Dont Be Surprised If Seahawks Release Patrick Kearney

Published on March 16, 2010 by     Seahawk Fanatic

patrick-kerneyJust so everyone is prepared, in my opinion it would be prudent to release Patrick Kerney due to this years salary and his production. Given all the changes Seattle has made thus far i believe it would make sense to revamp the defense complately around a few key players already in place and lose the excess luggage.

Patrick Kerney has seen his time and his most productive years are past and Seattle needs to move on without him and his high salary!

Patrick Kerney came to the Seattle Seahawks in 2007 after spending his entire career with the Atlanta Falcons. Kerney was drafted 30th overall by the Falcons in the 1999 NFL Draft out of the University of Virginia.

His three year college career as a Cavalier saw Kerney earn All-ACC honors in 1998, as well as All-America honors.

Kerney then signed a five-year $5.6 million contract with the Atlanta Falcons. In his first two years, Kerney recorded only five sacks.

However, 2001 was a breakout year for Kerney, as he tallied 12 sacks and two forced fumbles. Kerney then became a staple of Atlanta’s defensive line, recording 42 sacks from 2001-2004, and making the Pro Bowl in ’04 after racking up 13 sacks.

In 2006, Kerney tore his pectoral muscle nine games into the season, requiring season-ending surgery.

Kerney then decided to opt out of his final two years of his contract, and signed with the Seattle Seahawks for six-years and $39.5 million.

Kerney did not disappoint in his first year in Seattle, racking up 14.5 sacks and earning NFC Defensive Player of the Year honors.

Unfortunately, Kerney was lost seven games into a dismal 2008 season, as he hurt his shoulder that he had surgery on in the offseason. Kearney would have a second surgery, ending his season.
