Will Hill waived by the New York Giants


Will Hill either has very bad luck or very bad friends. Either way, he’ll need something to change if he wants another job in the NFL. For now, he’s a free agent. The New York Giants announced per their website that safety Will Hill has been waived after he was suspended for the first six games of the upcoming 2014 season for violating the NFL’s PED policy. Hill had missed the first four games of the 2013 season after a similar failure.

It’s a cruel world in which second hand smoke can be so powerful, but that’s Hill’s claim after his latest disciplinary action. According to Pro Football Talk, Hill told friend and former teammate Deon Grant that his latest suspension was one big misunderstanding.

“It was an incident in a club where people were [smoking marijuana] and it got in my system.  It’s not like how my urine was a certain kind of way before when I did do it.  It’s the total opposite right now.”

Hill’s defense would probably appear more apt to the casual eye if it wasn’t possibly the most used excuse for a failed drug test ever. Even if you give Hill the benefit of the doubt, it’s tough to trust the intentions of a repeat offender. We all make mistakes and sometimes our friends goad us into stupid situations. Such is life. But when you know the rules in a league as strict as the NFL and allow yourself to skirt them anyways, it should come as no surprise when the hammer falls.

When your livelihood depends on you not having THC in your pee, perhaps caution should be more heavily employed. Now Hill has to hope that some NFL team is willing to overlook some caution of their own and sign Hill to least play the last ten games of the 2014 NFL season.
