Former Seahawks K Stephen Hauschka was asked about Seattle’s decision to move on from him and instead bring in Blair Walsh as his replacement.
“I thought it was interesting that direction that they would go in,” Hauschka said, via the Buffalo News. “But I’m not really concerned about that anymore because my job’s just to go out there and kick and that really doesn’t have anything to do with me now. But, yeah, it was definitely an interesting move.”
The Seahawks elected to take the cap savings by parting ways with Hauschka and signing Walsh to a lower salary.
“I just think that at the end of the day, football is a business and teams are going to do what they need to do to get victories,” Hauschka said. “And if that means maybe saving a little money on that position, then so be it.”
