The question of what the New York Giants would do with safety Will Hill has been answered. The Giants waived Hill following his third suspension in three seasons.

Hill Friday was suspended for six games for violating the league's substance abuse policy for the third straight season. He missed four games in both 2012 and 2013.

Hill, 24, was one of the best safeties in the NFL last season, starting 10 games. He had a team-best Pro Football Focus rating of +15.7. He made 81 tackles and had two interceptions in 12 games.

With Hill gone, the Giants starting safeties are Antrel Rolle and Stevie Brown. Quintin Demps, Cooper Taylor and rookie Nat Berhe are in reserve.

Especially considering our contentious debate over the weekend, this is certain to stir up a storm in the Giants' fan base. In this case, the Giants decided Hill's talent was not enough to overcome continual rules violations. Will they be right, or wrong? Only time will tell.

The floor is yours, Giants' fans.
