The Giants worked out free agent LBs Leroy Hill and Jonathan Goff on Tuesday.
The Giants are vanishingly thin at linebacker after losing Dan Connor (neck) for the season, and should add a veteran free agent before long. Hill started 12 games for the Seahawks last season, but Goff hasn't made an appearance since 2010. Tue, Sep 17, 2013 04:13:00 PM

The Titans worked out free agent LB Leroy Hill on Tuesday.

Hill has dealt with off-field issues since the end of last season, but could provide veteran insurance with Zaviar Gooden (ankle) sidelined. The Titans also worked out free agent linebackers Jamar Chaney and Tyrone McKenzie.

Free agent LB Leroy Hill won't be charged with a felony for his January domestic violence arrest.

The King County (Washington) prosecutor’s office couldn't find "sufficient cause" to move forward with charges. Hill could still face misdemeanor charges. The eight-year veteran hasn't drawn a whiff of interest in free agency.

The King County Prosecutor's office still hasn't decided whether to move forward with domestic violence charges against free agent LB Leroy Hill.

Hill was arrested on unlawful imprisonment and third-degree assault charges in January. It's his fourth brush with the law since 2009. Predictably, the 30-year-old Hill has garnered no known interest on the open market.

The Seahawks are unlikely to re-sign free agent WLB Leroy Hill.

Hill had a decent season in 2012, starting 12 games and racking up 47 tackles, but his arrest for domestic violence last month salted away any chances he had of re-upping in Seattle. The Seahawks have a capable replacement in Malcolm Smith, while the Tacoma News Tribune says Kyle Knox is a "player to watch."

Impending free agent LB Leroy Hill was arrested for domestic violence Tuesday.

It's the second time in the last four years that Hill has been popped for domestic violence. The last time, the charges were dismissed after he agreed to enroll in a treatment program. This time, he'll be facing fourth-degree assault and unlawful imprisonment once formally charged. Hill has already been suspended for two games earlier in his career following two marijuana-related offenses. Teams showing interest in him come March will have to take into account another possible suspension.

Seahawks WLB Leroy Hill suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday night's win over the 49ers.

Hill has played in 13 games this season, registering 47 tackles and 1.5 sacks. His back-up, Malcolm Smith, sustained a groin injury last night as well, so the Seahawks could be down to their No. 3 weak-side 'backer, Michael Morgan, for Week 17 against the Rams.

Seahawks WLB Leroy Hill (ankle) has a good chance to return to game action this week versus the Cardinals.

"He should have a chance to be better," coach Pete Carroll said. "He was close [last week], but he couldn't play after the workout in pregame." 2011 seventh-rounder Malcolm Smith played well in Hill's absence at Chicago in Week 13.

Seahawks re-signed LB Leroy Hill to a one-year contract.

Hill is coming off an impressive bounce-back season with 89 tackles and four sacks, playing 87 percent of the Seahawks' snaps in 2011. Even though the charges were eventually dismissed, Hill killed his market with his third arrest in four years back in February. He should be penciled in as the weak-side starter once again.

Marijuana charges against free agent WLB Leroy Hill were dismissed in an Atlanta municipal court on Monday.

Hill and his girlfriend agreed to urine tests immediately after their arrests, and both passed. The prosecution thus dropped charges. The chances of Hill re-signing with the Seahawks likely increased significantly with this news. The physical 29-year-old racked up 89 tackles and four sacks last season.

The Seattle Times believes free agent WLB Leroy Hill's latest arrest has ended his Seahawks career.

Hill's Saturday arrest for marijuana possession was his third arrest in four years. Limited to one game by an Achilles injury in 2010, Hill bounced back to notch 89 tackles and four sacks last season, but simply isn't worth the headache heading into his age-30 campaign. He'll likely draw little interest on the open market before the beginning of training camp.

Free agent WLB Leroy Hill was arrested for marijuana possession early Saturday morning in Atlanta.

The drugs were discovered when police dogs were performing "random floor checks" by Hill's apartment, following a neighbor's complaint. Upon entry, officers observed marijuana "blunts" in plain sight, along with marijuana residue. Hill and his girlfriend were both arrested. The 29-year-old Hill has now been arrested three times over the past three years, once for another marijuana charge and again for domestic violence. He was suspended one game and two additional game checks in 2010, and is now surely facing a lengthier ban.

Seahawks LB Leroy Hill (hamstring) is expected to be ready when the Seahawks come out of their bye.

Hill suffered a mild strain in last Sunday's win over the Giants. He has 31 tackles, one forced fumble and one sack through five games.
Tue, Oct 11, 2011 12:22:00 PM

Seahawks LB Leroy Hill left Sunday's game against the Giants with a hamstring injury.

Hill departed in the fourth quarter and was unable to return. He had five tackles before leaving.

Seahawks agreed to terms with LB Leroy Hill.

Hill's off-field woes combined with injuries have sapped all his buzz. But the Seahawks need him after losing Will Herring to the Saints. Now Hill will just try to rehab his image as a backup.
