Will FA LB Hill’s run-in affect free agent suitors?

It will certainly be interesting to see how much Seattle free agent LB to be Leroy Hill fares on the free agent market now following his arrest for suspicion of marijuana possession after being found asleep behind the wheel of his car at a busy suburban Atlanta intersection at 4am this past Saturday.

Seattle writers are already tossing out the ‘good character’ mantra that a lot of NFL teams use publicly, but adopt a different approach when it comes to landing or in the case of the Seahawks keeping top shelf talent.

I’m interested in seeing if this cools the free market interest in Hill. Certainly when you’re set to make a boatload of free agent money, you’d think someone who allegedly dabbles in this kind of stuff would be even more cautious knowing what’s at stake. Oh well.
