Charges against Seahawks LB Leroy Hill for marijuana possession have been dropped, according to multiple reports.

Hill was arrested on Feb. 25 after Atlanta police allegedly found marijuana "blunts" in his apartment. Hill's girlfriend was also arrested.

"This morning the charges against Leroy Hill Jr. were completely dismissed because he was innocent of having any knowledge that trace amounts of marijuana were in his apartment," said Hill's attorney, Edward T.M. Garland, according to The (Tacoma) News Tribune. "He took a urine test immediately following his arrest and it showed that he was negative for any drugs in his system, as did the young woman who was with him."

Hill is set to be an unrestricted free agent. He played 16 games last season and recorded 89 tackles and four sacks.
