Now the Seahawks are looking to sign Winfield.
They have a good GM.
Winfield was smiling Friday as he explained that he hasn't practiced for the past three or four weeks. The reality is the Vikings long ago devised a plan to get Winfield rest late in the season. That plan revolved around taking care of a guy who is in his 14th season.
Not so sure Pete Carroll will roll with this, he likes to have the competitive camps and high energy practicesQuote:
The coaches are taking care of me during the week.' That's the time that usually the legs feel a little heavy but I feel great. They're cutting off my reps in practice and letting me play on Sundays."
Last bit is the Hawks haven't had any issues with bringing in veterans and later releasing them whether it was Owens released in August or Braylon Edwards released in early December
Either way I have no hard feelings about the Harvin trade. I think it was best for both sides and wish him the best on the rest of his NFL career. You can't blame him for his frustrations with the QB situation that was in place and lack of passing game, but I think he could have approached it in a better fashion. With a player like AD on your team, the main focus will always be towards the running game. Too much to handle for some WR's....
It was fun watching AD run all over them though. The first play being a Peterson 79 yard run to the 1 was priceless. Never heard the "12th" man so quiet.
I knew Ponders stats were going to look horrible, but not THAT bad. When I saw the 63 yards passing I could do nothing more than just laugh.
The Seahawks are building the team to be good over the next 2 years max before they run into CAP problems and the players start to leave as fast as they are coming in right now. It will be great for them if they get the one and done but they won't keep this roster together for more than a few years.
Vikings waived 19 today who will end up in Seattle?
TE Colin Anderson, RB Joe Banyard, S Brandan Bishop, OL Travis Bond, CB Brandon Burton, WR Stephen Burton, DT Everett Dawkins, S Darius Eubanks, CB Bobby Felder, TE Chase Ford, OL Brandon Keith, DT Anthony McCloud, LB Tyrone McKenzie, OL Kevin Murphy, DT Spencer Nealy, DE D’Aundre Reed, WR Rodney Smith, WR Adam Thielen, DE Collins Ukwu.
Without Winfield or Harvin on the current active roster this is what's now available to help build that powerhouse
