FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Falcons announced Monday that they’re bringing back a familiar face and signing running back Brian Hill to their practice squad.

The Falcons selected Hill in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, but he was released by the team during their roster cuts at the end of the preseason and then subsequently signed to their practice squad. Midway through the season, the Cincinnati Bengals signed Hill off the practice squad, and he had been with their organization until they released him over the weekend.

In the preseason, Hill ran for 87 yards on 17 carries, averaging 5.1 yards per carry. Hill was ultra-productive during his time in college at Wyoming, running for 4,287 yards and 35 touchdowns on 775 carries, including a combined 3,491 yards and 28 touchdowns in his final two seasons.
By signing Hill, the Falcons have now fully filled out their 11-man practice squad, which includes an extra spot for tight end Alex Gray who does not count against their practice squad roster limit as part of the International Player Pathway program.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Falcons have trimmed their roster down heading into the 2018 season, ending up with a 52-man active roster on Saturday afternoon. The team’s 52-man roster is one spot below the NFL maximum of 53, leaving room for another player to be added at some time in the future.
