Hawks sign another safety

Postby SeaWolf » Fri Mar 09, 2007 9:41 pm

How much money did we pay for Chicago's Green last year. I know he got hurt during training camp last year, but wasn't he suppose to start? Now we have added 2 safetys in the last 24 hrs, what does that hold for Green, or is this new guy a backup?

ESPN.com

Seattle Seahawks: On Friday, a day after making Deon Grant, the third highest paid safety in football, the Seahawks reach an agreement with Browns safety Brian Russell. Terms on the contract weren't available, but Russell becomes the second new safety added to the roster in 24 hours. Russell accepted a five-year deal.


The additions of Grant and Russell means the Seahawks won't re-sign starter Ken Hamlin, a Pro Bowl alternate who is a free agent and recently visited the New Orleans Saints.


The 28-year-old Russell has played with the Vikings and Browns during his six-year NFL career. He was an undrafted acquisition of the Vikings in 2001 and had a nine interception season in 2002 in Minnesota.

I'm hella happy, we have mike green, deon grant and brian russel.....of coarse there's thje downfall.....our hard hitting main man ken hamlin is on his way out.......why couldnt we leave russel away and resign hamlin? well hamlin was a smaller sized outside linebacker playing fs anyways, he was awesome against the run but very suspect against the pass.


we'll have to see how this pans out, but all i can say is that our deep secondary is better now with green, grant and russel than it was with hamlin, bouleware and babinoux(sp) since he played some safety too.

That is one reason I don't get player jerseys. Spend $$$$$ only for it to be outdated within a couple of years. I'll stick with my #12. ;-D

I imagine theyll play both Green and Russell a good amount in the preseason and then give the starting S position alongside Grant to whichever of the 2 performs best in preseason. It will be nice to have 3 solid pass-coverage safeties though, since if there was one thing we really needed o improve last year it was our pass coverage. Personally now Im only concerned about the Hawks' offense if anything...their defense as it is now should be quite strong.
