Is it time to trade Leroy Hill?

John Morgan of Field Gulls lays out his case for yes.

The Seahawks recently asked Hill to stay home from minicamp after an arrest for domestic violence just days after starting probation for a marijuana charge.

Morgan asserts that because of Hill's age and attractive contract, he should have value to a contending team. The move would leave Seattle with a starting core of Aaron Curry, Lofa Tatupu and David Hawthorne at linebacker.

The team would also then look harder at drafting a pass rusher in the first round, like Derrick Morgan or Brandon Graham.

Hill will likely face some sort of suspension this season because of the marijuana charge and his recent arrest could make things worse.
