RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks are bringing back linebackers Leroy Hill and Matt McCoy after agreeing to one-year deals with each.
The Seahawks announced the agreements on Thursday. Both Hill and McCoy have spent their entire careers with Seattle and Hill is just one of two players on the Seahawks roster that remains from Seattle’s NFC championship team in 2005.
Hill is coming off the first full season of his career. After playing just one game in 2010, Hill started all 16 games at outside linebacker for the Seahawks and finished with 89 tackles and four sacks. Hill ran into trouble briefly during the offseason when he was arrested on a marijuana possession charge in Georgia in February, but those charges were dropped in early March.
McCoy missed most of the 2011 season with a knee injury.
