Report: Former LSU RB Jeremy Hill to sign with New England Patriots

Jeremy Hill has found a new home in the NFL, and it couldn’t be a better spot for the former LSU star.

Hill will be signing with the New England Patriots after spending four seasons in Cincinnati as a member of the Bengals, per Field Yates.

After rushing for 1,401 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2013, Hill was drafted in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Bengals, becoming the 55th overall pick in the draft. His rookie season was a success, as he rushed for 1,124 yards and nine touchdowns. Hill would follow that up with 794 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2015.

Expected to play a big part in the Bengals offense in 2017, Hill started the first seven games but was outplayed by Joe Mixon, a rookie out of Oklahoma. Hill would be placed on injured reserve in November.
