here's an article from the Seahawk beat writer for the Tacoma Trib:
I don't know what to think.
The notion of Shaun not being a seahawk seems foreign to me. Sando (the Trib columnist) paints Shaun as a forgotten son, he's genuinely not. Outside of Hasselbeck, I can't think of another player (maybe
Chad Brown) that you want to see in uniform on gameday. I think I speak for a lot of fans.
Bailey would replace Ken lucas who's been very adept in coverage and generally considered a great value for our 2nd rd selection in 2001. Relegating him to our Nickle/Dime packages seems rather like a waste....but this is
Champ Bailey we're talking about.
Morris has turned a lot of heads with his quality substitutions. He's got fantastic breakaway speed, has shown he can catch out of the backfield, and in some circles (mostly U of O fans) is recognized a better football player than Onterrio Smith.
To entertain the notion that this trade will happen is to assume that Seattle and Shaun will otherwise part ways after 2004. I just don't see the any animosity for that to come to fruition.
And besides all that, we've become more desperate at DL than in the past 2 seasons (which frankly is unimaginable). I just can't see any effort (i.e. cap space) being put into another position.
Unless Seattle's subscribing to the method of overcompensating one position to feign the deficency of another, I just don't get it.
