Hill said he has drawn interest from the Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings. He prefers the Redskins because of his past relationship with Schottenheimer. The team could use a No. 3 RB because they are not looking to re-sign free agent Adrian Murrell. Another player trying out, P Rick Tuten, looked good too.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that while RB Marshall Faulk sat out of minicamp, RB Greg Hill stepped up and played well. "We know what Greg Hill can do," Rams coach Dick Vermeil said. "Hey, I'm excited about Greg Hill being healthy and ready to go." Hill knows that once Faulk has his contract extended that things will change for him. "This is the NFL," Hill said. "It stands for Not For Long. So whatever I do, wherever I go, I know my best is a whole lot better than most people are doing right now. And for a team to have two horses in the backfield, that's just a plus for the Rams."

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that Rams coach Dick Vermeil had nothing but praise for RB Robert Holcombe after the team's last minicamp. "Robert Holcombe is a different kid today than he was a year ago," Vermeil said. "He's calmed down a little bit. He's so wound tight, so intense, that sometimes it's a negative. I think he's so much more aware, more understanding of how you've got to run the ball in the NFL and these kind of things. I've been impressed with his improvement." Where that leaves Holcombe on the depth chart is yet to be seen, as Marshall Faulk and Greg Hill are certainly ahead of him.
