  • It's time for Pete to back away from being the driving force behind some of these personnel decisions

    Score is 0 for 3 now, Harvin (unable to be used effectively, Graham (unable to be used effectively), Richardson (not worth the price paid 2nd round pick and $ million for 1 year, for 4th rd. pick. Go big or go home doesn't always work. Suh will want more than $11 million/year and that is a big price to pay for a player who is 31. Richardson said his deal with Minnesota was for a higher offer than the Hawks made to him.

    Let's hope Vita Vea fall to the Hawks at 15 b/c of his hamstring pull.

    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!

    All signs are pointing that way. Apparently, the Seahawks did NOT offer Richardson $11M. A lot is riding on the Suh deal.



    So he didn't just chose the Vikings over Hawks with all else being equal

    It was a good trade/gamble....Kearse was already going to get released. Sheldon would either be our future or he walks and we get a comp pick from him for one year rental. Be amazing if we replace him with Suh who is a better player and doesn't mess up the comp pick.


    Cakewalk to the SB?? Lol we were going into Philly or Minny and winning easy and then beating the Pats?

  • hawknation2018 wrote:Graham and S. Richardson should each net 4th round comp picks (at a minimum). P. Richardson should net a 5th or 6th.

    Dickson's contract is probably structured in such a way that it won't cancel out any of the three comp picks, ie. he is valued as a 7th and only cancels out one of our other free agents (Shead, Willson, Joeckel, Aboushi, Lacy, etc.)

    Shead signed a deal for $3,350,000, which is on par with Dickson's deal.


    Shead was released by the Hawks officially so his contract does not cancel out any free agents the Hawks sign. If the Hawks want any comps next year, then we’ll need other teams to sign Joeckel, Maxwell, and Willson to decent contracts.

    More like "the possibility of a 3rd/4th round pick".


    Suh would not cost us a compensatory pick because he was released.

    Okay, good point. I will concede Suh, but the point still stands.

    That's exactly why they're looking at Suh, and bringing in lots of guys that have been cut. In a sense, yes they can guarantee a comp pick if they stick to signing players that were cut or sign players later down the road in May when the cutoff is. They can also still trade for guys as well.

    That's fair, but, we cannot ignore that they have backed themselves into a corner now. Compensation picks come with asterisks -- non-trivial ones.

  • Locking this for the moment.

    This will re-open in the NFL forum.

    If someone wants to start a thread about compensatory picks or just continue to post about their overall concerns about the direction of the team, please use the relevant threads.

  • That is an extremely low offer., even if he wasn't particularly game breaking last year.

  • Signed for less than I expected and rumors that were going around. Vikings are all in for '18. They want that ring.

  • Bennett and Richardson have a combined cap hit of about $15M and the Seahawks let them walk.

    Hopefully they have a plan.

  • wow 6.5 million offer and he signed for 8 plus incentives. If that's all that he's worth, Suh cannot be drawing 15+ again, but the team has to up its game it cant keep trying to offer peanuts if it wants somebody. they could not have been serious about Richardson at all
