Seahawks tell LB Hill to skip minicamp

The Seahawks have told starting linebacker Leroy Hill to stay

away from this week’s minicamp to deal with his personal

issues.

Coach Pete Carroll said after practice Tuesday that he and

general manager John Schneider advised Hill it was “best for him

to take care of some things” rather than attend Seattle’s

voluntary three-day minicamp.

Hill was arrested for investigation of domestic violence in the

Seattle suburb of Issaquah over the weekend, just days after

reaching a plea deal on a marijuana charge in Georgia.

A copy of the Issaquah police report says the domestic issue

with Hill’s girlfriend stemmed from his alleged infidelity.
