Just a day after I was pretty much flying through the roof over the signing of Colin Cole, the Seattle Seahawks just made a signing that made me happy! Just hours ago TJ Houshmandzadeh agreed to a 5 year, $40 million deal ($15 million guaranteed) with the Seahawks, making him the biggest offensive signing of free agency so far.And just because this blog has been deprived of happy fandom this football off-season, I present to you more from the same post of SSR that I linked to above!
YES!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!! I’ve been waiting for Ruskell to get off his chair and make a significant signing to improve their biggest need. Now with that said, this pretty much implies Bobby Engram is a goner and the chances of drafting Michael Crabtree took a nosedive, but this is a step in the right direction for rebuilding the offense.Getting back to the Eagles, though, after all of the campaigning I have done for the Eagles to sign Houshamanilly, I'm not upset at all, especially if the rumor that I reported a few days ago (sorry, it's 11:34 at night and I don't feel like searching for the link). Anyway, in a nutshell, Housh's agent lied to the Eagles, saying that he would go to them for less $ but the Eagles did research and it turned out Housh (and/or his agent) was actually wanted more money from the Eagles than other teams. If that rumor is true, then I don't blame the Eagles for not signing him.
For once, Seattle will finally have a receiver who isn’t 6 feet or shorter to throw to. Matt Hasselbeck and Seneca Wallace will have a fighting chance on fade passes into the end zone.
Next up is to rebuild the disastrous and aging offensive line.
Now if you’ll excuse me, YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now if we can only TRADE FOR ANQUAN BOLDIN! and DRAFT BEANIE WELLS! Hell, this off-season has been so depressing, I'd even take a trade for Torry Holt or a Marvin Harrison signing has a free agency win, but come on Eagles, everyone is projecting it, DRAFT BEANIE WELLS!
