The Buffalo Bills were looking at adding a running back to their roster after reports came out that the team lost Nyheim Hines for the season due to a skiing accident. The Bills appeared interested in signing a former Green Bay Packers running back.
The Bills were quickly linked to free agents Ezekiel Elliott and Dalvin Cook. However, the team looked at cheaper options Monday.

Hill was a former 2021 seventh-round pick by the Packers. He played in ten total games for the Packers. He ran the ball 11 times for 31 yards and added five receiving yards during his time in Green Bay.
According to WSH Media files, the Packers released Hill in the middle of the 2022 regular season for reasons unrelated to his performance on the field. Head coach Matt LaFleur appeared to indicate the cut was due to attitude reasons. Hill has not been signed by another NFL team since he was waived by the Packers last November.
