New York Giants' Will Hill suspended again by NFL

Will Hill - Mark L. Baer-US PRESSWIRE

Will Hill will serve his second four-game suspension in as many seasons during the first four games of 2013.

New York Giants safety Will Hill has been suspended by the NFL for "violating the NFL's Policy on 'substances of abuse' ", according Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

Hill also served a four-game suspension last season for violating the NFL's policy on PEDs. He claimed at the time the substance was Adderall, the same substance Giants safety Tyler Sash served a four-game suspension for using.

Hill made the Giants two seasons as an undrafted free agent out of Florida, overcoming a troubled backgroundd to earn a chance in the NFL.Hill had 38 tackles, two passes defensed and a forced fumble last season.

During training camp a year ago HIll spoke to reporters about his troubled life up to that point, and seemed to be pointed in the right direction.

"I had dark times. I know what’s on the other side and I don’t want to go back," he said.

Without the details of exactly what Hill was suspended for it might be unfair to draw any conclusions. It does, however, make you wonder which direction Hill's career is headed in. The Giants gave him a chance when it seemed no one else would, and stuck with him after last season's suspension. How many more opportunities will they give him?

In an odd twist, perhaps this makes it easier for Sash, who would seem to be on the roster bubble this season, to make the 53-man roster.
