Seahawks tell Leroy Hill stay home again

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.

    Too bad Hill’s a punk. He’s a pretty solid SAM.

    Could he be the next Seattle OLB to go to the Lions?

    Maybe move Hawthorne outside and Hill to another team?

    I’d like to see Hawthorne out there, anyone lined up with Curry and Tatupu will do just fine.

    Great Leadership on the Hawks now. Hawthorne would be a Great fit to take his place.

    Leroy Hill makes $6 million? Why?
    His claim to fame is that he attended school in Milledgeville, GA … and didn’t accuse Big Ben of raping him in a bar bathroom.

    Hawthorne is Lofa’s back-up in the middle ; Will Herring backs up Hill outside , and although he’s serviceable he’s nowhere near as good as Leroy . Hill keeps screwing up and can’t seem to stay healthy for an entire season . I’m thinking that’ll have to be addressed sooner or later .

    I am sick of people talking bad about the Seahawks….Other than the 2 years that the Cardinals did something, The Seahawks have RULED the NFC West. 5 times division champions. 11 game winning streak over the Lambs and until the past 2 years, they have pretty muched owned the 40whiners. Plus last season they split with the whiners. The Whiners need a QB, Wide Receivers, O-line and help on the Defense.
