Seattle Loses OTA’s and a Workout for Violating Offseason Rules

The Seahawks have forfeited two days of organized team activities and a workout day for violating the collective bargaining agreement’s offseason workout rules banning live contact during organized team activity practices.

The NFL Management Council and the NFL Players Association made a joint announcement Tuesday afternoon.

According to the NFL and the players’ union, the Seahawks’ punishment includes the cancellation of their previously scheduled organized team activity practices Wednesday and Thursday and a workout day on Friday.

Now, the players are not allowed to report to team headquarters on those three days, however, they will be paid for those workout sessions. The Seahawks are not allowed to reschedule the workouts at a later date.
