    Re: Tye Hill to Atl.

    Just read that on FOX Sports. Here is the article.

    The Atlanta Falcons continue efforts to bolster a roster in hopes of making a Super Bowl run this season.

    The Falcons Tuesday acquired Rams former first-round pick CB Tye Hill in a trade, FOXSports.com has learned. In return, the Rams received a seventh-round selection in next year's draft.
    As far as the Rams, they are definitely in rebuilding mode under new coach Steve Spagnuolo. New St. Louis general manager Billy Devaney also was originally the executive who hired Thomas Dmitroff as GM in Atlanta before last season, making these trade talks an easy process. Hill was originally the 15th overall pick in the 2006 draft by St. Louis, and has four career interceptions in his three NFL seasons.

              Well I guess we won't be having anymore Hill v. Cromartie discussions. This puts the final nail in that issue although there really wasn't much else to say.

              However, methinks that this is really not all about Hill but a certain unheard of rookie named Quincy Butler who has, by most reports, been playing well in TC and the pre-season games.

              Heh. Pretty funny don't ya think? Tye Hill beat out by an undrafted rookie and traded for a 7th round pick. Ouch!! He might be needing some self-esteem counseling sessions in the near future.

              WHAT SAY YE?

                      Brilliant post! Maybe we should have cut him outright and got nothing for him?

                        The Post says Wade is the starter with King as the nickel. Ouch. Wade hasn't exactly been tearing it up when I've seen him. JMO but this is a cap cut to rebuild for 2010. There is one guy on this roster that is a massive cap hit in 2010 that had better turn things up drastically if he wants to survive the season. Marc? Hello?

                          Remember how excited Linny was when they acquired Hill? My neighbors can probably remember the loud string of expletives originating from my house when we traded down passing on Haloti Ngata and Broderick Bunkley to acquire Hill. Well .. at least we got a peanut butter sandwich for him .. :mad:

                              You don't think this remotely has the smell of a salary cap cut? Look at the people cut by the Rams that took a significant 2009 salary cap hit to free up space for 2010. Tye Hill is just the most recent. The only (aged and expensive) player on the roster still that fits that mold is Marc.

                              Atlanta is likely to make the playoffs this year again. We received one of the last picks in the draft for the guy. That's basically equal to cutting the guy.

                                By Jim Thomas
                                St. Louis Post-Dispatch


                                At 8 a.m., Tuesday, cornerback Tye Hill was a Ram, sitting in a meeting room in Earth City, getting ready for Thursdays preseason finale against Kansas City. Less than eight hours later, he was in Atlanta, taking a physical, and getting ready for his new career as a Falcon.

                                It was definitely a surprise, Hill told the Post-Dispatch Tuesday night.

                                Hills morning at Rams Park was interrupted by a call to the office of coach Steve Spagnuolo. This time of year, such a summons normally isnt a good thing. Obviously, it wasnt this time, either.

                                (Spagnuolo) told me the Rams are trying to build, Hill said. I can definitely see that. . . .They said they needed some picks. I understand that.

                                In the case of the Hill trade, it turned out to be only one pick _ and a seventh-rounder at that. Which tells you the Rams probably were thinking of cutting Hill, and tried to get something for him. In keeping with Hills sunny-side-up personality, he took no parting shots as he left the Rams.

                                He liked the players, liked the new coaching staff, and had a lot of friends in the locker room.

                                I wish nothing but the best for the Rams, he said. Im going to miss my teammates. Im going to miss St. Louis. Ive got to move on.

                                Hill departed so quickly Tuesday morning for Atlanta, he had time to say goodbye to only a few teammates.

                                Im going to miss those guys, Hill said. I think the Rams are going to be really good. Spags is the right guy for the job.

                                Similarly, Hill had good things to say about Jonathan Wade, his probable successor.

                                I think hes going to be a good player for St. Louis, Hill said. Hes definitely come a long way.

                                As of Tuesday night, Hill said he wasnt familiar with what the Falcons had on their depth chart at the cornerback position. But hes looking forward to the challenge, and excited about the opportunity to play only about two hours from his South Carolina home.

                                Thats the biggest thing. Im closer to home, Hill said. Now my family and friends can see me play. Its always a great opportunity when you get a fresh start. Hopefully, its a good move for St. Louis. Definitely its a great move for me.

                                by shower beers
                                Falcons released CB Tye Hill.
                                After years of getting burned in St. Louis, Hill was limited to eight games with the Falcons last season. Despite the team's desperation at cornerback, Hill was relegated to bench warming late in the season. The former first-rounder won't draw much interest on the open market.



                                Another former Ram traded, then released. Say what you want about our FO, but we know when to fold 'em, that's for sure.

                                Tye Hill makes first start; is replaced later in game.

                                Per Rotoworld:


                                Tye Hill made his first start at left corner for the Falcons in Monday night's loss to the Saints.
                                Hill was beaten for a touchdown by Marques Colston, cramped up and was replaced by Brent Grimes, who later made a great interception. It's unclear who the starter is heading into this week's game against the Redskins.

                                -----------------


                                Any bets as to how our seventh round pick will compare to Hill?

                                Nice pick and juke/spin move by Hill for Clemson. Feel free to move this, just a boring time of the year for football talk.
