Jets signed OT Corey Hilliard.

Hilliard is an eight-year veteran that missed most of last season with a Lisfranc injury. Much like last week's James Brewer signing, Hilliard will compete for a depth role.
Mar 24 - 11:28 AM

Free agent OT Corey Hilliard will visit the Jets.

Hilliard missed most of last season after suffering a Lisfranc injury in Week 1. An eight-year veteran, Hilliard is a competent swing tackle when healthy. His next contract will likely be a one-year deal.
Mar 19 - 9:50 AM

Lions placed OT Corey Hilliard on injured reserve with a foot injury, ending his season.

Hilliard played 63-of-68 snaps at right tackle Monday night after starter LaAdrian Waddle exited with a calf injury. Hilliard held his own against Mathias Kiwanuka. He was expected to be the Lions' swing tackle this season. UDFA Cornelius Lucas is next man up. OT Michael Williams is on the practice squad.

Corey Hilliard and LaAdrian Waddle have been splitting first-team reps at right tackle in the Lions' offseason program.

Hilliard lost the same battle to Jason Fox last season, but claimed the starting job in Week 2 after Fox went down with a groin injury. Hilliard then suffered a knee injury in Week 7, and couldn't reclaim the gig from Waddle upon returning to full health. Waddle is the favorite to start this season.

Lions declared RT Corey Hilliard, WR Nate Burleson, QB Kellen Moore, RB Mikel Leshoure, WR/KR Micheal Spurlock, CB Jonte Green and OG Leroy Harris inactive for Week 8 against the Cowboys.

Return man Spurlock is a healthy scratch. With Hilliard sidelined and Jason Fox (knee) ailing, the Lions are going with undrafted rookie LaAdrian Waddle at right tackle. LT Riley Reiff is playing through a hamstring injury, but is active and starting. Matthew Stafford's protection could be an issue today.

Lions RT Corey Hilliard is headed for an MRI on his knee Monday.

Hilliard went down in the fourth quarter and did not return. With LT Riley Reiff battling hamstring woes and Jason Fox (knee) out, the Lions offensive line is turning into a mess. Their only healthy tackle right now is undrafted rookie LaAdrian Waddle.

The Detroit Free Press considers the Lions' right-tackle job a "two-man competition" between Jason Fox and Corey Hilliard.

The duo combined for only one appearance last season. Hilliard has five career starts to Fox's zero. The Lions presumably want Fox to win the job after spending the offseason talking him up, but injuries have helped limit him to just five games since he was the No. 128 overall pick of the 2010 draft. The Lions recently hosted free agent Winston Justice for a visit, and could still add outside competition.
Tue, May 14, 2013 03:36:00 PM

Lions re-signed OT Corey Hilliard to a two-year contract.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Hilliard will get a shot at right tackle duties, but he appeared in zero games last season after playing just 151 snaps in 2011. A six-year veteran, Hilliard has made only five career starts. Riley Reiff and Jason Fox are both better bets to get the nod at right tackle.
Fri, Mar 1, 2013 09:46:00 AM

Lions re-signed restricted free agent OT Corey Hilliard to a one-year, $1.26 million contract.

Hilliard received the original pick tender. He has appeared in all 32 games the past two seasons, but made just five starts. Hilliard played 151 snaps in 2011, and graded out poorly as both a run and pass blocker by Pro Football Focus.

Lions signed OT Corey Hilliard off the Browns' practice squad.

Hilliard has bounced around the league since the Patriots drafted him in the sixth round in 2007. He is unlikely to make any impact down the stretch.
Wed, Dec 9, 2009 03:56:00 PM

Browns waived OT Corey Hilliard.

He figures to be re-signed to the practice squad.
Sun, Sep 6, 2009 07:04:00 PM

Browns signed OT Corey Hilliard, formerly of the Colts.

The 24-year-old almost certainly won't make it past September 5.
Mon, Aug 24, 2009 06:45:00 PM

Colts waived OT Corey Hilliard.

Hilliard notoriously allowed two of the three sacks to Peyton Manning in the opening drive of the Colts' first preseason game. He's athletic but obviously a work in progress.
Wed, Aug 19, 2009 12:53:00 PM

Patriots signed sixth-round T Corey Hilliard to a three-year contract.

Hilliard played both tackle spots at OSU and was a durable performer. He's athletic enough to make it in the NFL and may be a quality reserve some day.
