Will Hill goes unclaimed on waivers


No one wants Will Hill.

Hill, the safety who was waived by the Giants after the NFL suspended him six games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, went unclaimed on waivers.

That’s no surprise: Hill is now on his third NFL suspension, with one previous suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy and one for violating the league’s performance-enhancing substances policy. NFL teams probably figure that Hill just isn’t worth the trouble.

Still, Hill is a talented player who is only 24 years old and could be had for the league-minimum salary. It’s possible that some team will decide to give him another chance. If so, Hill would be eligible to participate in offseason work, training camp and the preseason, but he would have to stay away from the team until after Week Six. Hill is now a free agent, so he can get to work on trying to convince some team that he’ll be able to stay out of trouble.
