Seahawks Fined 300K For Excessive Contact In Practice

August 28, 2014

The Seahawks and Pete Carroll were fined $300,000 by the NFL for violating off-season non-contact rules during a June 16th OTA practice. The NFL also took away two minicamp practices from the Seahawks for the violation. 

    The altercation that caused the NFL to discipline the Seattle Seahawks was a fight between star cornerback Richard Sherman and wide receiver Phil Bates that occurred during a non contact practice.  The fight was quickly ended and the two parties made up promptly.

    Pete Carroll made it clear to the media that he was working with the NFL saying “I don’t feel like the victim. Not at all,” and adding, “We’re trying to do things exactly right” and that he is disappointed.

    The reason the discipline was so large is because the Seahawks are repeat offenders for this type of behavior.
