Hill, McCoy agree

The Seahawks added quality and depth to their linebacker corps today, when veteran starter Leroy Hill and special teams standout Matt McCoy agreed to terms on one-year contracts.

Hill, a third-round draft choice in 2005, has started 77 games – including the first 16-start season of his seven-year career in 2011, when he finished fourth on the team with 89 tackles. Retaining Hill is significant, after middle linebacker David Hawthorne signed with the Saints in free agency last week.

McCoy led the Seahawks with 19 special teams tackles in 2010 and was getting work as a situational linebacker last season before being placed on injured reserve with a knee injury after four games.
