Rookie RB Michael Hill, who has been on the Packers’ practice squad since Week 1 and was signed to the active roster on Monday, didn’t know about his “promotion” until he showed up for work on Monday, saw his name on the depth chart, and then went into the meeting room to find a contract waiting for his signature.
“I just signed my contract right there,” Hill said. “It was awesome.”
Hill said he believes he has caught the coaches’ eyes in Green Bay with his pass-protection skills. That’s what the San Diego Chargers coaching staff liked best about him when they released him, he said, and it’s an area of strength he has carried forward from his college days at Missouri Western.
“I actually called the protection calls for our offense and I communicated with the linemen,” Hill said. “It was just us communicating together, so that really prepared me for this.”
