Seahawks tell Hill to stay home

The Seattle Seahawks are going to be at least one man short during this week’s minicamp.

That’s because they told linebacker Leroy Hill to stay home.

Hill—a five-year veteran out of Clemson—was arrested this past weekend for allegedly assaulting his live-in girlfriend.

Head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider advised Hill that it was "best for him to take care of some things" rather than attend Seattle's minicamp, per the Associated Press.

The bad news for the 27-year-old Hill (as if that wasn’t already enough) is that he’s currently on probation after pleading guilty to marijuana possession in Georgia on April 1, meaning he could be facing some jail time if he can’t beat the assault charge.

The outside linebacker has amassed 375 stops (279 solo) and 14.5 sacks in 61 career starts for the Seahawks over the past five years.
