It looks like the Raiders have added a veteran running back to their mix.
Jeremy Hill tweeted Sunday morning "I'm a Raider." NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported Friday that the Raiders hosted Hill for a workout and planned to sign the running back.
It's official I'm a Raider Now.... #raidernation LETS GET IT— Jeremy Hill (@JeremyHill33) August 2, 2020
Hill, 27, didn't play last season after tearing his ACL in the first game of the 2018 season. He had four carries for 25 yards as a member of the New England Patriots before his season came to a crashing halt.
The former second-round draft pick also only played seven games in 2017. His last full season was 2016, when he rushed for 839 yards and nine touchdowns for the Cincinnati Bengals.
If healthy, Hill can provide a powerful backup option to Josh Jacobs and bring depth to the Raiders' running backs room. He always has had a nose for the end zone, and packs a punch at 230 pounds.
There's no doubt Hill comes with health concerns, and fumbling always has been an issue, but he seems well work the risk for the Raiders.
