Re: UFA's from Seattle

trufant won't be available... he'll get a deal or tagged.

DJ would be an upgrade, but only a minor one. we really need a guy like CJ/roy williams/fitzgerald to make a big impact on offensive rankings. and we need to not trade our #1 pick so we can get the DL guy for our defensive rankings.

Nice job of going back.

Matt Hasselbeck
Trent Dilfer
Senaca Wallace
Brock Huard
Charlie Frye
Brock Huard or Dilfer would be a good pick-up. Can anyone see Dilfer as a future coordinator of some kind later on in his life? Geez the dude went to Baltimore, the 49ers, and i think a few other teams to help adjust to new systems. Especially with Collins gone, I think Zorn will try to bring over one of his regulars to further help JC adjust yet again. Probably an older vet who we can get cheap.

I agree that building through the draft is best. I am in no way implying that we should rebuild our team based solely on former protoge's. I am talking about a subtle character who knows the system, can impact our effenciency, and work mostly behind the scenes at practice to get us going on the right track ASAP. I dont see us losing alot of players we currently have and i feel that Dano has learned (or starting to learn i.e. Lloyd, Archuleta... eeeeesh) from the Spurrier/Marty eras and has made a fair attempt (Landry, Cartwright, Cooley, Taylor, JC, Rogers...) at building through the draft and will continue to do so .

I think Dilfer might come, as the QB coach. He proved last year in SanFran that he no longer has the physical tools to be an NFL QB. However, he is a great teacher, won a SB as the starting QB, and is a tremendously smart guy. Also, Zorn is a lefty and JC didn't have great success with a lefty mentor before (MB?). Dilfer would be a great choice.
As for the Hawk FA's, wouldn't want a single one.

DJ Hackett will be 28 this year. That is not pretty old.

Re: UFA's from Seattle

yeah, spurrier's guys sucked, but they sucked at vet min, which is much better than being worthless with a $10mill signing bonus.

Re: UFA's from Seattle

I don't see the Seahawks letting Trufant get away.

I wouldn't mind taking a run at Hackett.

Of course, Zorn really doesn't have a "system" that guys played under unless he photocopied Holmgren's playbook.

Only an idiot would think that we would get the whole list but I would not be surprised to see a few follow Zorn to D.C.


Here's a list of the Hawks who will be free agents if not signed by March 1.

Unrestricted free agents
LB Kevin Bentley
PK Josh Brown
DT Chuck Darby
WR D.J. Hackett
TE Bennie Joppru
ILB Niko Koutouvides
OT Sean Locklear
TE Marcus Pollard
CB Marcus Trufant
OG Floyd Womack
DT Ellis Wyms

Restricted Free agents
RB Alvin Pearman
FB Leonard Weaver.
Of that group, I would be most interested in DJ Hackett as a bargain WR signing. He's 6'2" and should have a very good understanding of the offensive principles that Zorn is bringing here.

Re: UFA's from Seattle

none of these guys will come to the skins because Zorn has no system to impliment. He basically is doing everything here from scratch. Vinny is in charge of players anyway so we'll see some west coast system players.
