  • With their minimal contracts, we get next to no salary cap relief by getting rid of either. Having too many good targets in the passing game is hardly a bad thing.

    That being said, I'd listen to trade offers. I doubt we'd get more than a third for either, however, and that wouldn't be worth it. Tate is a clutch guy, and while Baldwin disappointed me somewhat last year, he's still useful.

    Way too soon to start worrying about crap like this.

    I imagine Seattle will place a 2nd round RFA tag on Baldwin next year and hope a team steps up to help them recoup that mid rounder from the Harvin trade.

    Tate is going to be a restricted free agent as well I believe? Or will he be unrestricted? He'll be 4 years into his career, dont you need 5 to be unrestricted?

    They changed it in the new CBA, unrestricted after the 4th year. The bright side to that is you get to keep Baldwin for dirt cheap.

    This, Pete isn't going to screw around with the chemestry that Wilson and Tate have developed.
    Why is bringing in Harvin an automatic assumption to canning a POSITIVE??
    Obo will likely be shown the exit door, but Baldwin and Tate?, I'd say are safe at home.

  • I think Tate and Baldy stay in 2013.

    However, if Harvin blows up the Seahawks offense, Superbowl or not, Bevell is going to be a head coach somewhere. Depeneding on the team that hires him, I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if Flynn and Tate or Baldy follow him.

    thinking Idzik in New York, and the leash that Rex Ryan and Sanchez will be on, might be a destination.

  • There has to be someone out there that would give us a 1st for Flynn, Baldwin, Obo and Washington. C'mon...someone. We are a pass rush away from history. C'mon...someone.

  • After thinking about it, Tate will stay for a variety of reasons.

    -To take over PR/KR duties from Leon (no I dont want Harvin doing PR/KR after signing a huge contract)
    -Although Harvin is greatly a better WR than Tate, Tate is a better deep threat and the best deep threat on the team.

    Why would we want to go and weaken a position that we just shored up? Crazy talk.

    You weaken the position by keeping too many of the same type of player. There are 3 different WR spots. With 3 different responsibilities and ideal attributes. You can't just keep all slot guys...

    It's crazy talk to think that you can just throw a slot WR out as a flanker and be fine.

    People realize there is a difference between a SS and a FS. You wouldn't play Kam Chancellor in Earls role. Well same with WR...

    Tate is not a slot guy. Just cause he's short doesn't make him a slot. Tate is a split end, end of story.

    Harvin is multi-dimensional. He'll play flanker or split end in two WR sets. They'll even put him and Rice to one side opposite a TE. He'll move to the slot in three WR sets. He'll line up in the backfield and be a threat to run or receive.

    Baldwin is a pure slot guy.
