Report: Will Hill likely "done" with Giants after failing third drug test


New York Giants safety Will Hill was entering 2014 with a great chance to be a starter on the team’s new-look defense. However, Fox Sports’ Mike Garafolo reported early Tuesday morning that the 24-year-old safety has failed another drug test and is facing a suspension for the third straight year.

As a result, per the New York Daily News‘ Ralph Vacchiano, the Giants are understandably “livid” with their third-year player and his career as a member of Big Blue is likely “done.”

Hill could be looking at a suspension as a long as a full season, though one source told Vacchiano the suspension would not be that long. Still, he could be looking at a suspension ranging from six to eight games and that’s not likely to be something the Giants are willing to stick around for.

Hill is coming off a strong 2013 campaign in New York, during which he appeared in 12 games, starting nine. He recorded 77 tackles, two interceptions and one 38-yard touchdown return. With 2012 starter Stevie Brown still recovering from a torn ACL suffered during the preseason last year, Hill had a good shot at being the starting free safety alongside veteran Antrel Rolle. That does not appear quite as likely anymore.
