Terry cut, Locklear and Hunter to fight it out for spot.

As of March 19, it seems that Terry's character issues finally became more than the Seahawks could put up with, and so they have cut starting right tackle Chris Terry, opening the door for what should prove to be an interesting competition for his spot.
Although Terry's personal problems played a large part in his release, clearly, finances had quite a bit to do with it as well. His contract will now count three million dallars against the cap instead of the four million it would have had they not cut him.

So now my question is, should the Hawks pursue a RT in free agency, or in the draft, or will either Hunter or Locklear be ready to start? What do you guys think?

  1. I vote to let the two kids fight it out. Both were 3rd round picks no? In fact I think Hunter was said to have been a steal where he was drafted. I wouldn't mind a Jones, Hutch, Toebeck (resign him), Womack, Hunter line. That is a young and very athletic and talented line. I don't think there would be any significant FA improvements over Hunter or Locklear. We drafted them, now lets see what they can do.

  3. The 49-ers just released their RT, but I think he wants Dinaro Grande.

    Perhaps we can pick up a good prospect in the eventual Shaun Alexander trade?

  4. If anything Womack can start at tackle,Locklear played guard his last year at NC state.I don't see this as much of a problem for us,
