Raiders Sign WR Austin Hill


The Raiders have signed undrafted free agent WR Austin Hill, the club announced Tuesday.

Hill joins the Silver and Black after playing three seasons at Arizona (2011-12, 2014), missing his junior season in 2013 due to a knee injury. In 37 games played for the Wildcats, he totaled 151 receptions for 2,310 yards (15.3 avg.) and 17 touchdowns.

As a redshirt sophomore in 2012, the 6-foot-3, 212-pounder was named a Biletnikoff Award semifinalist, All-Pac-12 Second Team and Phil Steele Fourth-Team All-American after setting career highs with 81 receptions (third in Pac-12) with 1,364 yards (sixth in NCAA and second in Pac-12) and 11 touchdowns. The Corona, Calif., native averaged 16.8 yards per catch in 2012, good for second in the Pac-12.

To make room on the roster, the Raiders have waived WR Milton Williams III.
