Mike Hilton continues to play great. Even coming back from injury, he has played quite exceptionally. The beauty of the Mike Hilton saga in Pittsburgh is that we ended up plucking him off of the New England Patriots practice squad.
He also does quite decent coming off the edge and Blitz situations. He has a total of 9.5 sacks in his career which is a very good number for a slot corner. He has a total of 3 on the season.
It seems as if Mike Hilton is aging like fine wine and getting better and better every year. He has to be in the top consideration for top-slot corner for sure. Hopefully he gets a Pro Bowl nod this year. He very much deserves the recognition.
The Steelers are going to have their hands full trying to find a way to pay all their Free Agents this coming offseason. They have players such as Conner, Dupree, Smith-Schuster and more. I firmly believe that Mike Hilton deserves a nod as well. He has played very well and hopefully he gets compensated for it.
