I know it's been mentioned but i put my vote in for Jovan Haye. He got pushed out by young talent but i read one article that he had put on some weight and was not cut for lack of production. I say Jovan and Balmer could be our starters with McClain and Fua rotating in and gaining experience slower.

Seahawks have released DT Jay Alford. Drafted by the Giants when they had a great line. Played DT DE and can longsnap.

That really surprises me. I thought he was pretty high on their depth chart. I wish we had a guy like him in place of Brown.


I dont know what is left in the tank but he only had 2 sacks last year down from past years.....I dont know if an injury was in play or not.If that plays into getting him that about what we have with brown.

I doubt Alex Brown would replace Hardy, they're still looking towards the future and he'd just be a stop gap. Hardy has all the tools and has shown flashes, doubt more time on the bench will help him develop.

But Hardy is a guy that was a 6th round rookie last year that only saw limited playing time and hasn't played a down of preseason under a new defensive scheme and I'm not even sure he's practiced yet. He's shown flashes, but this is no "Cam Newton must him play him immediately" situation. I think Greg Hardy is an optimal rotational guy *as long as* Alex Brown is as solid as I remember him being. If not, Hardy it is.

Hardy's draft position was a mistake, IMO. He was rumored to have an attitude problem and was uncoachable. Had he come out a year earlier I believe he was one of the top ranked DE's.

However, Brown looks to be very solid but I don't want to see up and comers lose reps to short term vets in what's looking like a relatively non competitve season. I'd just assume see the young guys get as many reps as possible.

While he's certainly the exception, just remember than James Harrison went undrafted altogether.

I just hope we are hovering over any Steeler or Packer cuts. They seem to know how to draft and acquire talent.

Packer WRs- absolutely.

Steeler offensive players?? Not so much.

As for defense- unless their players are cut because they are playing in the wrong scheme and we think they translate better to a 4-3, we wouldn't exactly want their defensive players since, they play a 3-4 not a 4-3 and many positions don't translate that well.

Still do not understand why we didn't pull the trigger.

Read in one of the comments to the article that he was wanting $5+ per year. For that price, I can understand why we did not make a move for him.

He is nowhere near worth that price.

Interested in seeing the terms of the deal.

The Falcons may cut a decent cb after signing Hayden

I would imagine Alex Brown would start over Greg Hardy if he were signed. Hell, it might let us release Everette Brown rather than just bury him.


I think they would use him more for run defense and turn Hardy loose on passing downs
