Seahawks fined over $300,000, to lose two practices for rule violations

The Seattle Seahawks and coach Pete Carroll were fined over $300,000 and penalized with the loss of two practices in 2015 for violating rules prohibiting contact in offseason practices, according to ESPN.

Carroll was fined $100,000 and the Seahawks were fined over $200,000.

The team was also docked at least two minicamp practices next year because of contact during a June 18 minicamp.

The Seahawks were fined in 2012 for a similar rule violation.

The Seahawks have yet to comment on the incident.
