ESPN is reporting the Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks will be fined for violating no-contact rules that govern NFL teams' offseason practices.

The Seattle Seahawks and coach Pete Carroll have been collectively fined more than $300,000, according to sources, and will lose two double practices in 2015 as ruled by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for violating no-contact rules that govern NFL teams' offseason practices.

Carroll's fine was at least $100,000 and the Seahawks were docked over $200,000 while the team will lose at least two minicamp practices next season because it had excessive contact between players during a June 18 practice, per sources.
The Seahawks had been fined an undisclosed amount in 2012 by Goodell for a similar violation.

The 2011 collective bargaining agreement bans physical contact between players during the offseason.
