I was reading today on ESPN's rumor central that the Seahawks are now a dark horse trading partner for the Bills Travis Henry. I found this to be interesting because I am not sure I understand the logic. Dont get me wrong ...I have said since the draft that they should trade SA and get Henry...but the timing is strange and the message about Shaun's future with the Hawks remains very cloudy to me. Hopefully some of you can answer some questions for me:
1) If the team knows for a fact that they dont want to move forward with Shaun as there running back, why do they keep waiting for him to come in and sign his tender?
2) On that same not, why not remove the franchise tag from Shaun and make the trade for Henry? and what is it about Shaun that No team is willing to part with a second round pick?
3) If Shaun is not the type of RB for the west coast offense...why are we talking about a long term deal? would it be only to get him to sign it and then trade him?
4) How much of a distraction will this become if Shaun does hold out and we have not made a trade for some one Travis?
I think that Shaun is a pretty good running back ...but the lack of interest in him has led me to wonder if their is a reason...Its not often that someone who put ups the numbers like him comes out on the trading block ...what gives?
But I believe that if the Seahawks dont want Shaun...they need to make a move now and not let it become a distraction.
