NFL Notes

Giants' Hill suspended four games by NFL

New York Giants safety Will Hill has been suspended for four games by the NFL for violating the league's substance of abuse policy, his second drug suspension in two years.

Hill will miss the first four games of New York's season, and be eligible to return in time for the Oct. 6 game against Philadelphia. He is still allowed to take part in training camp and preseason games.

He was suspended last year for violating the league's performance enhancing drug policy, testing positive for Adderall.

Dolphins 1st-round pick Dion Jordan signs

With his NFL career yet to start, Miami Dolphins first-round draft pick Dion Jordan decided he didn't want to fall any farther behind.

Jordan, a defensive end and linebacker from Oregon, signed a multiyear contract Saturday and will take part in the first training camp practice today. He missed all of the Dolphins' offseason workouts because Oregon is on the quarter system. With his signing, the Dolphins have all nine draft choices under contract.

The 6-foot-6, 240-pound Jordan was the third player taken in the draft after the Dolphins swung a trade with Oakland to move up nine spots. Miami projects he'll upgrade a defense that tied for fourth-worst in the league in takeaways last year.
