EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — It was only a matter of time.
The New York Giants waived suspended safety Will Hill on Monday.
Hill was suspended by the NFL last week for six games in the upcoming season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. He missed the opening four games of 2013 while under a similar suspension.
Signed by the Giants as a free agent in 2012, Hill played in 24 games for the team. He had no starts as a rookie, but made 10 starts last season. In his career, he returned one of his two interceptions for a touchdown and also played on special teams.
A New Jersey native, Hill went undrafted out of Florida in 2012, in part because of off-field issues.
