The Seahawks biggest need is WR. They currently have Deion Branch, Jordan Kent and  Courtney Taylor are the only WR  signed beyond this year. Bobby Engram and Koren Robinson are UFA. The Seahawks hold the 4th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.  We all know the Seahawks will/have to address the WR possition THIS offseason. The question is how and who will it be. The two biggest and best options are Bengals WR T.J Houshmandzadeh (Free agency) and Michael Crabtree (draft).  Here is what each player brings to the field.

Houshmandzadeh: Is a good team player (well he’s on the Bengals so he’s the best team player on the team), good route runner and has great hands (92 catches in 08 and 112 catches in 07). He has pretty good speed and has 8 years NFL experance. 2008 salary was 3.7 million. He would cost about 8-9 million.

Crabtree:  The best player in the NFL draft this season. He compares to Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald which every team in the NFL could use. He’s 21 years old so he’s young at thats important for long term. He has great feet, hands heart for the game. Just look at the UT-Texas Tech game.  He won the Biletnikoff Award both years at Texas Tech.  He had 97 catches, 19 TD’s and 1,165 yards. His freshman year was better than this year.

So now its up to the Hawks. If they sign Houshmandzadeh they wont draft Crabtree. If they dont sign Houshmandzadeh they will most likely draft Crabtree. Now we wait and see.

Tell Us What's On Your Mind (4)

  1. Terry says:

    Why not have all three recievers, Deion Branch who really showed how good he can be when healthy, and both Houshmanzadeh and Michael Crabtree, all three would give the Seahawks Legitimacy in the passing game although the new O' Coordinator is known for establishing the run Game?

  2. I was thinking the same thing terry!

    Why cant we get all three, i think it would be ignorant to not get crabtree in the first round 4th pick, he is a future Jerry Rice if groomed right, which by the way is training with Deion Sanders and of course Deions good friend Jerry Rice.
    My only problem is Matt Hasselbeck, i think he is very sketchy as a Quarterback!

  3. lars hanson says:

    Well having all three would give Seattle probably the best WR core in the NFL next to the Cardinals (with Boldin there). But there is a thing called salary cap. I'm sure we have enough to sign both of them but we couldnt resign Hill or anyone else.

  4. Tim Collette says:

    Seattle has 20 million in salary cap room at this point, we will release some players as UFA & RFA, which by my calculations frees up 6.4 Million More Bucks, release Leroy Hill and build around Lofa Tatupu Julian Peterson & Patrick Kerney and it would possibly leave us with almost 30 million in Saalary Cap Space.

    More than Enough to sign a few Proven NFL Players from around the League.

    Contract Length always determines how much Per year not the full amount of the contract over time against the salary Cap, Thoughts to ponder???
