For the second time this offseason, the Seahawks instructed linebacker Leroy Hill to stay home from a minicamp.
“It’s our decision,” Pete Caroll said Sunday. “We don’t need the distraction right now,
and he needs to focus on getting his business taken care of and then
we’ll see where it goes later.”
Well, that sounds ominous. Hill was arrested last month on a domestic disturbance call, and also is expected to be suspended by the NFL after pleading guilty to misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
Hill’s $6 million salary is guaranteed this year, but his legal problems could potentially make that a debatable issue.
Carroll seems comfortable with Hill missing key portions of the team’s installation. It makes us wonder if the Seahawks will welcome Hill back to the team at all.
