Free agent S Will Hill has signed with the Arena League's Arizona Rattlers.
Hill was suspended six games for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy last week, and was waived by the Giants on Monday. He'll stay fresh in the Arena League until he's able to return to the NFL in Week 7. Despite all the off-field issues, we'd be surprised if Hill's NFL career is over. He's 24 years old.

Former Giants S Will Hill passed through waivers unclaimed.

That's despite a bargain-basement $570,000 salary. Suspended for the first six games of the season, Hill's ability should earn him a deal once his ban is through.
Jun 3 - 5:47 PM

Giants waived S Will Hill.

As beat writer Jordan Raanan notes, the Giants simply can't trust Hill to make the right decisions. He's been suspended three times since entering the league in 2012, including a six-game ban this year for another violation of the substance abuse policy. They'll roll with Stevie Brown at free safety and Antrel Rolle at strong safety. Hill's very significant on-field ability will make him a worthwhile risk for a team just in case he ever gets his head on straight. He was Pro Football Focus' No. 2 overall safety last season.

The Giants "may not welcome back" S Will Hill after his six-game suspension.

Hill has been suspended three times since entering the league in 2012. The New York Post's Paul Schwartz believes "it's almost definite" this third strike will be his last one with the Giants. Hill is an impact safety when on the field and could provide a starting option in Week 7 if the Giants decide to keep him. Stevie Brown is set to replace Hill at free safety opposite Antrel Rolle.
May 30 - 5:59 PM

NFL suspended Giants S Will Hill six games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Hill tried appealing the ban, but came up short and he'll be sidelined until Week 7. Hill has now been suspended three times since being signed by the Giants as a UDFA out of Florida in 2012. A high-impact performer when available for games, 24-year-old Hill graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 2 overall safety in 2013, behind only Devin McCourty. The Giants will enter Week 1 with Stevie Brown starting at free safety, and Antrel Rolle on the strong side.

The Newark Star-Ledger thinks S Will Hill "looks like a goner" from the Giants.

It was recently announced that Hill failed yet another drug test -- his third in three seasons -- and is facing a lengthy suspension. Even though Hill has proven to be extremely talented, he's not worth the headache. The Giants had plenty of safety depth even before drafting Nat Berhe over the weekend.
May 13 - 9:03 AM

The New York Daily News reports FS Will Hill is likely "done" with the Giants after failing another drug test.

Hill is facing a lengthy suspension, one that could cost him 6-8 games or an entire calendar year. It'll be Hill's third suspension in as many seasons, though he does plan to appeal. Whether he wins that appeal or not isn't expected to matter in terms of saving his job with the Giants. The team is reportedly "livid" at Hill's continued drug issues. He was PFF's No. 2 overall safety in 2013.
Apr 22 - 10:23 AM

Giants FS Will Hill is facing another suspension for violating the league's drug policy.

Hill has been suspended in each of his first two seasons, one for violating the PED policy and the other for illegal substances. The troubled former Florida Gator has reportedly failed another drug test and could be facing a yearlong ban. Hill has admitted in the past that he enjoys smoking marijuana. He has gobs of talent but may not be in the league much longer if he continues to blaze up.
Apr 22 - 9:12 AM

Giants FS Will Hill could face a third drug suspension in as many seasons during 2014.

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.
Jan 4 - 10:12 AM

Giants FS Will Hill was arrested Friday night on a warrant related to child support.

The Giants are calling the incident a "personal matter." Hill made the trip to Detroit with the team on Saturday and is still expected to start against the Lions.

ESPN Giants blogger Dan Graziano writes the team "really believes they have a good player" in S Will Hill.

Hill has come a long way. Nobody has ever doubted his talent. He was a five-star recruit when he committed to Florida. Hill then had numerous off-field issues and went undrafted in 2011. He's served two separate four-game suspensions in the NFL. But he's showed up on the field in 2013, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 7 overall safety. Hill has been one of the lone bright spots for the G-Men and could make Antrel Rolle expendable in the offseason.

Suspended Giants S Will Hill admitted that his four-game substance-abuse ban was the result of "multiple" failed marijuana tests.

Hill opened up and said that he even spent a month in a rehab clinic. He's been an off-field mess ever since his days at Florida. Hill is competing for the No. 4 safety job in New York, but he's skating on very thin ice.
Sun, Jul 28, 2013 12:03:00 PM

NFL suspended Giants S Will Hill four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

He tested positive for marijuana. Hill was suspended four games last season for violating the league's policy on PEDs, but this one is for substance abuse. He's competing to be the Giants' No. 4 safety and will be eligible to return in Week 5 against the Eagles. In all likelihood, GM Jerry Reese will strongly considering severing ties with Hill, who went undrafted out of Florida in 2011 due to severe off-field red flags.
Sat, Jul 20, 2013 02:10:00 PM

Giants activated S Will Hill from the reserve/suspended list.

Hill was suspended for testing positive for the ever-increasingly popular Adderall. Cornerback Michael Coe (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve in a corresponding move. Hill will step back into a reserve role.

Giants S Will Hill has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Hill has adopted the hot new PED excuse, claiming his positive test was triggered by the prescription-drug Adderall. Regardless of what Hill tested positive for, he was a character nightmare before foregoing his senior year at Florida in 2011, and couldn't get so much as an NFL workout before the Giants took him on in May. Seeing time at both corner and safety, Hill will be eligible to return in Week 10.
