[B]Seahawks LB LeRoy Hill arrested for pot possession.[/B]

To know in your heart that LeRoy Hill has played his last game in a Seattle Seahawks uniform.

The Tacoma News Tribune is reporting on their website today that 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.

Oops I did it again...

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 far lengthier time away from the game courtesy of the NFL.

TSK TSK LeRoy is all I can say. It was fun knowing you. Good luck this time around.

To all of you saying the Seahawks wouldn’t be looking for a linebacker with one of their first 3 or 4 picks, think again.

They are now.

David Hawthorne must be resigned and with K.J. Wright in the fold in 2012 and Malcolm Lewis showing signs of promise the roster looks just a little bit lighter today with this breaking Seahawks news.

LeRoy Hill was suspended for the first game of the 2010 season for violating the NFL’s drug policy in regards to the marijuana charge in Georgia in 2009.

I think it’s safe to assume with this latest incident, depending on disciplinary actions negotiated in the latest CBA, Hill could be looking at a minimum of a four-game suspension for the 2012 season as a repeat offender.

Does Pete and John want this type of distraction in their young dressing room?

I’m going to say NO. He’s a soon to be free-agent.
