Report: Jason Hatcher to visit Seattle

The Seahawks, whose defensive line depth has been thinned a little in recent days, are reportedly set to host one of the top interior defensive linemen available in free agency.

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports Cowboys defensive tackle Jason Hatcher is likely to visit Seattle this week.

Hatcher ranks No. 36 on PFT’s Free Agent Hot 100.

Hatcher (6-6, 299) had a strong season for Dallas in 2013, recording a career-best 11 sacks and making the Pro Bowl. He will be 32 in July.

The Seahawks lost disruptive defensive tackle Clinton McDonald to Tampa Bay on Tuesday. The club also parted ways with 6-foot-4, 323-pound defensive end Red Bryant, who signed with Jacksonville.

    I have a feeling this means we’ve kind of accepted the fact that we will have an extra 5 mill or so a year to spend because we will likely lose Tate

    I like Hatcher. Would be a good addition.

    In Schneider We Trust

    Beware of players who are average for a couple of seasons and then “break out” in their contract year.

    No doubt. Laughing at Tate’s pre free agency comments about not wanting to play for another team for more money. But hey, they all say that.

    He would be a nice addition but I wouldn’t go more than 2 years.

    He is a beast. Hawks always have plan. I feel that Miami heat effect where more people come to wanna play for championships like Ray Allen did for Miami.

    Watching a few Cowboys game last year Jason Hatcher was the only person on that d-line that stood out. He was making plays and generally disruptive.

    Rather than Seattle sign an older free agents I would like to see young guys like Jordan Hill, Scruggs or Williams get a shot. Our own McDaniel is still out there and he was as stout against the run as they come.

    Seattle is OP.

    sign him and watch him disappear. tate should be a much bigger priority.

    Hatcher had a very good season for Dallas last year and is actually a good fit in the Seahawks defense.

    We’re getting better

    Considering Kiffen and Carroll are long time friends, I’m sure Seattle knows whether Hatcher fits Seattle’s scheme. Sounds like a decent acquisition if the price is right. Replacing 5.5 sacks with 11 sounds like an upgrade. Tate won’t be that big of a loss with Harvin back…Finley wanting in…and the WR depth in this draft. I’d like to see Seattle hit on a couple offensive lineman in May….gotta keep Wilson in one piece, he took too many hits last year.

    The rebuilding started over 4 years ago. Today, we are just re-loading.

    Trust Schneider to work a deal and watch him EXPLODE for the Hawks!

    Scraping the bottom of the barrel I see

    SeaPeds are one year wonder

  16. ugadogs21 says: Mar 11, 2014 9:44 PM

    I like Hatcher but he will have to pick up his game to stick in Seattle.

  17. seahawks80 says: Mar 11, 2014 9:46 PM

    “One year wonder”?…that’s still one more year than Carolina

  18. mwsmith1547 says: Mar 11, 2014 9:47 PM

    U will love being a 12 Hatcher!

  19. dbatrox21 says: Mar 11, 2014 10:14 PM

    Nothing to see here…move along, now…move along

    Pantherpro “one year wonder ” is derived from having one year of success . Since you were saying this dice December your not talking superbowls . Not sure if you were in a drunken stuper or a mile high but the Seahawks were 30 seconds from
    Playing in the divisional
    Championship game in 2012-2013 .

    I’m not sure maybe you missed the previous season where Seattle cemented themselves as contenders and were picked to win the Super Bowl preseason .

    Your probably the same cat saying teams who sign big name players flop example the eagles when they signed everyone and their momma “dream team” . Or the same guy saying Russell Wilson would slump and was a fluke , or that Seattles defense was exposed after losing 2 starting cbs week 11 . Or you rejoiced in Percy harvins injury only to feel like crap when watching Seattles offense look so much more dynamic in one full game than your terrible offense did all year . Just look at the stats brotha.

    Pantherpro .. To you I say good day ! Go hawks

    Hatcher is an absolute beast and in Seattle he would finally have capable players around him so he doesn’t get triple teamed like last year.

    No worries Seahawk nation. We may have to say goodbye to some of our friends but by August we’ll be reloaded with some new friends and ready to repeat. Let the haters hate. We are the class of the league, best Owner, GM, Coach, best overall Players, Stadium, City, State, Tax Rate ($0) and by far the best fans in the league. I’d hate us too if I were them.

    Why not go for Ware also. Turn him loose on Jerry Boys when they play this year.
