Falcons Acquire CB Hill from Rams

By  | 

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams have traded former first-round draft pick Tye Hill to Atlanta for an undisclosed draft pick.

Rams general manager Billy Devaney announced the trade Tuesday.

Hill, a cornerback drafted in 2006, missed the final eight games of the 2007 season with a broken bone in his back. Last season, a knee injury forced him to miss the final 12 games.

Meanwhile, the Rams on Tuesday cut their 2006 second-round pick, tight end Joe Klopfenstein. In three seasons, Klopfenstein had 33 catches for 386 yards and two touchdowns.

Also released were three undrafted rookies, center Daniel Sanders, cornerback Marcus Brown and wide receiver Jarrett Byers.
