The report follows news earlier Wednesday that the Ravens had released Hill, who now faces the fourth, and longest, suspension of his NFL career.
The Ravens have released Will Hill , the Baltimore Sun reports.
The move frees up just over $3 million in salary cap space for the Ravens and sets the stage for converted cornerback Lardarius Webb to start at safety for the team in 2016 alongside free agent signee Eric Weddle.
Will Hill finished the 2015 season with 64 tackles (49 solo), an interception and a sack in 15 games.
Hill doesn't make many big plays or accumulate gaudy tackle totals, but he's been the most consistent player in a shaky defensive backfield over the past two seasons, rarely giving up big gains in coverage. He's locked in as a starter for 2016, albeit with minimal IDP appeal.
Terms of his new deal were not immediately known.
"When I first signed and I sat down with [general manager Ozzie Newsome], I knew from that point that I didn’t want to go anywhere," Hill said, per The Baltimore Sun. "I wanted to be a Raven, and this extension, it just helped out and it gives me a lot of confidence on the playing field and it helps me see what the organization thinks of me."
