The Las Vegas Raiders plan to sign free-agent running back Jeremy Hill after hosting him for a visit Friday, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Hill didn't play in 2019 and also missed most of the 2018 campaign. He still needs to pass his physical and undergo a COVID-19 test.

The Cincinnati Bengals selected the running back in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He produced a 1,124-yard, nine-touchdown rookie season and racked up another 1,633 yards and 20 touchdowns over the following two years.

Joe Mixon's arrival pushed Hill down the depth chart in 2017, and he finished the season on injured reserve due to an ankle ailment.

Hill joined the New England Patriots for 2018 but suffered a torn ACL in Week 1.

The Raiders have an established starter in sophomore Josh Jacobs but are in need of additional depth with Devontae Booker currently on reserve/COVID-19.

Players sent to the new reserve list either tested positive for the coronavirus or were in close proximity to someone who tested positive.
