As if Giants general manager Jerry Reese doesn’t have enough on his offseason plate as he attempts to reconstruct his coaching staff and team, he must make a decision on safety Will Hill, who could be facing his third drug suspension in as many seasons next year. Hill, a former St. Peter’s Prep star, is immensely talented but he’s just as troubled. The Giants must determine if he’s worth the headache. On Dec. 20th, Hill, who had a breakout season in 2013, was arrested for being more than $9,000 behind in child support. But during the arrest, it was recently reported by NJ.com that police detected the odor of marijuana in the vehicle, which was owned by Hill but driven by a friend. The Giants initially called it a “personal matter” and Hill traveled to Detroit with the team two days later and returned an interception for a touchdown to help spark a victory. While linebacker Jon Beason received most of the credit for the Giants’ defensive resurgence, Hill insertion into the starting lineup solidified the secondary.
Should Big Blue release troubled safety Will Hill?
