Despite rules being put in place to eliminate it, the most exciting NFL plays for fans often feature big hits. It's often linebackers that put these hard-hitting shots on ball carriers, but occasionally safeties get in on the action.

That is exactly what happened here with then-Baltimore Ravens safety Will Hill, when he body-slammed a Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver.

Second-year quarterback Blake Bortles faked one way, then dished the ball over to wide receiver Bryan Walters, who had blockers set up in front of him. He quickly found a lane and picked up enough yards for the first down, but Hill was sifting through traffic coming up to stop the play.

Hill hit Walters low, stopping him in his tracks, but he did not go down. So, Hill rose up and lifted Walters off the ground, then slammed him into the grass, resembling something he likely saw on WrestleMania at some point.

The Ravens safety totaled four tackles on the day, but his team ended up losing 22-20. This would be Hill's final season in the NFL, to this point, though he has had stints with both the AAF and XFL, as well as playing a season up in Canada.
