I Can Haz New Contract?

According to Adam Schefter (with a hat tip to PFT) The Seahawks have offered a 3-year contract extension to Seneca Wallace.

Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the Seattle Seahawks have signed backup quarterback Seneca Wallace to a three-year, $5.4 million contract.

The contract increases his 2007 salary from $800,000 to $2 million. Also, Wallace is due to receive a $400,000 roster bonus in March. If the team chooses not to pay it, Wallace will be an unrestricted free agent.

PFT goes on to say they disagree with this move, since they think Seneca left a lot of money on the table.

Personally, I believe this is only the first shoe to fall from Seahawks headquarters. I'm guessing that 3rd stringer David Greene will be released after his dismal performance on Saturday, and that the Seahawks will soon be announcing the acquisition of a veteran QB from some other team, freeing up Mr. Wallace to use his mad skillz elsewhere on the playing surface, either as a slash-type QB/WR, or returning punts and kicks.

Whatever the case, the Seahawk faithful can now breathe a collective sign of relief, knowing how well Seneca filled in while Matt Hasselbeck was rehabbing last season.


  1. I agree Seneca should buy Greene a Lunchable for the bus ride home when he gets cut. He did more Saturday to make this contract happen the Seneca's agent could ever do. I don't think SW becomes a receiver though...not unless the 3 QB ends up being Trent D.

    Great to see you on the site again my friend. Have you been following the threads on SeahawkBlue about the Second Annual Motherland Get-Together?

    Looking forward to seeing you and Vespa again.

  3. One slight correction for JL White: you could save yourself valuable time when typing that last line in the LOLHawk by using its correct meme form, "kthxbai".

    You're welcome...
