SWXRightNow.com -- The Seattle Seahawks and head coach Pete Carroll have been collectively fined $300,000 by the NFL and the team has had two days of minicamp practice taken away next season for violating offseason contact rules of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The fine was first reported by ESPN.com and was confirmed later by NFL.com's Ian Rapoport via Twitter.

League spokesperson Greg Aiello told USA Today, "(Seattle) will forfeit its first two days of on-field double practices during its 2015 mandatory minicamp for veteran players and will be permitted a single 2½-hour on-field practice session on the final day of its minicamp," Aiello told USA TODAY Sports by e-mail.

"Seahawks players will be paid for the cancelled practice sessions. The violation was for permitting the club's players to engage in excessive levels of on-field physical contact during the team's 2014 mandatory minicamp for veteran players."

The Seahawks also lost two days of organized team activities (OTA) for making the same violations in 2012.

Seattle will face the Oakland Raiders in their final preseason game on Thursday, Aug. 28, before opening the NFL regular season against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 4 at 5:30 p.m. PDT on NBC.
