Seahawks-Cardinals Field Judge Was Paid By Team When Calling Seahawks Practices
According to Albert Breer of NFL.com, replacement field judge Jeff Sardorus, a former PAC-12 official who was part of the crew for the Week 1 game between the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals, had officiated Seahawks practices each of the last three seasons (though not 2012) despite the fact that it's a direct violation of the NFL's supposed rules regarding conflict of interest.
Breer reported that the NFL's internal memo to the replacement officials indicated that "effective immediately, officials will not work NFL team scrimmages during the week."
A Seahawks spokesperson told Shutdown Corner that the team had no comment on the matter at this time. The NFL has also declined comment. A Seahawks spokesperson told Breer that Sardorus' one-time employment with the team was "plausible."
