This summer, the 26-year-old is still hoping to get cleared and find a home. Hill sounds optimistic that clearance will come soon.
"I think for me coming off a big ACL injury, I'm just doing what I can to get back to 100 percent," Hill said, via Herbie Teope of The Advocate. "I know there's going to be a job waiting on me when I get cleared, so that's all I'm doing now.
"I'm just trying to get healthy and once that happens, I'll be back. I'm pretty close. I'm about eight months out of surgery, so hopefully soon."
Hill remains a free agent as he rehabs his knee injury.
If he can show he's healthy, Hill could get a shot to battle for a roster spot during someone's training camp. Given the standing of backup running backs, that opportunity isn't a given, and the veteran might have to wait until injuries start to pile up.
His performance last August and early September suggested Hill has a place in the league. Getting healthy is the first step in getting another shot to prove he still belongs.
