The NFL announced today that LB Leroy Hill has been suspended one game and fined an additional game check for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. This suspension is for his domestic violence arrest in April. Hill reached an agreement in that case that will have the charges dismissed if he avoids further legal trouble and meets other court-directed stipulations.
Hill already was suspended for the seasons opener and fined an additional game check for his 2009 marijuana arrest. Hill was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list last week, and per league policy the suspension is served immediately, meaning the punishment is strictly a financial one for Hill.
Hill will be a free agent at the end of this season, and it seems highly unlikely that he will be re-signed by Seattle given his past legal and injury troubles.
