Seahawks may regret shopping Houshmandzadeh

The Seahawks may come to rue this day. They could remember this as the day Jason La Confora of NFL Network reported that wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh was on the trading block. Don’t expect a trade to happen – Houshmandzadeh’s $7 million salary is too hefty. (If teams were willing to shell out that kind of dough for a wideout at this point, Vincent Jackson wouldn’t still be sitting at home.)

The problem is that Houshmandzadeh knows he’s on the trade block. I’ve never met the man, but based on the countless interviews I’ve read, heard and seen, and based on all the memories I have of Houshmandzadeh griping for the ball and pouting like a petulant child, I feel comfortable saying he’s the type of guy who will get his feelings hurt and hold a grudge. And, he’s probably the type of guy who doesn’t know how to hold a grudge quietly.

It’s a little curious the Seahawks would be so eager to dump their No. 1 wideout. Deion Branch is little more than a slot receiver.

Deon Butler has enticing raw talent, but in only his second season, he’s yet to prove anything at the pro level.

Golden Tate is the future, but that doesn’t make him prepared for a leading role in the present.

And, finally, Mike Williams has enjoyed a resurgence (or, given that the former first-round pick has never actually achieved anything in the pros, perhaps it should be “Mike Williams has enjoyed a surge”) but you don’t sacrifice a reliable veteran receiver for a second-chance player like Williams. Plus, Williams, unlike Houshmandzadeh, isn’t equipped to dominate underneath – which is critical in a West Coast offense.

Houshmandzadeh was somewhat of a disappointment last season (79 catches but only 911 yards and 3 touchdowns) but it's expected that he'll be a better fit in the new coaching staff's offense. In all likelihood, Houshmandzadeh will line up as the No. 1 target on Opening Day. He'll play with the usual chip on his shoulder,  except this time, he might not be thinking about the other team.

If PC were carrying Williams because he's one of his relationship with PC, how do you explain LeDale White and Lawrence Jackson being tossed away?

Williams admitted he didn't give his all at previous stops, and want to be productive. At least he works and is trying, unlike Housh who goes about as if it's his right to have a job with the Seahawks.

So let me get this straight. The Seattle Seahawks currently have Golden Tate, Deion Branch, Deon Butler, and Mike Williams and you do not think it is a good idea to trade Housh because he is a "reliable" veteran who can go over the middle in a west coast offernse whereas Mike Williams(known for being too big to play wr) cannot?
i think Pete Carroll has been impressed with Mike Williams that he will trade a good player like him, IF Carroll REALLY wants to get TJ out of Seattle, i would ask the Rams for a trade. Maybe a 2nd or 3rd round pick and the rookie Ginyard for TJ, the Rams need weapons on offense, however, i cant see Seattle trading him for that and i dont see the Rams getting more money on their payroll, but i think it would be a good move on both teams, my question though is, will Pete Carroll either try to trade for or sign Leinart if he gets released?

Toad, as the writer says, why would anyone want Housh's $7M/yr when you can get a young V-Jax at $10M? So, why would the Chargers trade for Housh? It takes 2 to trade. As a Chargers fan, I hope Seattle moves TJ, because that would mean the next move is to go after V-Jax. Wouldn't mind getting another "Charlie Whitehurst" gift from Seattle.

"Mike Williams(known for being too big to play wr) cannot?"

this isnt college here buddy...there was a reason mike williams hadnt done anything in the pros, hes not good enough do dominate the pros like he did in college...the only reason hes there now is because of his relationship with Daddy Pete...look how many GREAT college WR's come into the pros and dont make it...hes just another one of those players...another Charles Rodgers...ok maybe not as bad, but he isnt a good NFL WR...
