Jayron Hosley’s suspension from 2013 failed test

Coming within days of the suspension and release of teammate Will Hill, the four-game suspension of Giants cornerback Jayron Hosley caught some off guard.

But the Giants and Hosley have known since last year, since Hosley was appealing a failed test during the 2013 season, before dropping that appeal this week.

“This was something that went on last season and I tried to appeal it,” Hosley said, via Jordan Raanan of NJ.com. “The ball didn’t bounce my way. I’m not going to sit here, like I said before, and go over all those things. Right now it’s about dealing with the issue and moving on, and not dwelling on what happened or could have happened. I apologized to my team and am moving on.”

Hosley apologized to his teammates and the organization, though he didn’t specify what the failed test was for. Hosley reported tested positive for marijuana prior to being drafted in the third round by the Giants in the 2012 NFL Draft.

“It’s disappointing as heck as you can imagine,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. “But you have to move on. Someone else has to step up and go.”

The next person to go might be Hosley himself. Cutting Hill after his third strike should have been construed as a sign, and the Giants signed corners Walter Thurmond and Zack Bowman this offseason, so Hosley’s roster spot is far from guaranteed.

    The Ryan Nassib era is not starting well for my Giants. So many players who were key players last year are gone. Brandon Myers and Hakeem Nicks. David Wilson, Will Hill, Jayron Hosley and Andre Brown. My man Justin Tuck. The two-time Super Bowl lockdown duo of Corey Webster and Aaron Ross. Eli Manning, David Baas and Will Beatty.

    The Giants need to bring back Tiki Barber. He’s a rested and respected leader who pushed the Giants to become Super Bowl champions. He’s the second best Giant ever after LT and the fourth best NFL RB ever after Jim Brown, Walter Payton and Barry Sanders. With Tiki’s guidance and leadership no one today would remember Eli Manning and Michael Strahan. He made those two guys into stars.

    Jayron’s days as a Giant are numbered. He’ll be released during training camp.

    When these kids can earn money unlike anything they could earn ANYWHERE else. Can a parent or agent not help and advise them the weed is not a good idea. It aint rocket science. AND when they have made the pro’s can someone not remind them that kids rightly or wrongly look up to them????
