  • There are a few players that I am dreaming about in a Seahawks uniform. Larry Fitzgerald being my vote. I know it's pretty risky to trade for Fitz with all of the money he is owed with his back loaded contract. But the Russ to Fitz connection would be something special, none the less. What do you guys think? If you select "Other", let us know who !

  • I'm going with Ndamukong Suh. I'd go absolutely insane if the Hawks somehow pulled off a trade to land him.

    More than likely won't happen though, but still. It's a nice dream.

    That would be amazing... If we could somehow beef up our pass rush, or defense would be ridiculous. Wouldn't you think we'd have to give up some quality players or picks for him?

  • Most of the guys on the list are either has-beens or are locked up in big contracts, so I don't think it's a good list unless we're just dreamin'. If we're just dreaming, then Fitzgerald is the obvious choice. If we're trying to be realistic, Umeniora would get me moderately excited, depending on contract and his role. I think he may have a few productive years left, but he's past his prime.

  • Jared Allen I would be most excited for.

    I would be excited for Fitzgerald, but I just don't think he would fill as much of a need as Allen would.

    Oh hell yeah we'd have to give the Lions an arm and a leg. It'd be worth it though, in my mind. I'd give them a 1st rounder or two but that's why I'm posting here while watching Patrice O'Neal clips and not running the team.

  • Other: Geno Atkins or Haloti Ngata. They would do more for our team than any receiver in the game.
    Rams bet status: honored. Bradford still sucks.

  • Jared Allen, that guy is a beast and a character.


    That Pink Caddy with longhorns on the front, the daisy dukes...the potential for Real Rob comedy is limitless.


    I could see him finishing his career in MN though. I don't know anything about his contract though.

    Because all the others on that list are so likely to make the team? :roll: The OP even mentioned "dream".

  • I don't want to trade for anyone and their big contract, or sign any big contract FA's. I want to keep building through the draft, and re-signing the guys we have to longer contracts.

    The only exception I would make is a proven, still young pass rusher who won't break the bank, but that is a pipe dream.

  • Definitely Fitzgerald, the rest are old, tired and injured. Maybe Jared Allen but he is getting up there too.

  • Add another vote for Fitzgerald. If he was playing on the east coast he would be a legend. The dude makes catches that amaze. I love to watch him play if he was here at least he would get the ball..Vincent Jackson is a similar talent but he has a pretty big head and not a team first guy

  • I like Fitz, but he'd be my last choice. He had a huge down year last season, he's 30 years old on opening day and might be declining already, and he's on one of biggest, most unfortunate contracts in the NFL. If Arizona released him then showing interest would make sense. But Seattle can't afford to trade away high draft picks and $16 million a year for a guy that had 798 yards and 4 TDs last season. And before anyone says his QBs sucked, they were the same QBs in 2011 when he posted 1411 yards and 8 TDs.

    I voted for Jared Allen. First, Jared Allen is really good at getting to the QB. Second, he's only on a 1 year deal, he wouldn't burden the long term cap situation very much. Third, he probably wouldn't cost a ton to trade for. Fourth, he'd play the games wearing Jorts if the NFL would let him. I don't normally like total rednecks or people that remind me of Will Ferrell, but Allen is one of my favorite non-Seahawks.

  • I'd go with Jared Allen. Not sure how much Fitz has left in the tank. Jared Allen would have made about 3 games of difference last year; we win in Detroit and Miami, because we turn a TD series into a punt series with his QB pressure. We also would have won in Atlanta and probably be playing this Sunday. Fitz would be great, sure, but we scored and had the lead late in the 4th in all those games. Our offense wasn't really the issue.

    I'm dying right now! JORTS! HAHAHA! You win the internet kearly. Shows over folks, nothing to see here!

    Oh my God thank you so much for the great laugh! As badly as I want Suh, Allen is right up there with him in my books now and is probably a more realistic possibility for the reasons you listed. He could probably come in and have a Patrick Kearly, I mean Kerney, season or two for the Hawks as well.

  • I voted other for Geno Atkins.

    Fitz and Revis would be luxury additions but not as important as a pass rushing 3 Tech.

    On a sidenote, Atkins was a 4th round pick (#120) in 2010. Walter Thurmond could still become a great CB but damn imagine if we had drafted Atkins at (#111). What a steal by the Bengals!

    Out of realistic possiblities I'm hoping for Randy Starks.
