​The Minnesota Vikings did not lose many pieces to their defense this off-season, which is just two years removed from being the league's best unit.


A big part of their success was do to the play of their ​secondary, which lost a backup to suspension today. Holton Hill, a reserve cornerback, has been suspended for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. He'll miss the first four games of the upcoming season.

​​Hill's PED suspension will be without pay. However, he is eligible to participate in all offseason activities, including preseason games. 

Hill is coming off of his first season in the NFL after going undrafted out of the University of Texas. He appeared in all 16 of the ​Vikings' games. He made three starts, registering 36 tackles and one tackle for loss. He also had one interception to go along with seven passes defensed.
