Biography

 
PRO: Sammie Hill was a priority free agent target during the 2013 offseason for a Titans defense that was looking to get bigger in the trenches and improve against the run.  The 6-foot-4-inch, 329-pounder is a good athlete with outstanding size and long arms that will provide a large presence on the Titans’ defensive front. The Stillman product is quick and agile, but also is stout at the point of attack.  He arrived in Tennessee after playing the first four seasons of his career as a member of the Detroit Lions.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•     In his first season with the Titans in 2013, Hill saw action in 13 games with 10 starts at defensive tackle and tallied career-highs with 40 tackles and seven passes defensed.
•     In 2011, appeared in all 16 games for the first time in his career and registered 24 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.  
•     In 2010, saw action in 15 games and recorded a career-high 30 tackles, 2.5 sacks for 18 yards and a fumble recovery.
•     In his first pro season in 2009, Hill played 13 games with 12 starts at defensive tackle. The fourth-round pick earned one of the team’s starting defensive tackle positions to start his rookie campaign.

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•     At Stillman, Hill and two college teammates were heroic in their efforts to save a man from a burning house. The three Stillman players were driving by a house when they noticed a distressed woman who needed help. She told Hill and his teammates that her father was inside and they proceeded to rescue him from the burning building.
•     In the offseason, Hill likes to go home to visit family and friends.  By joining the Titans, he is now just a short three-hour ride from his hometown of West Blocton, Ala.
•     Hill is a big collector of hats and shoes. His favorite hat is his St. Louis Cardinals hat, and his favorite shoe is the Nike Air Force One.

CAREER TRANSACTIONS:  
•    The West Blocton, Ala., native was originally selected by the Detroit Lions in the fourth round (115th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft.

Was a first-team All-SIAC selection after collecting 52 tackles, 4.5 sacks and 14 tackles for loss.  Also caused four fumbles.  Took an interception back 38 yards for a touchdown after dropping back into coverage as a giant middle linebacker.
