Leroy Hill's Status in Seattle

Posted on: June 14, 2010 10:32 pm
 

After a second run-in with the law prompted the Seahawks to tell Leroy Hill to stay away for much of the offseason, the outside linebacker rejoined his teammates today. Hill’s return is somewhat curious given he still has a domestic violence case scheduled for June 23.

But don’t assume that Hill’s future is secure in Seattle. He is due to make $6 million in 2010, which is a hefty sum for an inconsistent player who has modestly regressed in recent years.

Most damning to Hill's starting prospects is that the Seahawks absolutely have to get David Hawthorne on the field this season. The undrafted third-year pro was phenomenal filling in for an injured Lofa Tatupu at middle linebacker in ’09. Tatupu is too good to bench, so Hawthorne would have to fill the weakside slot that recently became vacant when Aaron Curry switched to his collegiate strong side position. Hawthorne’s downhill speed and proclivity for infiltrating the backfield make him an ideal fit for the weak side. Hill is certainly athletic enough for this role, as well, but he doesn’t begin to have Hawthorne’s playmaking prowess.

If you ask me, Leroy Hill is close to getting cut.  Statistically, he peaked in his rookie season in 2005.  His sacks have dwindled and he's never played the pass especially well.  I say the Seahawks put a better athlete on the field and give Davide Hawthorne a shot.  If Pete Carroll wants to build a winner, he's got to have a ball hawking defense.
