The Vikings just lost cornerback Holton Hill for their first four games of the 2019 season.
The rookie, who was picked up as an undrafted free agent in April 2018, was handed a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, the league announced Friday.
Hill, 22, was considered one of the top undrafted free agents in this year’s rookie class.
After getting picked up by the Vikings, he received a $15,000 signing bonus and $60,000 in base salary guarantees.
He had an interception and seven passes defensed for Minnesota during the 2018 season.
Hill spent three seasons at Texas before declaring for the 2018 draft. He played in 17 games in his first two seasons as a Longhorn. In his junior year, Hill started the first nine games, but his year ended in early November after he was suspended for a violation of team rules.
He tallied 122 total tackles in his collegiate career. Hill also had three interceptions and three defensive touchdowns for the Longhorns.
