New Jersey law-enforcement officials confirmed there is an active warrant out for
Hill played in 10 games this season, making 41 tackles and returning an interception for a touchdown.
"Will Hill, he has a lot of talent," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said this week during a season-ending news conference. "It's something that we always knew. He also has a great love for the game. He learned our defense throughout the course of the season, which it’s not easy to do that. We have a tough defense. We do a lot of good stuff back there. But he was running the show pretty well back there toward the end of the year."
Hill missed the first six games this season for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy for testing positive for marijuana while he was playing for the Giants. He started the team's last 10 games, including twice in the playoffs. He totaled 41 tackles and one interception in 10 regular-season games.
"Having the offseason, having the OTAs and the minicamp and the training camp is only going to really help him tremendously, as far as being a really good safety for us," Harbaugh said.
Canty has not been able to practice all week.

The Ravens are 5-point favorites.
Hill, who missed the first six games due to a drug suspension before returning as backup the following two weeks, has been given a vote of confidence from defensive coordinator Dean Pees.
"Yep, I'm planning on him being the safety," Pees said via the Baltimore Sun. "Our plan was to get him in there and get him playing. The only way he was going to get better was to play and play and play. So, we saw a lot of talent when he was suspended back when he could practice and felt like when we got him back we would just get hm up to speed."
Hill yielded a 54-yard touchdown reception to Steelers stud wideout Antonio Brown that motivated the corner to issue an apology via social media after the game.
Hill served a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. He is expected to play in a limited fashion against the Falcons.
