IMO the seahawks should trade up a few spots in the draft and get jonathan stewart. he fills a need there, plus he would be a local favorite.


Dat's a good idear right dere. ;-D

I wish that were possible, but I don't think it is. If we move up to get an RB we're going to have to shell out money we don't have under the cap. In other words, the Seahawks are likely to take a position in the first round that doesn't pay high, like TE. Then in the second round we'll grab from the leftovers. Remember, we still have to pay for another WR (possibly Hackett again) before everything is said and done because Deion Branch is going to be out for at least the first half of the season.

I would love to see Jonathan Stewart up here, but I just don't see how that's going to be possible with our salary cap woes and management trying hard not to give up on SA. I expect Shaun to be safe this year, although I really wish that wasn't the case.

Who knows? Maybe SA will find that fountain of youth that let Brett Favre come back to a good 2007 after lackluster seasons in 05 and 06. They really just need one more season out of SA if they go RB in this draft, unless they draft an idiot.

So say they don't make a move to free up space or jump up in the draft and they have to get back-end RB talent. This is certainly the year to do it. They could be getting someone like Jamaal Charles, Mike Hart, Ray Rice, Allen Patrick, or even Matt Forte, all of whom could develop into decent NFL RBs. They have the luxury of having the need at the right time, and they shouldn't have to overpay for their pick, as deep as this class is.

The few times the Lions chose to play Duckett he played as well as any back we had, including KJ when he was healthy. He looked to be running hard and making quick decisions.
As for the 5-year contract-an NFL contract is all about the upfront money. NFL shredders are almost as full of contracts with years remaining than they are Roger's evidence.
