Well, at least, Jeremy Hill can say he was a Las Vegas Raider longer than P.J. Hall was a Minnesota Viking.
Veteran running back Hill has been released by the Raiders, as The Athletic reported on Wednesday.

PJ Hall, of course, was traded by the Raiders to the Minnesota Vikings on Monday. On Tuesday, he failed his physical with the Vikings and was reverted back to the Raiders, who promptly cut the 2018 second-round pick.
As for Hill, he was was signed Sunday and his release came a day after the Raiders activated fellow backup running back Devontae Booker from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Booker, signed this offseason as a free agent from Denver, was placed on the list Thursday and the Raiders quickly began a pursuit of Hill. The former Cincinnati Bengals’ standout last played in 2018 with the New England Patriots.
The Raiders have a couple of open spots, so expect them to continue to tinker with the bottom of the roster.
