Seatle Fans ....Alexander contract

Postby Tbones » Fri Dec 09, 2005 6:34 am

I thought they were in the works of a deal???


Seahawks | Alexander comments on contract talks Published Fri Dec 9 2:04:00 a.m. ET 2005

(KFFL) Mike Sando, of the Tacoma News Tribune, reports Seattle Seahawks RB Shaun Alexander was on KJR radio Thursday, Dec. 8, and he said that his contract negotiations haven't gone anywhere this season. This is consistent with what has been happening, or not happening, with his contract going all the way back to last year. His direct quote was, "You don't want to know" when asked about the status of contract talks.

They've been "in the works" for a long time.

the Hawks' are as smart as the Houston Texans in the 4th quarter.

Alexander wants to stay in Seattle, his family is happy and he is, but they say he is too old??? he's like 28.

Ya think the Seahawks owners, who is the second richest man in the world would maybe give em a heads up to pay him the measley money.

Many teams in the league hope he does - obviously you are ignoring a little thing called the "Salary Cap" and what it will mean to your 'keets if they cave to SA's demands... Better win the 'Bowl in the next year or two if you do - forget about being competitive past that...

SEA would love to sign Alexander obviously but there is ALOT of money tied into guys like Walter Jones, Hass, D Jax, etc.

From what you read they want to see what the market is for some of the FA's RB's like Edge & offer accordingly.

I read this earlier. Amazing.

Maybe he's after the monster payday, but somehow I don't think he's trying to set any payroll records. Pay the man a fair deal by todays standards and he'll be happy.

The guy's a class act! ;-D ;-D ;-D
(as an added plus... he's on my fantasy team)!

I don't think Seattle is going to offer him what he wants. In the end, I think they'll aim to re-sign Hutchinson, and there won't be enough money left for Alexander. The real this to consider is this: it is the offensive line and system that makes Alexander the great RB he is. I'm not saying he isn't good, but he is just blessed with a great situation. Seatlle will probably let him walk, sign one of the many free agents, and they won't miss a beat. (Ok, they might miss a small beat, but they will keep rolling, with the ability to aquire other players of need).

As much as i like alexander, i have to agree with bigGAME: with that o-line any quality back will have success. Didn't morris run for 100yds and a td in the second half of a game this year? I was not aware that seattle had cap issues, so now this contract stalling makes more sense.

It seems that I'm in the minority when it comes to Seattle fans (or, at least I was pre-season), but I think we need to re-sign Shaun no matter what, whatever it takes. He and the Jones-anchored O-Line are basically what has been carrying the team this year. Week after week, despite slow starts or whatever obstacle, the guy simply goes out there and gets the job done.

So, for Shaun, the franchise, and for fantasy football, let's hope that somehow (however doubtful), Alexander remains a 'Hawk.
