Running back Jeremy Hill’s tenure with the Cincinnati Bengals has come to an end. As he prepares to hit free agency, Hill posted this farewell message to his Twitter account.

Hill was selected by the Bengals in the second round of the 2014 draft. His first season was by far his most productive when Hill rushed for 1,124 yards and nine touchdowns at speedy pace of 5.1 yards per carry.
Since, Hill’s yards per attempt dropped significantly. Though he still managed to tally 20 rushing touchdowns between 2015-16.
The addition of rookie running back Joe Mixon in 2017, along with sharing the backfield with Giovani Bernard, put a screeching halt on Hill’s numbers last season.
After playing in only seven games and failing to score, Hill suffered a season-ending ankle injury last November.
Provided he regains full health, the 25-year-old running back should still attract interest on the open market.
