Hill was claimed off waivers by the Jaguars on Monday, The Washington Post's Master Tesfatsion reports.
Hill was scooped up by the Redskins after the Seahawks released him from its IR list in mid-October, but Washington elected to part ways with Hill on Saturday in order to bring in a long snapper. Now in Jacksonville, Hill joins a defensive tackle group already five-deep at the position.
Hill was released by the Redskins on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
Hill signed with Washington in early November after parting ways with Seattle, but hasn't played in a single game this season due to a hamstring injury. The Redskins needed his roster spot in order to sign long snapper Rick Lovato.
The move comes after the team moved tight end Niles Paul (shoulder) to injured reserve Tuesday. The defensive lineman was released by the Seahawks a little less than a month ago after reaching an injury settlement with the team. The former third-round pick from 2013 will expect to compete for reserve reps with Ziggy Hood and may even get an opportunity to start once he learns the playbook. Last season with the Seahawks, Hill recorded 24 tackles and one pass deflection in 10 games.
Hill had been on IR since prior to the regular season and he's now eligible to be signed by any NFL team. He's a talented inside pass rusher when healthy, which has proven to be an issue to this point in his career. It's unclear if he's healthy enough to play this season, if so another team may look to give him a chance.
