RENTON, Wash. — Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that he’s disappointed the league has punished the Seattle Seahawks for violating the “on-field physical contact” rule during a June 6 organized team activity.
“I’m really disappointed, because we’ve worked really hard to try and do a great job,” Carroll said. “We’ve been through this with the league over the years, over six years’ time, and after the second time, we made some real big changes in what we did two years ago.
“As a matter of fact, we went to the point to control the tempo the way we thought would be really fitting. We took helmets off our guys. We didn’t practice in helmets the entire OTA season and learned a lot about how to do that.”
