Hill’s agent still talking with Seahawks

Despite the Seattle Seahawks rescinding the $8.3 million franchise tender from LB LeRoy Hill over the weekend, the team has held multiple conversations with Hill’s agent, Todd France, since pulling the tender after taking Wake Forest LB Aaron Curry fourth overall in the NFL Draft on Saturday.

By removing the tender, Hill immediately became an unrestricted free agent and could sign with any team. For the Seahawks, the move frees space under the salary cap for them to sign players, including Hill.

Update: Seattle brought back former Seahawk Ken Lucas on a one-year deal on Monday. Along with adding the veteran cornerback, the team also announced that FB Justin Griffith signed a one-year deal.
