Hilton has agreed to a contract with the Bengals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Hilton was a versatile piece in Pittsburgh, shining in the slot while also capably filling in when called upon on the outside. He logged three sacks, three interceptions and 51 tackles in 12 games last season, starting six. The details of Hilton's contract have yet to be disclosed, but he'll likely take on a starting role in Cincinnati and get paid accordingly.
Hilton (ankle) was able to return to Sunday's game against the Browns, Dale Lolley of DK Pittsburgh Sports reports. Hilton's return had been questionable due to an ankle injury. His availability is a major boon to a Pittsburgh secondary that's already operating without Joe Haden (reserve/COVID-19).
Hilton (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Browns, Steelers Director of Communications Burt Lauten reports. James Pierre should take on a larger role opposite Steven Nelson in Hilton's absence. Hilton was quiet before getting hurt, totaling just one tackle.
Hilton recorded one assisted tackle in Sunday's 24-22 loss to the Browns. The Steelers rested Hilton for a significant portion of Sunday's game against Cleveland, and he didn't generate much production as a result. The 26-year-old missed four weeks due to a shoulder injury this year but still finished with a career-high three interceptions. He also totaled 51 tackles (42 solo), including three sacks, seven pass defenses and two fumble recoveries during his fourth year in the league. He should be well rested ahead of the playoffs prior to hitting free agency during the offseason.
Hilton recorded four tackles (two solo), one interception, one fumble recovery and one pass defense in Sunday's 28-24 win over the Colts. Despite missing four games due to a shoulder injury earlier this year, Hilton now has a career-high three interceptions with one week remaining in the regular season. Over 11 games in 2020, the 26-year-old has totaled 50 tackles (41 solo), including three sacks, three interceptions, seven pass defenses and two fumble recoveries.
