The Seattle Seahawks officially announced today that linebackers Leroy Hill and Matt McCoy have each agreed to the terms of a one year contract.

Hill will be able to compete for a starting job since they lost Davd Hawthorne in free agency.  And McCoy will give them depth at the linebacker position as well as help on special teams.

Hill racked up 89 tackles, 4 sacks and 1 forced fumble in 2011.  McCoy pitched in 15 tackles primarily as a back up and special teams contributor.
