Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill pleaded guilty to a charge of marijuana possession Thursday and will serve 12 months of probation.
The incident happened so long ago — January 2009 — that we had forgotten about it. (Or maybe all those wake n bakes have caught up to us.)
The Seahawks have since signed Hill to a long-term contract, so they aren’t too concerned. The guilty plea, however, should get the NFL’s attention.
Hill is now a part of the league’s substance abuse program. It’s unclear if he’ll face any discipline from the NFL.
