New York Giants safety Will Hill just can't keep himself on the field. On Tuesday morning, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports passed along a report that Hill is facing yet another suspension from the NFL for violating the league's drug policy. Hill was informed of his suspension on Monday when the Giants began their offseason workout program.
It would be the third suspension of Hill's three-year career.
In 2012, Hill tested positive for Adderall and received a four-game suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. He was suspended another four games last season for violating the drug policy, which he said came from a positive marijuana test.

This time around, the failed drug test could come with a much bigger punishment.
As a repeat offender, there is a good chance that Hill's latest suspension could force him to miss the entire 2014 season if his appeal is unsuccessful and the failed drug test was a violation of the substance abuse policy. A performance-enhacing drug violation would result in an eight-game suspension.
It is unfortunate to see Hill continue to find himself in trouble off the field, which is exactly why he went undrafted in 2011 despite being a talented player.
