The Jets have signed undrafted free agent rookie wide receiver Austin Hill.
Jets are signing former University of Arizona WR Austin Hill, per source. Hill participated in Jets rookie minicamp. (With Raiders too).— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) July 27, 2015
Hill is a big-bodied 6'3" 212 pound target. He suffered a torn ACL in 2013, and his production subsequently went down in his final college season. Hill was on the verge of signing with Seattle after the Draft but failed his physical. He later signed with and was let go by the Raiders. Hill got a tryout in minicamp with the Jets a few months back.
Based on what we know about Hill, it seems like he might be competing more for a practice squad spot than one on the active roster. Maybe he could use more time to recover from the knee injury that has hampered him the last two years.
