    Seahawks: Brown gets franchise tag

    Seahawks prevent kicker from being free agent

    KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) -- The Seattle Seahawks may have learned from their mistake of a year ago, designating clutch kicker Josh Brown as their franchise player on Thursday.

    Unless a long-term contract can be reached, Brown will receive the one-year, $2.078 million tender offer for the 2007 season -- the average of the top five paid kickers in the NFL.

    Last year, the Seahawks chose not to use the franchise tag on Pro Bowl guard Steve Hutchinson. Instead, they used the transition designation on him. That move would have saved about $600,000 -- but backfired when the Minnesota Vikings signed away Hutchinson with unprecedented "poison pill" provisions in his contract that Seattle could not feasibly match.

    By designating Brown a franchise player, another team would have to surrender two first-round draft choices were they to sign him - a steep a price for a kicker.
    No poison pill this year for the Walrus!
    Goo-goo-ga-joob!

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Damn. He would be a great one to poison too.

    I have seen him jack up a returner on a kick off. He is the rowdiest kicker in the league.
