Apologetic Jayron Hosley: 'I made a mistake'

Giants cornerback addresses four-game suspension

An apologetic Jayron Hosley spoke to reporters Thursday after the New York Giants OTA at Quest Diagnostics Training Center., one day after the NFL suspended Hosley four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

"I made a mistake. There's a consequence for everything that you do," Hosley said. "Ive got to be man enough to accept them and move on."

Hosley said the violation occurred last and he had been trying to appeal a suspension.

"The ball didn't bounce my way. Right now it's about dealing with the issue and moving on," Hosley said.

The third-year corner from Virginia Tech knows the Giants added several players at his position this offseason, and that his status on the depth chart could be impacted.

"They've gotta make the proper moves for the team," Hosley said. "There's a consequence for everything. From this point on I'm basically working my way back up."

Hosley is eligible to return for the Giants fifth game.
