JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Pete Carroll said it was the suspension of linebacker Bruce Irvin last spring that finally got the attention of the rest of the Seattle Seahawks that they needed to be taking their commitment to the team more seriously.

Seattle's past problems with drug suspensions -- both performance-enhancing and substance abuse -- were brought up again on Wednesday. Carroll was expansive, going back to Irvin's PED suspension last May as a turning point for the team.

Carroll says the motto "Seahawks 24/7" that became a team slogan this season was born out of Irvin's suspension. Carroll says his young team finally realized the importance of being responsible not just on the field but off as well.

Seattle has seen seven players suspended for substance or PED violations since 2011.
