Seahawks once again tell Hill to stay away
Leroy Hill is in Pete Carroll’s doghouse.
For the second time this offseason, the Seattle linebacker has been told to stay away from a Seahawks’ minicamp because the team does not want him to be a distraction, per a report from the Associated Press.
The five-year veteran out of Clemson was arrested for domestic violence at the beginning of April just days after he reached a plea deal on a marijuana charge. The Seahawks told Hill to stay away from the team’s first minicamp—which took place in April—and repeated the message for this past weekend’s activities.
The 27-year-old Hill has started 61 games for the Seahawks over the last five years, amassing 375 tackles and 14.5 sacks during that span.
Carroll told the AP that once Hill takes care of all of his off-the-field issues, “we’ll see where it goes.”
Cleary, the new boss is sending a message to the rest of the team that he doesn’t like distractions.
