Seahawks play waiting game.

The Seattle Seahawks finished one of the busiest weeks in team history last week and they have very little to show for it in the way of free agent signings. The team did manage to keep one of it's own.

 

The team played to host to free agents , defensive ends Hough Douglas, Vonnie Holiday , and Safety Kwamie Lassiter.

The Scoop.

The 31 year old Douglas would be a great assets to the team. The eight year veteran  who finished the 2002 season with 12 and a half sacks is intent on honoring his visits to the various teams who are seeking his aide. Douglas will visit Kansas City, Oakland Denver and the New York Giants before making a decision. 

 Lassiter is a former Arizona Cardinal player who is familiar with Hawk General manager Bob Ferguson.

Holiday could be just what the Seahawks need if Douglas is not available. Holiday was drafted in 1998 by Coach Mike  Holmgren when he was in Green Bay. It is highly unlikely that the Hawks would sign both Douglas and Holiday.

 The team added wide receiver Bobby Engram to it's resigned list.

It appears the team will lose both of it's kickers to free agency, punter Jeff Feagels has already signed with the New York Giants and kicker Ryan Lindel has had significant talks with the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bill. The Seahawks do have the right to match and offer that is given to Lindell.

Unsigned unrestricted free agents include qb Jeff George, de Ritch Owens, g Floyd Wedderburn, and dbWillie Williams

The Scoop:

Weddeburn started  ten games last year and  should return.Williams returned a fumble 25 yards for a touchdown in the win against Atlanta. Will it be enough for him to keep his job? Does he still have the speed ?

Restricted free agents are, lb Marcus bell, c J.P.Darche , dt  John Hilliard ,wr Darrel Jackson, lb Isaiah Kacyvenski, k Ryan Lindell, wr James Williams and dt Cedric Woodard.  

 The Scoop:

Jackson is a must, Bell and  Kacyvenski appear to be keepers. Who and what the team drafts could put Bell or Kacyvenski in surivial mode.
