The Jets will waive wide receiver Stephen Hill this afternoon if they are unable to find a last-minute trade partner, The Post has learned.
The 2012 second-round pick never developed like the Jets had hoped. Hill battled knee injuries and inconsistency during his two-plus years with the Jets.
The team traded up to select Hill with the 43rd overall pick in 2012 out of run-heavy Georgia Tech. Despite being raw, he was given a starting job immediately. Hill had five catches for 89 yards and two touchdowns in his first NFL game, but would score just two more in the next two years.
