Falcons Acquire Veteran CB

FOXSports.com's Jay Glazer reports that the Atlanta Falcons have acquired former 1st round CB Tye Hill from the St. Louis Rams.

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.
