According to a report by Fox Sports 1, New York Giants safety Will Hill, the extremely talented safety whose professional career has been marred by two league-imposed suspensions related to violations of the NFL policies on performance enhancement and illegal substances, is facing another league-imposed suspension.
With starting quarterback Eli Manning sidelined for at least the next five weeks as he recovers from recent ankle surgery, the Giants added former Buccaneer and Viking signal caller Josh Freeman to provide an extra arm for the team’s upcoming OTAs and for training camp.
The move was first reported by Fox Sports 1.
The NFL has announced the preseason schedule of opponents for all 32 teams in advance of the full 2014 regular season schedule, the latter of which should be made public later this month.
The Giants will participate in five games this preseason, starting with a nationally televised game against the Buffalo Bills as part of the Hall of Fame festivities. That game will be broadcast nationally by NBC live from Canton, Ohio on Sunday, August 3.
The Giants will then face the same four teams in the same order as they did in 2013. That list includes a home matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1 (August 7-10); a road game against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2 (August 14-18), a “road” game against the Jets in Week 3 (August 21-24) and a home game against the New England Patriots in Week 4 (August 28).
The exact dates and times of the Giant’s preseason games will be announced later this month, along with the rest of the NFL regular season.
