According to FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer, Atlanta traded seventh-round pick in next year's draft for Hill.
Hill, 5-10, 185 pounds, enters his fourth season in the NFL after being selected as a first round (15th overall) draft choice by the Rams in 2006. A starter in 21 of 28 career games played, he has totaled 94 tackles (79 solo), four interceptions, 15 passes defensed, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble.
As a rookie, Hill started 10 of 16 contests and finished the season with 42 tackles (33 solo), a team-high three interceptions, four passes defensed and one fumble recovery. His three interceptions in 2006 are the most by a Rams rookie since LB Pisa Tinosamoa finished with three in 2003. For his performance that season, Hill earned All-Rookie honors from Pro Football Weekly and the Professional Football Writers of America.
Hill entered the 2008 campaign as the starting left cornerback and tied his career-high of six solo tackles on two occasions along with posting his first career forced fumble. After starting the first four contests, he suffered a knee injury in Week 4 against Buffalo, which sidelined the Clemson University graduate for the rest of the season.
Hill, while talented, dealt with various injuries over the past two seasons which caused him to miss 20 games. Still, Hill should start right away opposite third-year CB Chris Houston and prove to be an immediate upgrade over Brent Grimes, who had been starting.
For St. Louis, Hill's departure will give younger cornerbacks such as Jonathan Wade, Justin King, and Bradley Fletcher a shot at more playing time.
