Leroy Hill, LB
Seahawks president and general manager Tim Ruskell said Monday the team is having "just conversations" with Hill's agent on a possible long-term contract.
Ruskell said the move gives the team flexibility to sign other veteran free agents.
The Seahawks signed cornerback Ken Lucas, who was released last month by Carolina in a salary-cap move, on Monday. The 30-year-old played his first four NFL seasons with Seattle from 2001-04.
