Ravens sign safety Will Hill

<p> The Ravens have taken a flyer on former Giants safety Will Hill, signing him to the 90-man roster on Friday, the organization announced.</p> <p> Hill rounds out the roster after cornerback Aaron Ross was moved to injured reserve. Ross tore his Achilles while running the team's conditioning test prior to training camp opening.</p> <p> Hill has had some run-ins with NFL rules, having violated the substance-abuse policy twice and the performance-enhancing drugs policy once. An immensely talented safety, the Giants decided to cut ties as a result. His most recent violation of the substance-abuse policy has resulted in a six-game suspension for the 2014 season.</p> <p> It's a low-risk move for the Ravens, in that his value is cheap and his on-field talent is evident. He had 77 tackles and two interceptions in 12 games (10 starts) in 2013. Hill should be able to add depth to a safety group of Matt Elam, Darian Stewart, Jeromy Miles and Terrence Brooks once he's eligible to play.</p> <p> "If we need it, Will will provide depth in the middle of the season,” Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement.</p> <p> Follow me on Twitter: <a href="http://twitter.com/jasonhbutt">@JasonHButt</a></p>
