Former Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman Rashod Hill was released by the Washington Commanders on Tuesday, according to his agent.

After six seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, veteran offensive lineman Rashod Hill wound up signing with the Washington Commanders earlier this year.

Unfortunately for Hill, his time with the Commanders has already come to an end after only being with the team for less than two months.

On Tuesday, the veteran blocker’s agent, Brett Tessler, revealed that his client has been released by Washington. Hill, who is currently 30-years-old, will have to find a new team now if he wants to continue his NFL career this season.

Following his release by the Washington Commanders, should the Minnesota Vikings bring Rashod Hill back?

During his six years with the Vikings, Hill was used mostly as a utility offensive tackle, but he did wind up starting 22 games in his time in purple and gold. Of the more than 1,700 snaps that he was only on the field for Minnesota, 962 of them came at left tackle, and 768 of them came at right tackle according to PFF.

With Hill getting let go by the Commanders on Tuesday, is he someone that could potentially return to the Vikings for the upcoming 2022 season? In short, probably not.

Anything is possible, but Minnesota seems pretty set with their offensive tackles this year. Christian Darrisaw and Brian O’Neill are locked in as the Vikings’ starting tackles, and on the bench, Blake Brandel and possibly Jesse Davis will be used as the top backups for Darrisaw and O’Neill.

Given his experience level, Hill should still be able to find another team around the NFL to suit up for at some point this year. Just don’t bet on him returning to Minnesota.
