UPDATE (3:53 ET, 9/4/10): Unable to trade him and his $7 million guaranteed salary, the Seattle Seahawks have gone ahead and released wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

Jeff Zulgad of the Star Tribune says the 32-year-old wideout would like to play for the Vikings, but that the Vikings are not interested at this moment. You may recall, Houshmandzadeh visited the Vikings as a free agent last year.

Houshmandzadeh can be a steal for whichever team signs him. Because his contract is guaranteed, the Seahawks must pay the difference in his compensation with a new club. (Example: He's owed $7 million; if he signs somewhere for $1 million, the Seahawks must fork over the other $6 million.)

T. Houshmandzadeh
The Seahawks are prepared to cut ties with wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh. Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that if the team can’t trade the longtime Bengals receiver, they’ll simply release him. Former USC sensation/Lions first-round bust Mike Williams will fill Houshmandzadeh’s spot in the starting lineup come Week 1.

This essentially confirms what we speculated about yesterday: Houshmandzadeh is too great of a distraction in the locker room. His $7 million salary is guaranteed. If the Seahawks release him, they’ll be taking a bath. Apparently, they’re willing to do that.

Houshmandzadeh is only 32. He caught 79 balls in 2009. Whoever signs him will get him at a bargain price. You have to wonder if the Chargers would have traded for Patrick Crayton if they'd known Housh would be available. Or, would the Vikings have traded for Greg Camarillo? The Vikings, remember, had Housh in for an extravagant free agent visit last year.
