Earlier today at Fansided, it was reported, as it was on and other sources that Will Hill had become a member of the Arizona Rattlers. Here’s the FanSided link:

The confusion lies in stories like this one from Arizona Sports below, followed by an excerpt:

"Earlier this week, the New York Giants released safety Will Hill, a player facing a third drug-related suspension.Some would have you believe that he wasn’t out of football very, and all reported Friday that Hill has signed a contract with the Arizona Rattlers of the Arena Football League.Hill did sign with the Rattlers, but back in 2012 after going undrafted out of the University of Florida.The Rattlers press release that is linked to on various outside reports also trumpets the signing of defensive backs Arkeith Brown and Da’Mon Merkerson. The press release is over two years old."

It appears Will Hill is not exactly an Arizona Rattler, but he’s also still not a New York Giant either. At Fox News, they got a quote from Will Hill’s agent in their piece linked below:

"“He was with [the Rattlers] before he signed with the Giants [in 2011],” Hill’s agent, Adisa Bakari said in a phone interview. “They still have his rights. There’s not much more I can say.”"

Tomorrow we’ll likely know more, but the interesting journey of Will Hill rolls on, kind of like a cloud of smoke… fitting Big Blue Nation… fitting.
