The linebacking corps for the Seahawks just got a little deeper.
The team announced they have signed linebackers Leroy Hill and Matt McCoy to one-year contracts.
Hill, who has played his entire seven-year career with the Seahawks after being drafted in the third round out of Clemson, had been a free agent. The market cooled while he dealt with an arrest for marijuana possession charge in February that was later dropped in March.
Last season, Hill had 89 tackles and four sacks while playing in 16 games. He is one of two remaining players from Seattle’s NFC championship team in 2005.
McCoy has been with the Seahawks the last two years. He was placed on the injured reserve with a knee injury after playing in four games.
