Holton Hill, cornerback for Minnesota Vikings was suspended for the first 4-games of the season because of NFL policy violation on performance-enhancing drugs.
Hill’s punishment was announced on Friday by the National Football League. The statement reads:
“Holton Hill of the Minnesota Vikings has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2019 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances. Hill is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.”NFL Spokesperson
Having joined Vikings as an undrafted free agent last off-season, Hill played in all 16 of his rookie year because of injuries to starters Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes. He was considered during his college years as one of the top cornerback talents in the league, but due to a report by NFL of him testing positive for marijuana, he went undrafted.
It has to be seen where he will fit into the training squad and the starting lineup when he is off his suspension.
