Former LSU running back and second-round pick Jeremy Hill has signed his rookie deal with the Bengals, electing to break the news via his personal twitter account.

"Just inked my deal with the Bengals #WhoDeyNation gonna be a great season," Hill wrote.

Hill will look to be a change-of-pace back with Gio Bernard's role seemingly evolving. Hill ran for 1,401 yards and 16 touchdowns last season with LSU.

Hill did have a couple of run-ins with the law, which included two arrests. Hill could get some reps as a rookie, though that depends on what Cincinnati plans to do with BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
