Hosley was suspended in June for the first four regular season games for violating league?s substance abuse policy. Hosley was unable to benefit from a new league policy that resulted in shorter suspensions for similarly penalized players. That group included Giants guard Eric Herman, who wss reinstated and waived last week before rejoining the team's practice squad Monday.
With the Giants healthy in the secondary these days (Walter Thurmond aside), it's hard to think that Hosley will be placed on the roster. But releasing him seems like a waste, too. After all, he was a third-round pick in 2012 with a high ceiling. Many were mocking him as a late first, early second rounder before the draft.
