start exploring

Former running back for the Cincinnati Bengals, Jeremy Hill, has announced his retirement from football.

Hill, drafted by the Bengals in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft out of LSU,

rushed for 1,124 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie and scored the lone touchdown in a playoff defeat.

The following season, he rushed for eleven touchdowns before his infamous postseason fumble against the Steelers.

After the 2017 season, Hill joined the Patriots for their Super Bowl victory before briefly joining the Raiders in 2020. 

Prior to this announcement, he attempted a temporary football comeback in late 2022 with the XFL.

Hill shared the following caption on the post:

"Unfortunately, due to the injuries I sustained on September 9, 2018, I will no longer be pursuing a career in professional football. 

That's right, I'm retiring from the game that we all love so dearly.

It's been a hell of a journey, and I couldn't have come close to enjoying it without the support of my family,

especially my mother, my coaches, and all the great teammates I was blessed to play with. 

Now the fun part of my life begins, but in the meantime I will do everything in my power to assist the next generation in our game so that we can all continue to enjoy our great sport for generations to come."
