no link, NFLN, Mike Lombardi said the seahawks took the Franchise tag off of Leroy Hill after they drafted Curry.

Dumbass should've signed while he could've.

Probably more of an ILB.

Unfortunately, Lombardi is also the guy that reported Cassel's new contract. :hmmm:

He also said we gave Cassel a 6-year contract with $36M in guarantees.

I think if you factor in the following: weak draft, no 2nd rd pick, Vet signings so far, etc

we could see them be active come monday or tuesday with remaining FA vets. Guys like Tauscher or Runyon(recovering from knee) a back like McCalister or Rudi johnson, maybe Edge once he gets cut. Only if they get rid of LJ.

Mostly OL though.

I wouldn't be surprised to see us bring in a few dozen undrafted free agents too...

I agree. they won't effect the cap but $$$ wise we could probably beat out a few teams since KC hasn't spent out on a bunch of bonus's this offseason.

This guy is a solid veteran. Can we confirm if he is an IL or an OB? I think we still have a need at OB.

So they drafted a guy so they could release their young franchised LB?

Talk about spinning your wheels.

Mark Tauscher would be a great addition for this football team.
Hopefully they can identify a young RT (today) to come in and get ready while the vet holds that spot down for a year or two.

I'd also bring in a guy like Marques Harris from San Diego.
He can help out at LB. As can Hill.

Dre Bly and/or Ken Lucas would be great acquisitions to come in and mentor the young lions at Cornerback.

I fully expect that to happen.

I wouldn't be surprised if we signed him. I wouldn't be surprised if it was 6 years. I wouldn't be surprised if it was $36M in total contract value.

I'd be UTTERLY shocked if he got $36M guaranteed.
