    Housh a Seahawk

    From Rotoworld:


    T.J. Houshmandzadeh-WR-Bengals Mar. 2 - 5:45 pm et

    Free agent T.J. Houshmandzadeh will sign a multi-year deal with the Seahawks, according to the National Football Post.
    ESPN has picked up the report. Seattle was offering at least $2 million more than both the Vikings and Bengals. The Seahawks were also desperate for a durable wideout. Houshmandzadeh was a flanker in Cincinnati and that's Deion Branch's position in Seattle. Branch could now be moved to the slot or released, as it was rumored he might be in the winter.

    Sources: Houshmandzadeh heads West

    In what turned out to be a tougher decision than expected, wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh chose the Seattle Seahawks over the Minnesota Vikings and the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday afternoon, according to multiple sources.

    Sources told ESPN's Michael Smith the deal was worth more than $40 million for five years, with more than $15 million guaranteed.

    Though he had hoped to make his decision Sunday, Houshmandzadeh, pressured by Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer to stay in Cincinnati, and the Vikings to stay around the Minneapolis area during a visit, escaped from a Minneapolis hotel Sunday night, flew to Los Angeles and took Monday morning trying to make up his mind. He weighed offers from three teams along with their quarterbacks and their teams' chances of winning.

    The final decision was Seattle.

    The 31-year-old Houshmandzadeh was considered the wide receiver prize of free agency. He caught a combined 204 passes for 2,043 yards and 16 touchdowns over the past two seasons in Cincinnati. The 6-1, 189-pound receiver had a 90-catch season in 2006. He tied for the NFL receptions lead in 2007 with 112 catches and earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl.

    His departure in Cincinnati could mean Chad Johnson might have to stay in Cincinnati another season. Johnson tried to get traded from the Bengals before the 2008 season.
    Phew, good thing we re-signed Bartell!

    Great, another big time receiver that we get to play two times a year. Feel free to post the article here if you find it I don't have to much time right now.

    That's what I was thinking. Bartell shouldn't have too big of a problem handling these guys. Good thing we got him back.

    I predict the Seaducks to finish last in the NFC West.
