The Facts: Following up on the previous item. ... The Falcons announced that Hill had signed his restricted free agent tender.
Diehards Line: Although initial reports indicated Hill didn't sign the tender, he did. The reserve running back was tendered at the low level of $2.133 million, and since the deadline for offer sheets has passed, there was no reason to delay. After Ito Smith went on injured reserve, Hill was the primary backup to Devonta Freeman last year, finishing with 109 carries for 517 yards and two touchdowns. Freeman has since been released, and replaced by Todd Gurley.
