I wonder if any team is desperate enough to make a run at Seneca Wallace

Seahawks' pending free agents

Starters
Comment
RB Shaun Alexander
-He earned a big contract, but how big?

LG Steve Hutchinson
-He's not going anywhere; the next franchise player?

FB Mack Strong
-Hit his peak at age 34; he'll be back.

Key backups
DT Rocky Bernard
-Some team will pay for Rocky's Shakedown.

TE Ryan Hannam
-Unsung grunt does dirty work.

WR Joe Jurevicius
-10 TDs will be worth money to someone.

FS Marquand Manuel
-Showed NFL he could start for many teams.

RB Maurice Morris
-A solid backup when healthy.

Others

DE Rodney Bailey
-Versatility got him into line rotation.

LB Kevin Bentley
-Solid nickel 'backer was big in stopping Steve Smith.

S John Howell
-Limited to 10 games because of hamstring injury.

P Tom Rouen
-Emergency pickup had poor Super Bowl.

DE Joe Tafoya
-Made people take notice at times.

WR Peter Warrick
-Might stay if Jurevicius goes


CB Jimmy Williams
-Lost punt-return job in playoffs.

Restricted*


K Josh Brown
-Super Bowl aside, one of league's best young kickers.


OT Wayne Hunter
-Might not have a place with Womack and Willis there.


QB Seneca Wallace
-Too much time invested to let him go.

*Team must tender offer by March 2 to retain right of first refusal.

Alexander will be franchised again ...........

They would give up Hutchinson in order to keep Alexander.

Oddly enough, most people think they'd franchise Hutchinson before Alexander.

They promised Alexander he wouldn't be franchised again if he signed their one year franchise offer this past year.

What exactly does the "Franchise" Tag mean?

I think it has something to do with being a bargaining chip. :shrug:

If a team franchises a player they agree to pay him an average of the top 5 salarys at his position, or 120% over his previous years salary, whichever is greater.

At that point they now have the right to match any offer tendered to the player by another team, if they choose not to match said offer than the other team must trade two first round draft picks for the player.
