LeRoy Hill and Matt McCoy are back with Seattle. Seahawks resign the veterans
Per Seahawks.com a short while ago.
The Seahawks added quality and depth to their linebacker corps today, when veteran starter Leroy Hill and special teams standout Matt McCoy agreed to terms on one-year contracts.
Hill, a third-round draft choice in 2005, has started 77 games – including the first 16-start season of his seven-year career in 2011, when he finished fourth on the team with 89 tackles.
In 2011 Hill started all 16 games and this humors me, but he is returning for his 8th straight season and for the second straight he's in on a one-year deal.
McCoy led the Seahawks with 19 special teams tackles in 2010 and was getting work as a situational linebacker last season before being placed on injured reserve with a knee injury after four games.
Tough time to go on IR last year for Matt. He's a great teams contributor and provides depth at linebacker as well.
Retaining Hill is significant, after middle linebacker David Hawthorne signed with the Saints in free agency last week.
Great job by the Seahawks in 2012 free agency keeping their own guys that they know so much about. It shows me this front office is loyal to their warriors as well.
Kudo's Pete and John.
I love this picture of LeRoy. One tough dude.
