FOXSports.com's Jay Glazer reports that the Atlanta Falcons have traded a seventh-round pick in 2010 to the St. Louis Rams in exchange for former first-round cornerback Tye Hill.

Hill (5-10, 185) was the 15th overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft and has two years remaining on his rookie contract, that pay him base salaries of $1,037,000 in 2009 and $1,375,500 in 2010.

The former Clemson Tiger has started 21 games during three seasons in the league, totaling 105 tackles and 4 interceptions, with injuries causing him to miss most of the last two seasons.

In 2007, a wrist injury ended his season after 8 games, with torn knee cartilage limiting him to just 4 games in 2008.
