Buzz: Will Hill could be released by Giants

The Giants knew they were taking a huge chance when they signed beleaguered safety Will Hill in May of 2012. The West Orange native out of Urban Meyer’s Florida program has displayed a world of talent on the field but encountered a world of trouble off it.

Since making the team in September of 2012, Hill has been slapped with two separate four game suspensions by the NFL for violating their substance abuse policy. Getting caught a third time would not be a charm for Hill or the Giants….From Rotoworld:

Hill was arrested on December 20 on a warrant related to being more than $9,000 behind on child support. The Newark-Star Ledger was recently informed that officers detected a strong odor of marijuana in the vehicle Hill was driving. Hill has served two separate four-game suspensions since he entered the league. The next, we believe, would be an eight-game ban. Some believe the Giants could release Hill, even after he had a breakout season in 2013.

That would be a shame. Hill has turned into one of the Giants’ most productive players as well as one of the league’s best DBs an ST players. But …..the Giants would have little choice but to part ways with Hill should he get sacked for eight games in the upcoming season.

The Giants cannot be expected to carry Hill, or any other player, who cannot stay within the rules. It is frustrating, but he leaves them no choice. Just another thing that has gone wrong for Big Blue of late.

They may just decide to bring back Stevie Brown, who missed all of this season with a knee injury.

The Giants have reached in the draft and with some signings that were risks because of off the field issues.  Worked with Bradshaw, not so much Hill.  He has talked openly about his off the field antics and how he has matured.  Guess not.  Can't rely on guys like this.  Giants need players that can sty on the field.

If Stevie Brown comes back for his injury OK, I see Hill being expendable.

sometimes character can be as important as talent it seems the jints have lost sight of that fact among other things.

I hope they keep him. If not trade him to Denver for picks and weed?

Unfortunately his lifelong use of Marijuna will lead to his loss of a job.  But for a third time the same issue is simply inexcusable.  He needs to be cut and then not picked up by any other club for this season.  I do not believe in third and fourth chances.  He is simply not a professional.  His actions tell the whole story and players like him lose a career opportunity to get high.  Probably needs a strong role model to go straight but where can that be found???????
