This is just another move that could have larger implications throughout the NFL.
Adam Schefter reports that league sources have indicated that Seattle will either trade T.J. Houshmandzadeh or cut him in the coming days. The team plans to promote former Detroit wide-receiver Mike Williams into the teams starting lineup for the upcoming season.
Seattle’s will be on the hook for all of the salary that his new team ends up not paying which makes Housh a potential bargain for the right team.
This is just the second season of Houshmandzadeh’s five-year, $40 million contract that he signed with the Seahawks. It would have been hard to have imagined that this deal was going to turn to be such a bad deal for both parties involved.
Maybe a deal for Vincent Jackson is in the works.
NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora has reported that the Seattle Seahawks have placed T.J. Houshmandzadeh on the trading block and suggests that the team will have a hard time trading him given that he is due to make $7 million guaranteed this season.
“I can’t control it,” Houshmandzadeh commented after Thursday’s game. “I’m the type of dude where it doesn’t bother me because I can’t control it, but it does bother me because nobody said anything to me, and nobody has said anything to me.”
Depending on how the Seahawks handle this situation they could have a disgruntled wide receiver on their hands.
