Seahawks get a slap on the OTA wrist from the NFL for violation of workout rules
Word just came down a short while ago via Adam Schefter from ESPN that the Seattle Seahawks have to forfeit OTA practices Wednesday and Thursday, and offseason workout day Friday because of violation of offseason workout rules.
The Seahawks had live contact at an organized team activity according to the NFL Players Association.
Seahawks’ players are not permitted to be at the facility during these days but will be paid.
The Seahawks aren't allowed to reschedule days.
Here's the official announcement from the league.
I can hear the Pete Carroll cheated in the NCAA and now he's cheating in the NFL calls happening already.
The NFL Management Council and NFL Players Association have determined that the Seattle Seahawks violated the Collective Bargaining Agreement's offseason workout rules on the prohibition of live contact during one of the club's organized team activity days ("OTA days").
As a result, the Seahawks will forfeit two of their scheduled OTA practices (June 6 and 7) as well as an additional offseason workout day on Friday, June 8. Seahawks' players are not permitted to be at the facility on those days, but will be paid for the sessions. The club cannot reschedule the cancelled days.
