1. Troy Hill

While Troy Hill is certainly not a forgotten player in the NFL, most Bengals fans probably don’t know that he started his career in Cincinnati.

In the 2014 season, Troy Hill was activated off Cincinnati’s practice squad and appeared in three games. In that three-game stretch, Hill accounted for six tackles. After a short stint in Cincinnati, Hill would go on to play five seasons in Los Angeles for the Rams. During the 2020 season, Hill started all 16 games for L.A. and had two pick-sixes.

Hill signed with the Cleveland Browns leading into the 2021 season, playing a decently large role in their secondary. Despite appearing in 12 games last season, Hill only started four of them. After one short season in Cleveland, the Browns traded Hill back to the L.A. Rams for a future fifth-round pick.

While trading him back to the team he left was certainly an interesting move, Hill will now take snaps for the team he saw most of his success in his seven-year career.
