Seahawks kicking the tires on some veteran defenders

The Seahawks spent much of the offseason getting rid of veterans on defense, but now they’re looking to bring some in.

Seattle has scheduled visits with former Titans linebacker Erik Walden, former Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, former Bears outside linebacker Lamarr Houston and former Cowboys defensive end Damontre Moore, according to ESPN and NFL Network.

The 32-year-old Walden played in all 16 games, with two starts, for the Titans last year. He has previously played for the Colts, Packers, Dolphins and Chiefs.

The 32-year-old Rodgers-Cromartie played in 15 games for the Giants last year, with five starts. He has also played for the Broncos, Eagles and Cardinals.

The 31-year-old Houston played in five games for the Texans and five games for the Bears last season. He has also played for the Raiders.

The 25-year-old Moore played in three games for the Cowboys last season. He has previously played for the Seahawks, Dolphins and Giants.

    What should be kicked in Seattle is the coaching staff, like out the door!
    **********************
    Yeah, makes a lot of sense to get rid of a coaching staff that took the team to two SB, and went to the playoffs 9 out of the last ten seasons… barely missing the playoffs last season with numerous injuries to key players…

    Not…

  2. The Seahawks may be kicking the tires on some of these re-treads, but I think they’d be better served looking behind the driver’s seat to solve their problems.

    Schneider made his reputation with a couple of good drafts five and six years ago. Since then, his moves have been suspect at best. He’s made some awful trades, giving up a lot of draft capital, and the players that he has drafted have been, shall we say, disappointing. Here we are several days before their first pre-season game, and they’re picking up players that 31 other teams have passed on. The Seahawks have a few topnotch core players, but the cupboard is otherwise barren. Could be a very long season for Seahawks’ fans.

  3. Probably a good idea, this team’s roster is subpar and they are going to need some more talent.

    It’s almost like you have no clue that they just replaced their offensive coordinator, their defensive coordinator and all the other coaches underneath Pete Carroll.

    Are you talking about Pete Carroll? He has been magic for Seattle. Seattle is so relevant in the NFL it’s not even funny.

    Then there is Miami…

    It’s really been longer than that at this point. Bit the pojnt is, there are two words that explain why the drafting was great then as suspect since: Scott McCloughan

    Cowboy fans are circling like vultures. They want Earl, but they want him for a snickers bar.

    Nonsense, you can have an entire bag of Snickers bars (fun size) and Chaz Green, shipped separately to keep the bag of Snickers intact.

  7. Scott Mcloughan was a drunk. The only guy he found was KJ Wright. Earl Thomas, Walter Thurmond, Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman, Doug Baldwin, Byron Maxwell, Bruce Irvin Beast and Brandon Browner were all Carroll’s picks. Russell Wilson, Kearse, Bennett, Avril, Tyler Lockett and Frank Clark are Schneider’s.

    Amazing how an 11-5/12-4 team that only went 9-7 because of their kicker is some sort of disaster rebuild to 49ers fans who’s team has won 8 games in 2 years.

    Enjoy living in the past Seahawkboy, as that’s all you’ll have once this season starts.
    Oh, one more thing — should’ve run the ball on that goal line play against the Pats.

  9. For hitting so well on the draft 6 or so years ago, Schneider sure has whiffed the last 3-4 years; otherwise they wouldn’t need to look at retreads. And it’s weird they are waiting till now.

  10. Wilson will have to cut down on his first half snoozefests and come out hitting his receivers and not overthrowing them by 10 yards til the 3rd quarter. A simple fix for Schotty.

  11. Legion of Gloom.

    Oh how the mighty have fallen. Seagulls trolling the scrap heap looking for any washed up has been never was that will fit into a uniform.

    Less kicking tires and more kicking the coach to the curb would do the SheHawks more good in the long term.

    5-11, if theyre lucky.

    It’s amazing how “genius” GMs Trent Balke and John Schneider suddenly became inept when they could no longer ride Scott McCloughan’s coattails.

    THIS x 1000!!!

    Hey just be thankful you don’t have a beta-male micromanaging owner like Jed York.

    How about “kick the tires” on trading Earl Thomas to the Cowboys. C’mon Seattle the Cowboys want see him with a his helmet
    ++++
    Seattle doesn’t have to trade him. If Dallas wants him, then they need to pony up a viable trade offer.

  14. Penny-pinching Mode continues to scrape the bottom of the barrel for players. They will look at undrafted college players and journeymen who are near the end of their careers.

  15. This team is going to be better than people think. They have a good mix of young talent and veterans. I don’t see many teams with a top 3 qb miss the playoffs often, but we will see. DRC and Walden would be quality additions.

  16. Looks like the Hawks are so confident in their pass rush after all bringing all these scrub retreads in to kick the tires on….. Man that roster is pathetic. With Thomas on his way out SEA has 3 elite players, Wilson, Wagner and Baldwin who’s borderline elite. That’s it.

    Ya, SEA’s drafted so well they’re bringing a bunch of retreads off the scrap heap to build a pass rush with, or try to atleast. Lets be real here, SEA has drafted well in years, like 5-6 years now. Its the major reason why that roster is dog SH*T!!!! Outside of Wilson , Wagner, and Baldwin SEA has no other elite players with Thomas on his way out of there.
