This arrest, Hill's second on a marijuana-related offense and third overall in three years, will cost him money.
Eric Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune runs through Hill's off-field history. He notes that Hill could face a four-game suspension to open the 2012 season. That would cost Hill one-fourth his base salary for the season.
Hill became an every-down player in 2011, enjoying a strong season. He's at risk for taking a financial hit in free agency after this latest arrest, continuing a pattern.
In 2009, the Seahawks named Hill their franchise player. Hill would have collected $8.3 million in guaranteed money had he signed the franchise offer. Instead, he waited til the draft. The Seahawks selected Aaron Curry, withdrew the franchise tag and later signed Hill to a deal favoring the team. Subsequent off-field troubles led the team to slash Hill's pay and reduce money that would have been guaranteed had Hill stayed out of trouble.
