    Re: Seahawks | Team to meet with Burleson

    If we let go of Burleson for a 3rd round pick.. it's almost like a 4th round. Since the Seahawks pick 31st. It's close enough to 4th.

    I, for one, do not want to see Nate go for a 4th round pick.

    Good point! But I also think it comes down to what the Vikings have put as a $$$$ amount on him in the office. They more than likely set a max $$$ they would match before they even put the tender on him. We will have to see how it turns out.

    Glad to see the site back up and running!


    Hope that we match what ever offer that Seattle throws at Burly!

    burly is perfect in this offense.by all means match any offer...love the nate

    I'd match it if it wasn't too big, but I really have a feeling that Seattle is gonna make it one that we will end up passing on, now that we have $13 million invested in Hutch this season. I bet the frontload Burly's deal.
    I think they will have a hard time frontloading his deal and thinking it will screw us over... cause the difference was when we did that to them to try and screw them over in getting Hutch, we have a lot of cap room to do it, and they don't... I don't think seattle will or can make an offer that would be way to steep for the Vikings to match.

    We don't have that much cap room left now with Hutch's $13 million on the books this year. Seattle could very easily give him a roster bonus, instead of a signing bonus, that would definitely keep us from signing him, especially when we still have 4 good WR's on our roster.

    Personally, when we gave Burleson a low level tender, I think we were basically saying that we want a draft pick and are planning on letting Burleson go. If we truly wanted to keep him, we would have given him the high level tender, which was not that much more money. I think we basically chose Koren over Burleson, which I think was back words. I would have taken Burleson over Koren any day.

    Oh well. I am excited to see Williamson actually get a shot at some serious playing time this year, in an offense that he ca really excel in.
    I think we can't ignore what Koren also brings with his return ability.

    I hope we resign Burleson because I believe that our new offense is built for his style of play with him catching slants out of the slot position.

    Re: Seahawks | Team to meet with Burleson

    The top of the hour sports update on KFAN radio (3:05 pm) stated that Nate is close to signing an offer sheet with Seattle.

    And resigned Robinson and Offord, and we still need a Safety, Nickle and a QB (Matt Schaub please)!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but Seattle picks 31st in the 1st round. I don't believe that holds true for every round in the draft.
