Giants Safety Will Hill Suspended 6 Games by the NFL

Giants Safety Will Hill Suspended 6 Games by the NFL

Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- New York Giants safety Will Hill has been suspended for the first six games of the 2014 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Hill tried to appeal the decision, but was ultimately denied. The NFL could have suspended him for the entire season, so he is fortunate that his suspension was merely six games.

This is Hill's third suspension by the NFL. In October 2012, Hill was suspended by the league for testing positive for a performance enhancing subject which was later revealed as adderall.

The third came back in 2013 when Hill was suspended four games for violating the substance-abuse policy. He admitted the positive test was for marijuana.

Despite his immense talent, Hill has had trouble staying on the field during his brief NFL career.

In 12 games for the Giants last season, Hill recorded 77 tackles along with two interceptions.

Other than the initial announcement, the Giants declined further comment on the situation.

Giants Release Quarterback Josh Freeman

Giants Release Quarterback Josh Freeman

Marc Serota/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Josh Freeman era is already over in New York as the Giants have cut the quarterback just six weeks after signing him as a backup to starter Eli Manning.

With Manning back practicing at OTA's the team now has three healthy quarterbacks in he, Curtis Painter, and Ryan Nassib.

Not too long ago, Freeman was considered one of the up-and-coming stars in the NFL after he was selected in the first-round of the 2009 Draft out of Kansas State by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Last season, he feuded with head coach Greg Schiano before he was ultimately released mid-season. He wound up signing with the Minnesota Vikings, but started just one game for the team, which happen to come against the Giants.

Freeman's lack of ability to learn the Vikings offense did him in with Minnesota, and reportedly, Freeman had trouble picking up the Giants offense as well.

 Still just 26-years-old, Freeman has thrown 80 touchdowns during his career, but has also thrown 67 interceptions.
