Free agent TE Anthony Hill will visit the Steelers Tuesday.
A fourth-round pick of the Texans in 2009, Hill has appeared in just 12 career games, making only three catches for 19 yards. He boasts enormous size at 6-foot-6, 278 pounds, but has primarily been a blocker. At best, he'd be a camp body for the Steelers. Tue, Mar 20, 2012 08:34:00 AM

Date:

Colts signed TE Anthony Hill off the Eagles' practice squad.

With both Dallas Clark (leg) and Brody Eldridge (hand) out indefinitely, the Colts are scrounging for tight end help. Hill, at 6'6/277, will serve as the blocking complement to Jacob Tamme going forward.

Texans activated TE Anthony Hill (knee) from the PUP list.

The blocking specialist tore his ACL for the second time a year ago. Expect Hill to contribute on special teams if he's active on game days. He'll be no better than fourth on the depth chart at tight end.
Tue, Nov 30, 2010 05:18:00 PM

Texans TE Anthony Hill will practice Wednesday for the first time since tearing his ACL last December.

Hill will have to prove that he's healthy in practice, or the Texans will be forced to place him on injured reserve as opposed to activating him from the PUP list. The 2009 fourth-rounder is known mainly as a blocking specialist.
Tue, Nov 9, 2010 10:25:00 PM

Texans placed TE Anthony Hill (knee) on the reserve/PUP list.

He can return in Week 7, though the Texans are so deep at tight end that they may not need him. Hill was drafted in the 2009 fourth round as a blocking tight end for the future. He's had bad knees dating back to N.C. State.
Fri, Sep 3, 2010 11:21:00 PM

Texans TE Anthony Hill (ACL surgery) may miss all of training camp.

We didn't expect him back for Week 1 in the first place. A 2009 fourth-round pick, Hill was drafted mainly to be a blocker. He's a PUP candidate.
Wed, May 26, 2010 01:15:00 PM

Texans rookie TE Anthony Hill is done for the year after tearing his ACL in the team's Week 14 win over Seattle.

A fourth-round pick out of N.C. State, Hill's rookie season ends with one catch for nine yards in just five appearances. He was unable to crack the game-day roster before Owen Daniels' season-ending injury at midyear. Hill also tore his ACL as a junior for the Wolfpack, and this is the same knee. "He's got a long road ahead of him," coach Gary Kubiak admitted.
Mon, Dec 14, 2009 04:48:00 PM

Texans rookie TE Anthony Hill will be active for the first time this week thanks to Owen Daniels' and James Casey's injuries.

Hill, the team's fourth-round pick this season, is more of a blocker than a pass-catcher. He'll play behind Joel Dreessen and won't have fantasy value this season, although he may eventually have some upside as a receiver.
Thu, Nov 5, 2009 10:52:00 AM

Texans coach Gary Kubiak revealed Friday that TE Anthony Hill has been diagnosed with Swine Flu.

"Swine Flu" sounds bad, but it isn't with proper and quick treatment. Hill was originally diagnosed with pneumonia. The rookie is probably day to day.
Fri, Oct 2, 2009 01:29:00 PM

Texans rookie TE Anthony Hill has been hospitalized with pneumonia.

The Texans haven't given a timetable for his release. Hill hasn't been active in the first three weeks, and he won't be available this week either.
Thu, Oct 1, 2009 07:25:00 PM

Texans signed fourth-round TE Anthony Hill to a four-year, $2.2065 million contract.

Hill was reputed to be one of the best blocking tight ends in the draft, but he's also showcased nice pass catching ability in OTAs. He won't be a fantasy factor as long as Owen Daniels around, but will help in the run game and give the Texans a viable every-down option if Daniels gets injured.
Wed, Jun 17, 2009 06:18:00 PM

Fourth-rounder Anthony Hill is expected to take on Mark Bruener's former role as the Texans' blocking tight end.

Hill isn't without pass catching ability, but he was one of the best blocking tight ends available this year. Hill will compete with Joel Dreessen and fellow rookie James Casey to be the second tight end. Casey has a higher fantasy ceiling, but won't play much behind Owen Daniels.
Mon, May 18, 2009 08:39:00 AM

Texans selected NC State TE Anthony Hill with the No. 122 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

This gives Houston some protection against Owen Daniels, who still hasn't signed his restricted free agent tender. Hill's initial impact will come in the running game, but he is an underrated pass catcher. Had he not torn his ACL in 2007, Hill could've been a first-day prospect.
