Saints re-signed OT Tony Hills.

He's taking the spot of P.J. Williams, who was placed on I.R. Hills will serve in a swing role behind Terron Armstead and Zach Strief.

Saints signed OT Tony Hills.

Jahri Evans just underwent a knee scope and ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett suspects Terron Armstead might be banged up as well, necessitating the need for offensive line depth. Hills was cut from the Ravens' practice squad a few weeks ago.

Raiders signed OT Tony Hills, formerly of the Bills.

A former fourth-round pick, Hills can also play both guard and tackle. He appeared in six games for the Colts last season, starting one. We wouldn't guess he's a candidate to start, but who knows in Oakland.

Bills released OT Tony Hills and waived WR Terrell Sinkfield, CB Don Unamba, and S Mark LeGree.

Hills, 28, didn't last a month on the roster, and the other three players were just camp bodies. First cuts aren't due for another two-plus weeks (August 27), but the Bills are getting a head start.

Bills signed OLs Tony Hills and Antoine Caldwell.

New Bills GM Doug Whaley knows Hills well, as he was in Pittsburgh when the Steelers made the former Texans Longhorn a fourth-round pick. Hill is a journeyman tackle. Caldwell has experience at both guard and center.

Broncos signed OL Tony Hills to a two-year contract.

Hills was moved inside to right guard in Steelers camp, but he ended losing his starting job and subsequently his roster spot. He'll take Herb Taylor's place as a backup in Denver.

Steelers waived OL Tony Hills, CB Crezdon Butler, P Jeremy Kapinos, and DE Jarrett Crittenton.

Hills and Butler are the two surprises. Hills was moved inside to right guard early in camp, only to lose the starting job to Doug Leguarsky. Last year's fifth-rounder, Butler was unable to push veteran Bryant McFadden off the roster.

Tony Hills has lost the starting right guard job to Doug Legursky.

After struggling in the third preseason game, the Steelers decided that Hills wasn't ready to convert to guard. The former tackle will now provide depth, with veteran C/G Legursky stepping in. Legursky, 6'1/315, is small for a guard but is well-versed in the Steelers' scheme.

The Steelers have moved OT Tony Hills inside to right guard.

Hills held his own at left tackle in the preseason opener, but the Steelers believe he's better suited for inside work. Hills was immediately inserted into the lineup Sunday and will likely push 2010 starter Ramon Foster for the starting job. The front office remains open to bringing back veteran Flozell Adams at left tackle.

Steelers agreed to terms with fourth-round pick Tony Hills on a three-year deal, according to Scout.com.

The deal is reportedly worth $1.45 million with a $304,500 signing bonus. Hills battled injuries throughout his time at Texas, but he has great feet at the base of his 6'6" frame. He was recruited out of high school as a tight end.
