The Seattle Seahawks’ decision to release veteran receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh makes sense on a couple of levels.
The Seahawks are rebuilding, they have some promising young receivers and Houshmandzadeh was a potentially miscast holdover from the previous regime.
Cutting Houshmandzadeh makes much more sense if the Seahawks find a proven receiver to replace him.
Vincent Jackson, anyone?
The Seahawks did receive permission from the San Diego Chargers earlier this offseason to speak with the unsigned Jackson. Early word was that Jackson wanted more money than the Seahawks were willing to spend. But what’s a few million for a Seattle team that will eat up to $7 million in waving goodbye to Houshmandzadeh?
“I really believe Vincent Jackson is headed to Seattle,” Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated tweeted Saturday. “We’ll see.”
“SEA always a player, as long as price comes down,” Kevin Acee, Chargers beat reporter for the San Diego Union-Tribune, tweeted.
Trotter previously covered the Chargers for the Union-Tribune.
