Could the Seattle Seahawks cut Houshmandzadeh?

Published on August 30, 2010 by     Seahawk Fanatic

As one of the most talented players on the Seattle Seahawks roster and one year removed from signing a five-year, $40 million contract, T.J. Houshmandzadeh seems like a virtual lock to make the Seahawks.

But according to some local analysts, that’s not guaranteed.

710 ESPN Seattle’s Brock Huard said Monday on the Brock and Salk show that if Houshmandzadeh’s talent and production aren’t enough to outweigh the issues that come with his outspoken personality, it wouldn’t be out of the question for the Seahawks to cut him.

“What’s very clear I think to me and a lot of analysts is T.J is not a No. 1 guy,” Huard said. “He is not a guy on the outside who is going to run a go route, that’s going to run a post route, that’s going to be what Pete Carroll wants, and that’s playmakers, touchdown makers at that position. When I factor in those variables and I look again at this whole attitude and as much as Pete preaches “all in” …I just don’t know how that will co-exist long-term, if it can co-exist long-term with the way that Pete Carroll wants to go about his business.

“Would (cutting Houshmandzadeh) be a surprise to me? Not at all.”

Listen to Brock Huard:

It wouldn’t be a surprise to Seahawks analyst and former quarterback Warren Moon, either. While he doesn’t think money would be a factor in the decision because of the uncapped year, Moon said Houshmandzadeh’s attitude could be.

Listen to Warren Moon:

“I think team chemistry has a lot to do with it,” Moon said Monday on the Kevin Calabro show. “It just depends on how Pete (Carroll) thinks T.J. is fitting in with the team chemistry and whether he thinks he can still be that big-play receiver that he used to be earlier in his career. I just don’t know if that is his role anymore. His role might be more of a possession receiver, more of a slot receiver. And maybe that’s something he doesn’t want to do. So, we’ll just have to wait and see how it all shakes out.

Listen to Danny O’Neil:

“But it wouldn’t surprise me. No way.”
