This is SO boring that I cannot imagine that too many people will care, but I read this earlier today regarding the Lions and Jason Hanson being at odds on a new contract: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 ... on-hanson/
Since Steven Hauschka is still a FA, I was thinking about maybe Seattle extending a contract to Hanson. I know that he played nearby at Washington State, and maybe that would help draw him back to the West Coast. Though he is in his mid-40s, he can still boom it (16-19 from 40-49, and 2-3 from 50+). He is a bit more consistent than Hauschka was from deep, though to be fair, he also played indoors. His touchback numbers are about the same as Hauschka's as well. He also doesn't line-drive his XPAT kicks as Hauschka is sometimes wont to do.
Hanson is in his mid-40s, but he is still booming it. Maybe he would want to play here to get a ring and something like 2/3.5M would entice him to do so?
I like Hauschka as a kicker and all, but this might be one of my favorite low-key signings if Seattle can get it done. Just a thought.
Yeah, kickers, I know. It's the offseason. What can I say?
