Giants waive safety Will Hill

Will Hill

After being suspended for six games due to his second violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy, and his third suspension since entering the league in 2012, Will Hill is out. The New York Giants announced today that just three days after the league suspended him for six games, that they have waived the safety who signed as undrafted free agent in 2012.

In 2013, Hill was one of the team’s best defensive backs, and although he only played 12 games, he had 77 tackles, two interceptions, and two forced fumbles. It’s sad for the incredibly talented Hill, who just isn’t reliable enough to keep on your roster until he keeps his nose clean.

Right now, there may not be many teams who pursue Hill, unless an injury takes place in their secondary, so he could go unclaimed on waivers. No matter when he’s signed, he’ll have to sit out his first six games with his new team. The question is, are there any teams willing enough to take the risk of this talented, yet, undisciplined safety?
