2014 would have marked Hill’s third season.
The New York Giants released S Will Hill.

Hill, who has two years of NFL experience under his belt, is currently serving a six-game suspension. The recent ban marks his third career suspension, all stemming from drug violations.
In 2013, Hill produced 60 tackles, two interceptions, a touchdown, and two forced fumbles. However, Hill’s off-the-field concerns clearly override his talents on the gridiron.
Hill needs to sign with a franchise possessing depth stability at the safety position. Hill’s career could collapse as easily as it could rebound from the recent suspension, but regardless, the safety should be in a situation where he has to work into a starting lineup.
The suspensions will certainly take a toll on Hill’s next contract, as will his playing time.
