Pete Carroll Asked point blank if Leroy Hill will be part of the 2010 Seattle Seahawks?

Published on May 17, 2010 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Linebacker Leroy Hill again was not in attendance at today’s OTA workout. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the team is still waiting on the league office to respond to the issue to find out how they will handle Hill’s situation. Hill was arrested for a domestic disturbance incident in April at his Issaquah home, and the team has excused him from team activities until his legal situation has been resolved.

Asked point blank if Hill will be part of the 2010, Carroll had this to say:

“I am hoping,” Carroll said. “He is part of our team. I am hoping he will be. We need to see what that all means but we’ll figure it out when the time comes.”

Carroll said defensively the Seahawks are still trying to get the 5-tech defensive end figured out opposite the “Leo” or “Elephant” position. Red Bryant, Lawrence Jackson and E.J. Wilson have all seen time at that spot, and Carroll continues to be impressed with the development of Bryant after being moved from nose tackle to defensive end.

“If we are able to man that defensive end position with a guy who weighs 330 pounds, that’s a good thing,” Carroll said. “And that’s if we can get Red down to 330, so we’re working on it.”

Carroll said of all the tweaks and experimenting the team has done during the offseason, the change of Bryant to defensive end has looked the most promising.
