Tye Hill-DB- Falcons Sep. 1 - 12:12 pm et
   
 
Falcons acquired CB Tye Hill from the Rams in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick.

A change of scenery can't hurt, but Hill needs to repair his confidence after three years of getting consistently burned in St. Louis. It says a lot that the Rams, already thin at corner, would give up on the 27-year-old for so little after he lined up with the first-team defense all of camp. Hill will push LCB Brent Grimes, Chevis Jackson, and rookie Chris Owens for snaps in Atlanta.

Panthers acquired DT Louis Leonard from the Browns for an undisclosed draft pick.

Leonard was an undrafted free agent out of Fresno State in 2007. He's bounced around since, but has size (6'4/330) Carolina is desperate for inside. Still, he won't save what we expect to be one of the NFL's worst run defenses.

I suspect Atlanta may be looking at Hill to play free safety as 2009 pick William Moore is struggling with injuries and 2008 pick Thomas Decoud isn't doing anything.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Man Tye Hill was a HUGE bust for saint louis, top 20 pick to be traded for a seventh rounder 3 years later? ouch.

So they trade for a poor mans Deangelo Hall. Cool, with all that speed he has there is no excuse for getting burnt like he has been.

They play cover two so all they really needed was some speed back there. If he can't tackle or stay discipline and cover a zone we'll he'll be out the league next year.
