ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Rams agreed to terms Sunday with cornerback Tye Hill, their first-round pick and the 15th overall selection in the draft.
Contract terms were not immediately available for Hill, who missed the first six practices. Coach Scott Linehan said the Rams would get the former Clemson player to training camp as soon as possible and expected him on the field for the first of two workouts on Monday.
Linehan found out that the deal had been finalized about 20 minutes into Sunday's afternoon practice. He said Hill also had a lot of remedial work ahead of him.
"He's got to catch up," Linehan said. "Those other guys have taken full advantage of their opportunity to get a head start.
"Tye's going to have to spend some extra time, but we're certainly glad to get it done, and we're happy both sides were able to get it done."
