The Seattle Seahawks have been hit hard by suspensions for players violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy over the past few seasons. A total of five players since 2011 were hit with suspensions and that has sparked the team’s veteran leaders to step up and call a meeting to address the situation and problem.

“We had a meeting.  The vets, we put a meeting together to talk to the guys about not making the same mistakes over and over,” safety Kam Chancellor said, according to Alex Marvez and Jim Miller of SiriusXM NFL Radio.

“We’ve gotta grow up and move past that. So that’s pretty much the message right now, growing up and not making the same mistakes over and over.”

Hopefully the meeting can serve as a wake up call to the younger players.

Seattle is one of the top up and coming teams in the league with a number of young star players, so they need to do their best and stay focused on improving without violating any NFL rules.
