Just a handful of days after it was announced safety Will Hill would be suspended the first six games of 2014, in a not all that surprising move the Giants have decided to cut ties altogether.

Hill lost an appeal last week and was suspended the six games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
He’s failed three drug tests since signing as an undrafted free agent in 2012; this season would have been the third consecutive in which he began by serving a suspension.
Hill appeared in 24 games for the Giants. He came on strong down the stretch in 2013, recording 77 tackles and two interceptions in 12 games playing in place of the injured Stevie Brown. The third-year player was expected to compete with Brown for the starting free safety slot, but is now looking for work.
