Former Cincinnati Bengals running back Jeremy Hill has officially announced his retirement from football.
Hill, a second-round pick by the Bengals out of LSU in 2014, rushed for 1,124 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie and scored the lone touchdown in a playoff loss. The year after, he rushed for 11 scores before the now-infamous playoff fumble against the Steelers.
After the 2017 season, Hill joined New England for the Super Bowl win and in 2020 briefly joined the Raiders. He attempted a brief football comeback in late 2022 via the XFL before this announcement.
Hill shared the following caption on the post:
“Unfortunately due to the injuries I sustained September 9, 2018, I will no longer be pursuing my career in professional football, that’s right I’m retiring from the game that we all love so dearly, it’s been one hell of a journey and I wouldn’t have been close to enjoying it without my family specifically my Mother, my coaches and all the great teammates I was blessed to play with. Now the fun part of life starts for me but in the mean time I will be doing everything in my power to help the next generation in our game so we all can continue to enjoy our great sport for decades to come.”
