Ravens BREAKING: Baltimore Re-Signs RB Justice Hill to Multi-Year Contract

The Baltimore Ravens have re-signed running back Justice Hill in free agency, according to ESPN.

On the day in which quarterback Lamar Jackson can officially begin speaking with other teams, the Baltimore Ravens have re-signed one of his backfield mates.

The Ravens and running back Justice Hill agreed to terms on a two-year, $4.5 million contract that can be worth up to $5 million, per ESPN.

Hill, 25, was drafted by Baltimore in the fourth-round of the 2019 NFL Draft and has developed into a steady contributor on both offense and special teams.

This past season, Hill rushed for a career-high 262 yards and 5.3 yards per carry on 49 attempts and caught 12 passes for 58 yards in a bounce-back effort after missing all of 2021 with a torn Achilles.

The 5-10, 200-pound Hill also returned kickoffs, taking 10 kicks for 247 yards, including a 56-yard return against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 17.

During the 2020 season, Hill played in 61 percent of Baltimore's special teams snaps across 12 games and was on the field for 56 percent of such snaps this past year.

Hill is a key contributor on both punt and kick coverage units, logging 15 tackles in his last two healthy seasons, including six in 2022.

While he'll likely sit behind J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards in the running backs room, Hill has proven he can be efficient when given the opportunity and is a valuable asset on special teams, making him an important retainment by Baltimore.
