Report: Seahawks, Pete Carroll fined for violating non-contact rules

Tuesday August 26th, 2014

The Seattle Seahawks and coach Pete Carroll have been collectively fined more than $300,000 by the NFL for violating offseason non-contact rules, according to a report from ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

The Seahawks will be docked two minicamp workouts in 2015 after players had excessive contact during a June 16 practice.

Carroll's fine was at least $100,000 and the Seahawks' exceeded $200,000, according to the report.

Seattle lost two OTA workouts and was fined for a similar violation in 2012.

Divisional Setbacks Are Seahawks' Gains

The Seahawks, which went 13-3 and won the Super Bowl last season, open the 2014 season Sept. 4 against the Green Bay Packers.
