Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill, facing a
possible likely suspension to open the 2010 season, revealed to the Associated Press on Tuesday that he’s already met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
Hill called the meeting, which took place a few weeks ago, “instructive.”
“It was informative, it was a good meeting,” Hill said. “Everything went well. It was just a Q-and-A basically. … I listened a lot, learned a lot.”
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll admitted that he doesn’t know if Hill will be eligible to play all 16 games this season: “We’ll have to wait and see on that. I don’t know that. I don’t know how that’s going to go.”
We can help him.
Hill is a two-time offender of the NFL’s personal conduct policy. He was arrested in January 2009 for misdemeanor marijuana possession, a charge to which he pleaded guilty. Ten days after issuing the plea this April, Hill was arrested for assault and domestic violence following an altercation with his girlfriend.
He’s a poor bet to play more than 12 games this year, assuming Hill is on the roster at all.
