Price was the 21st overall selection of the 2018 NFL Draft. He missed six games during his rookie season due to a foot injury, but played and started in every game of the 2019 and 2020 seasons. He was set to be a free agent in 2022 after Cincinnati declined his option in April of 2021.
Hill’s most productive season was his rookie campaign, after being selected in the third round of the same draft as Billy Price. He played in 16 games, starting 12 of them and racking up 5.5 sacks and 48 combined tackles. Since then, his starts have declined along with his tackling numbers and his sacks. 2021 will be the last year of his current contract.
