LB Hill likely to re-sign with Seattle

Posted by Chris Brown on April 28, 2009 – 1:38 pm

Despite having the franchise tag removed at the close of draft weekend, LB Leroy Hill is still expected to re-sign with the Seahawks. That according to Tacoma News Tribune.

Hill is already reportedly negotiating with the Seahawks on a long term deal. The Bills did not rule out Hill or anyone else as an option in free agency at the close of the draft Sunday.

But it would seem that in order to pry Hill from Seattle a team would have to overpay to get it done.

Any interest in Leroy Hill?

Posted by Chris Brown on April 26, 2009 – 3:09 pm

The Seattle Seahawks have confirmed they’ve pulled the franchise tag off of LB LeRoy Hill after drafting Aaron Curry. Should the Bills have interest?

Hill was charged with marijuana possession back in January when he was found asleep behind the wheel of his car at 4am and marijuana was found in his car. He could be facing an NFL suspension.

Don’t know if it’s worth it, but he’s out there.

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

Posted by Chris Brown on January 27, 2009 – 1:27 am

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.

Seattle FA LB Hill may not be affordable at all

Posted by Chris Brown on January 21, 2009 – 4:02 pm

It looks like the hope that a free agent LB like Seattle’s LB Leroy Hill might be somewhat affordable in free agency is a pipe dream. According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, its likely that Hill will prove difficult to land without a monster offer.

By the sounds of it Hill might prove to be too expensive for the Bills and a lot of other teams. Buffalo needs an OLB to replace I-R’d free agent Angelo Crowell.
