I spoke with Gbaja-Biamila’s agent this afternoon, who said he has heard the Seahawks are bringing in three defensive ends this afternoon, but KGB is not one of them. He was released by the Green Bay Packers last week after recording a half sack so far this season.

Tim Ruskell’s staff apparently set up these tryouts over the weekend, perhaps knowing the news on Kerney was not going to be good. KGB’s agent said he didn’t know who the three players are they are bringing in.

    Did Jason Babin already get picked up?

  2. Nope, but don’t expect him back, we only keep the extra place kickers.

  3. hawk9680 says:

    Why would we not bring him in?! He is a top notch class guy and a force on the line. Is there an injury or something?

  4. “KGB’s agent said he didn’t know who the three players are they are bringing in.” I wouldn’t suppose the ‘Seahawks Insider” would know who they brought in….would he?

  5. airbags says:

    i don’t think timmay even knows, in much the same way he didn’t know what a bunch of busts he’s drafted.

  6. truehawk says:

    shut up airbags..lets get real here. Use some common sense before you make stupid comments.
    If the Hawks were 6-2 right now you wouldnt be dsaying that crap.

    Go jump on someone elses wagon…we dont need that negativity in our house!

    Dork….plus it just makes you look like a fairweather fan….

    I can’t believe they wouldn’t even reach out to gauge his interest. The first thing I thought of when I saw he was released was how he would fill a need for the Seahawks. Give him a guaranteed contract for the rest of the season and another incentive-laden deal for next year as well. Then you can cut him after this season if he doesn’t produce and you cut him, it’s a small cap hit.

    C’mon Ruskell, pull your head out and reach out to these players to see if they can help improve your team. You must have Cingular rollover minutes that you don’t want to waste otherwise why wouldn’t you place a call?

    I trust our FO staff will pick the right person in filling our much need role…I mean look at what they did with our recievers. I was actually impressed by our fill in recievers…too bad they ended up getting hurt too though…damn what a season … never seen anything like it…

  9. WiscCory says:

    Why isn’t Wrotto getting a chance to start? Spencer would be available to play guard.

    Preseason doesn’t count for much – but the offense sure looked a heluva lot better then…LOL. Wrotto filled in well for Spencer.

  10. OutSydeDog says:

    I usually don’t watch the line play in general, but I saw Spencer get absolutely used a couple of times. Locklear doesn’t run block well and Willis has a hard time pass blocking. What a mess. I hope they can figure it out.

  11. mister andersen says:

    Ruskell never seems to look at veteran guys, choosing to pick up young guys with more long-term potential. That obviously blew up in his face with the WR situation. But now that we are looking at re-building it probably makes more sense to pass on a buy like KGB. Not sure if Babin is out there or not.

    What a gross season.

  12. I wouldn’t think that Mr. Ruskell would bring in KGB.Because everyone knows that KGB talked back to his grandmother when he was 8 years old.Mr Ruskell just can’t have that kind of player on his team.
