    Bryce Fisher a Seahawk

    B. Fisher leaves Rams for Seahawks

    Rams defensive end Bryce Fisher sacks Arizona QB Josh McCown in the 2004 season opener.
    ( Robert Cohen/P-D)



    Defensive end Bryce Fisher, the Rams sack leader in 2004, is headed to the Seattle Seahawks. Fisher agreed to terms Tuesday on a four-year deal with the Seahawks worth $10 million.

    It will be a homecoming for Fisher, 27, a native of Renton, Wash., who attended Seattle Prep High.

    I get to go home, so Im excited about that, Fisher said Tuesday afternoon. I get a chance to play in front of the home fans every week.

    But Fisher also expressed some disappointment that the Rams didnt make a contract offer.

    Id been in contact with the Rams coaching staff and told them that I think Seattles going to make me an offer, and that if they make me an offer Im probably going to take it, Fisher said.

    But the Rams have made a commitment to Anthony Hargrove as their starting right end in 2005. They were interested in re-signing Fisher only as their No. 3 defensive end -- and at No. 3 defensive end prices.

    Fisher wanted a chance to be a starter, and be paid like a starter, an opportunity he will get in Seattle.

    So now, when the Rams play Seattle twice a year in what has become an intense and entertaining NFC West rivalry, they will face former Rams at both defensive end positions for the Seahawks: Fisher and Grant Wistrom.

    After being released by Buffalo at the end of the 2002 preseason, Fisher revived his career with the Rams. He appeared in only four games for St. Louis in 02, but became a regular part of the defensive line rotation in 03, finishing with 47 tackles and two sacks.

    When Wistrom signed a free-agent deal with Seattle following the 03 season, Fisher took over for him in the starting lineup in St. Louis. Fisher started the first 14 games of the 04 campaign before giving way to Hargrove in the starting lineup.

    He finished the season with a team-high 8 sacks and was seventh on the team in tackles

    It's all in the family.

    Seattle has Wistrom and Fisher.

    Cards have Warner (and the hammer still?)

    Whiners are the black sheep of the family. We don't allow them to have any of our old players.

    So I guess it would only be fair if we could take Marcus Trufant, Ken Hamlin, or Steve Hutchinson off their hands. C'mon Seattle, hand 'em over! It's only fair, even if they aren't free agents.

    The niners also got Matt Willig before he left for Carolina.
