The New York Jets cut third-year wide receiver Stephen Hill on Saturday as part of their process to meet the league-mandated 53-man roster limit.
It wasn’t necessarily a surprising move in the grand scheme of things. Hill, who was a highly-regarded prospect heading into the 2012 NFL draft, fell to the Jets in the second round that April. For a team that had struggled a great...
