The King County Prosecutor's Office announced Wednesday it did not find sufficient cause to charge Leroy Hill with a felony after he was arrested in January on allegations of domestic violence.

Spokesman Dan Donohoe said the case will be referred to the city prosecutor in Issaquah for a decision on whether there will be a misdemeanor charge filed.

Hill, a linebacker, played the past eight seasons with the Seahawks but is an unrestricted free agent and remains unsigned.


• The Seahawks have waived tight end Darren Fells. Fells played college basketball at UC Irvine and professionally overseas.
