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."
Due to a number of suspensions, Hill has not competed for an entire season in the NFL. He was suspended for the first six games last season but made an impact during the final 10 games.
"I came back six games late," Hill said. "I'm just trying to get a good 16 games this year."
In 10 games last year, Hill recorded 41 tackles and returned an interception for a touchdown.
Will signed his $1.542 million right-of-first-refusal original round tender. He did not receive an offer sheet from other teams. Walker signed a $510,000 exclusive-rights free agent tender.
Hill, 25, started eight of the ten games that he played in last year recording 42 total tackles, four passes defensed and one interception -- that was returned for a touchdown.
