Panthers sign WR Stephen Hill to practice squad

The Carolina Panthers announced today via Twitter that they signed wide receiver Stephen Hill to their practice squad, and they have removed linebacker D.J. Smith.

Stephen Hill spent the first two seasons of his NFL career with the New York Jets. Hill has certainly underwhelmed thus far in his pro football career. The Jets had high hopes for Hill when he entered the league in 2012—now he resides on the Panthers practice squad.
