After the first week of OTA’s, there are a lot of positions still up for grabs, but one seems to be ever closer to having a definitive starter – Safety.
The New York Giants have just announced via the team’s website that Safety Will Hill has been waived by the team. We’ve just discussed the role of Stevie Brown as the possible starting safety after having a full recovery from the 2013 ACL injury he suffered and the need for him to perform well in order to replace Will. I guess that discussion is no longer needed.
Will Hill was suspended by the NFL for violating the league’s policy and program for substances of abuse and reportedly told friends that he got an unfair treatment, considering he got suspended because of second-hand smoking.
Apparently that didn’t matter for the Giants front office. May Stevie Brown keep performing well.
Original from the Giants website:
” The Giants today waived safety Will Hill, who played in 24 games with 10 starts for the team over the past two seasons.
Hill was signed by the Giants as a free agent in 2012, and over the past two seasons, his statistics are 100 tackles (87 solo), two interceptions returned for 38 yards with a touchdown, five passes defensed, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries, plus 26 special teams tackles.”
