Report: Hill could receive additional suspension time

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Seattle Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill could receive additional suspension time of two to three weeks from NFL league commissioner Rodger Goodell for again violating the league's personal conduct policy.

According to the report, Hill met with league officials in New York this week, discussing no doubt his involvement in an incident earlier this year at his Issaquah home between his then live-in girlfriend.

Hill already served a one-game suspension and had to give up an additional game week paycheck for a marijuana misdemeanor charge in suburban Atlanta last January.

Hill settled his domestic dispute case in Issaquah, and will not be charged as long as he completes a domestic-violence prevention program and does not have any other legal issues in the next 18 months.

However, Hill also had his contract cut to the end of this season and received a reduced salary due to his off-the-field issues. Hill has a heel/Achilles issues and will miss significant time according to Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll.
