The headline says it all, we got Hill back under contract. This means that we now have the best and youngest linebacker corps in the NFL. I'm excited to see the young and talented trio dominate the Rams week one!

Hill's new contract is worth $38 million over six years, $15.5 million in guaranteed money. The problem with this is that there is a part of the contract stating that the Hawks can't pursue any of the bonus, should Hill be disciplined for the marijuana possession that he has recently been charged for. This is a bit odd, I think it means that Hill and the Hawks realise that it is likely there will be some action(s) taken by the commissioner.

On a side note, the Broncos waived Selvin Young. In my opinion, this is another mistake by McDaniels. Do you think the Seahawks should cash in on another of McDaniels mistakes and sign Young to a short, probably two year, contract to see what he can do in our offense? I've always liked Young and was shocked when he didn't get drafted. He's got speed and can break some tackles, any thoughts?
