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.

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.
