The Seattle Seahawks have rescinded their franchise tag on outside linebacker Leroy Hill, making him a free agent.

A team spokesman confirmed the surprising move Sunday, a day after the team made Wake Forest star outside linebacker Aaron Curry the fourth overall pick in the NFL draft.
It gives Seattle salary cap space of $8.3 million - the value of the guaranteed contract for 2009 the team was obligated to offer Hill as its franchise player.

Curry is expected to get at least $25 million guaranteed in his new contract.

Saturday, Seahawks president and general manager Tim Ruskell said he was still in negotiations for a long-term deal with Hill.

Coach Jim Mora marveled after selecting Curry that the team's defense now has, along with Lofa Tatupu, "three good, young linebackers who are all impact-type players and it is an exciting group. It will be fun to watch them grow together."

i thought the same thing, but we have enough linebackers already.


Its time to address the DL, but Im not sure what Free Agents are even available.

Well it depends what they plan on doing with Ayers. If they plan on asking him to bulk up and play with his hand in the dirt a fair bit....

But then, on the other hand this guy would probably be our best LB unless I'm thinking of someone else?

But from what I understand, he will likely resign with the Seahawks.

Gabe Watson is a RFA...tendered as a 2nd round pick. He is the NT we need!
