Leroy Hill takes a monster paycut

It’s unclear what LB Leroy Hill’s role will be with the Seahawks this year.

After all, the team asked him to stay away from team headquarters this offseason while he faced a domestic violence charge and David Hawthorne, Hill’s replacement, has been commended by the coaching staff.

But there’s no question that Hill will be cheaper for Seattle this season.

As reported by’s Mike Sando , Hill has agreed to a reduced salary of $2.125 million (down from $6 million).

You’re probably asking yourself: Wait, didn’t Hill have a guaranteed deal?

Sando’s answer:

Hill's salary had been guaranteed, but off-field troubles can raise questions about a team's obligations, as when a judge ordered former receiver Charles Rogers to repay $6.1 million in bonus money to the Detroit Lions. …

Hill's new deal lets him earn back $300,000 in incentives. He also gets a $60,000 roster bonus.

In May 2009, Hill had signed a six-year, $36 million contract featuring a $2 million bonus and base salaries of $5 million and $6 million in the first two years.
