the first half of the 2019 season because of a pair of 4-game suspensions. One was for violating the league’s Personal Conduct policy, while the other was for violating the league’s policy against performance enhancing drugs.
The team also made two other moves on Sunday. One of those moves was to place tight end Brandon Dillon on the injured reserve list. Dillon, who had been serving as the third tight end in the absence of Irv Smith Jr., left Sunday’s victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars with an ankle injury, and is now on injured reserve.
The Vikings also announced that they have signed offensive lineman Zack Bailey to the practice squad. Bailey, who spent the first eight weeks of this season on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ practice squad, signed with the Bucs as an undrafted free agent out of South Carolina after the 2019 NFL Draft. He has yet to appear in an NFL game. Bailey was waived by Tampa Bay in early November.
Those are your roster moves for today, folks. What do you think about the Holton Hill experiment officially coming to an end?
