ADP...so are you saying you want any linebacker with red hair, or one from Baltimore?
Well, it looks like we yelled loud enough, the Hawks have scheduled Hartwell for a visit.
YES!!!!YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES !!!!!!(I'm doing a little dance)Hey look, they even put up a sign!!!
We're also bringing DT Chartrick Darby (?) and Kelly Herndon (CB for the Broncos)Simmons is in New Orleans this week.On a great for teams in the NFC West note, Orlando Pace is visiting the Texans this week.
BlueFoot - after the Amy Miller thing, I was a little hesitant to click on the link, but I'm glad I did. LOL funny man!
it depends...if Hartwell dyed his hair red, then yes...ironically...im sying my hair dark red/purple for the hell of it soon...it looks cool on long hair like mineas for Darby...i think he is from the Cardinals...im pretty sure i made fun of his name on ESPN 2k4/5
man was i wrong...Darby played his whole career with Tampa Bay...maybe the Cardinals traded for him on the game...?
maybe the peroxide is seeping in through your scalp!
No more comments-see Seahawks St. Poll
This quote is from the Seattle P-I believe it or not. "Ed is going to get something signed," Harold Lewis (his agent) said. "I'm guessing that within 48 hours, he's done. But he wanted to get the Seattle trip in. He really wanted to see what it was." While this doesn't really indicate any serious desire to play here, it at least does indicate an interest. Also, I feel a little better knowing that this won't be something that hangs around endlessly, apparently we will know where he will sign very soon.
Travis Taylor (WR Ravens) cancelled his visit to Seattle after signing with the Vikings
When this blog messes up, it doesn't play around, does it? I erased ultiple postings of the same thing.
Rod Gardner anyone?
Seattle was also close to reaching agreement today with cornerback Kelly Herndon, a restricted free agent from the Denver Broncos. http://www.thenewstribune.comFrom Ravens Insider:"Linebacker Ed Hartwell was "very, very impressed" with the Seattle Seahawks, particularly defensive coordinator Ray Rhodes, his agent Harold Lewis said. Lewis said he hopes this is Hartwell's final visit. ...
And I HAVE to say it....Told ya so about Rhodes bringing in guys.
I realize Hartwell isn't here yet, but the comment shows that guys want to play for Rhodes, and it's not for his social skills!(Especially his communications skills) :)
I agree people want to play for Rhodes. Hartwell will sign with the Hawks book it.
The rams are very close to signing LT Orlando Pace to a long term deal.
Brad Johnson agreed to terms with the Vikings, looks like we're still looking for a backup (although I think Seneca would do just fine.)
Two updates:The Hawks are supposed to be signing an offer sheet to Kelly Herndon (RFA CB from Den)The Hawks are interested in Jay Foreman (UFA LB from Hou)Both could be good additions. This is completely changing our draft strategy though.
Nice~!I still the wee need a pass rusher, though. That part of the draft strategy is #1 on my book.Buy that kind of stuff makes BPA drafting a lot easier.
Blue, those two concepts are closely linked, IMO. It seems that there is an abundance of pass rush talent available this year. Combine that with the relative lack of LB's (which always seems to be the case) and I think it would be wise for the Hawks to position themselves so that they are not forced to take a LB. It is quite likely that a DE will be the BPA when the Hawks pick (or at least close enough to the BPA to justify drafting and not calling it a "need pick").
Not that it would ever hurt to have another, but isn't Fisher a pretty good pass rusher?
He's just about as good as Okeafor, but we needed help when Oke was here.
Pace signed with the Rams for seven years, 52.8 million, which really isn't that terribly bad (only a little more than Waltars), but since he's a Lamb, I guess we have to hate him.Also, didn't the deadline just pass ten minutes ago, and no Hartwell news? :(
The deadline that we're worried about will have nothing to do with Hartwell, it's the deadline for talking to Franchised players about long term contracts. We can offer contracts to free agents anytime we'd like.
Oh, I see. I thought it was a blanket deadline, which prevented all player signings (which really doesn't make much sense, now that I think about it).
Edge just signed his tender with the Colts.
Scared the shit out of me, Paul ;).
