Seahawks Insider

Housh headed to Baltimore

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that former Seattle Seahawks receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh will sign a veteran minimum deal to play in Baltimore, joining ex-Seahawk Josh Wilson.

The deal is for one year, $855,000, so the Seattle Seahawks will be on the hook for $6.15 million.

Houshmandzadeh gives Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco another weapon, joining Anquan Boldin and Derrick Mason. Also, Donte Stallworth suffered a foot injury, so the Ravens were looking for some depth.

And they certainly are familiar with Houshmandzadeh, having faced him twice a year while he was in Cincinnati.

  1. Ravens. Figures. The perfect team for big, slow, mouthy tough guys.

    Looks like somebody else will be headed elsewhere…

    ESPN’s John Clayton reports that the Seahawks have placed RT Sean Locklear on the trade block.
    Clayton says Locklear “isn’t expected to be around by opening day,” so it sounds like he’ll be released if Seattle can’t find a taker. Due $5.45 million in 2010, that’s what’s going to happen if Clayton’s story is correct. He struggled in the preseason and Seattle is completely making over its roster, so the only outcome here that would surprise us would be Locklear starting Week 1.

  3. I can’t believe how bad Lock has looked this pre-season. I thought he’d solidify RT. Guess not.

  4. I hope the Ravens are terrible this year. I wanna hear Housh b!tch and moan. He better not complain about the wrong things though or Ray Lewis will (allegedly) kill him.

  5. How many safeties do we have? I heard somebody say earlier we had 5 counting Ellison and Babs. Now we have 3? Ness is listed as a DB?

    Some of you are psycho about getting rid of particular players. Terrill still here, Branch still here! You don’t think they’d actually get rid of #84 & #83 do you? Leave Mike Williams as the #1 receiver?

  7. I’ve always thought Locklear was a competent NFL-calibre tackle, but not up to protecting the QB’s blindside. I figured Locklear might be in trouble knocking down near-LT money when they drafted Okung and moved him, but once I saw the way Sean EMBARASSED HIMSELF in the preseason I knew he was gone. WTF? Couldn’t handle the big paychecks? No longer hungry?

    I’m not a psychiatrist and I couldn’t really care less. I played OL in Division I and I hated hearing my name called and Locklear just gave a clinic in why. NFL = Not For Long and if you’re putting your QB’s a** in peril every time he doesn’t hand the ball of and your running backs are getting killed every time they run your direction, it’s time to find another team or another job.

    So we got a temporary LT (Evans) until Okung’s ready to go, instant upgrades at RT (Polumbus or Dietrich-Smith) and upgrades at every starter and backup position on the OL with a bunch. Yes it’ll take them a bit to adjust to each other and perform as a unit, but I’ll take more talented guys that need work together over less talented guys who aren’t even performing at their max capabilities 100 times out of 100.

    Go Hawks!

    BobbyK, according to this link Ray Lewis is the guy who “recruited’ Whosyourmomma to the Ravens.
