SEATTLE - The Seattle Seahawks and coach Pete Carroll were fined by the NFL for violating no-contact rules during offseason practices, according to a report.

On Tuesday, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that sources said Carroll’s fine was “at least” $100,000 and the Seahawks were docked “in excess of $200,000.”

The team will also lose at least two minicamp practices in 2015.

Mortensen reported that, per sources, the team had excessive contact between players during a June 16 practice.

The NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement bans physical contact between players during the offseason.

In 2012, the Seahawks were fined for a similar infraction.
