Seahawks free agent linebacker Leroy Hill won’t face felony domestic violence charges, after the King County Prosecutors Office deemed the case against him insufficient to pursue, according to Danny O’Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle.

Hill’s not out of the woods yet, as misdemeanor charges are still a possibility with the local prosecutor.

He was arrested in January, and also in 2010 on domestic violence charges, though those  were thrown out when he enrolled in a treatment program.

The 30-year-old linebacker also has multiple marijuana arrests.

There’s been no indication the Seahawks want him back, and even though the recent charges aren’t going anywhere, it’s likely enough to scare away potential employers.

  1. This guy’s inability to avoid cops has cost him more money than most of us will see in our lifetimes. Seems like every time he is looking for a contract, he gets arrested.

  2. How bout that. The Seahawks just happen to be looking for a cheap, veteran WILL backer right now to fill Leroy Hill’s old slot, and look who’s suddenly available.

  3. Hill was in shape and plays very well against the run and even though his name came up in the news hasn’t been any trouble for 2 years. Seattle didn’t draft any OLB and LeRoy is still a better option than Smith/Morgan.
