It looks like the Seattle Seahawks’ physical style of play has cost them today, as Ian Rapoport of has reported that Seattle has been fined $300,000 for violating the collective bargaining agreement’s offseason no-contact rules:

The team will also lose two offseason minicamp practices in 2015. The ruling has stated that the Seahawks were too rough in offseason OTA activities, times that has been designated for practices of the non-contact variety.

This isn’t the first time that Settle has been flagged for this kind of activity. They were penalized two offseason practices in 2012 for another “too physical” violation.

Seattle’s smash mouth style took them all the way to the Super Bowl championship in 2013. While it may not have done them any favors in today’s news, it’s probably a price they’re willing to pay for their success.
