The Facts: Hill started the Bengals conditioning program fresh from his new training gig at One-on-One in Los Angeles. After two sub-par seasons following a Rookie of the Year season in 2014, Hill transformed his regimen and says it's the best offseason he's ever had. "It wasn't working. What I was doing wasn't working," Hill said. "Try something new."
Diehards Line: As Bengals.com staffer Geoff Hobson noted, Hill has become a bit beleaguered after averaging 3.7 yards per carry combined in 2015 and 1016. Hill did not fumble this season and led the team with 839 yards and nine rushing TDs, but inconsistency and injuries plagued him all season as he fought through shoulder and knee injuries before missing the first game of his career in the season finale with an MCL sprain. On Monday, he reiterated, “No excuse. Everybody has injuries.” Previous reporting has indicated Hill's role could diminish this season. It sounds like he'll do what he can to keep that from happening.
