The New York Giants have yet another defensive back facing a league-imposed suspension.
While Hill's absence equals a crushing loss for New York's secondary, Hosley was little more than a supporting cast member for a defense that added free-agent cornerbacks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Walter Thurmond to play alongside Prince Amukamara.
Hosley has earned just seven career starts in the slot since New York used a 2012 third-round pick on the defender out of Virginia Tech.
Set to battle for snaps with Zack Bowman and Trumaine McBride among others, Hosley already teetered on the roster bubble as a potential cut. After losing their patience with an ascendant talent like Hill, Big Blue won't hesitate to dump a lesser talent with off-the-field concerns.
UPDATE: On Thursday, Hosley addressed his suspension: "I made a mistake, and there are consequences. I have to accept them and move on," he said, per the New York Post. Hosley also said he has sought drug counseling.
