He had appealed the decision, but the league announced the suspension on July 20.
"It's a blessing to be here and I know right versus wrong," said Hill. "The Giants helped me the best way they could. They got me help and helped me see other ways to cope with my problems."
Coughlin declined to discuss Hill except to say, "We were disappointed and hopefully Will is going to get his life straightened out."
As a rookie in 2012, Hill missed four games for violating the NFL Policy on Performance-enhancing Substances. Now he'll miss four more.
Hill played in 12 games as a reserve and on special teams last season. He had 30 tackles (26 solo) on defense and 13 tackles on special teams.
