Seahawks LB Bruce Irvin: 'I would love to be in Seattle'
Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin, who in May said that he was going to play for the Falcons after his contract runs out, told NFL.com during a football camp Saturday that he "would love to be in Seattle."
The Seahawks did not pick up Irwin's option, preferring to wait until after the upcoming season to discuss a new deal, which did not sit well with the linebacker. However, he appeared to soften his stance when asked about his football future.
"I have one year left. I would love to be in Seattle. That was the team that gave me a chance when nobody else did," Irvin said. "A lot of people told me I wasn't a first-round pick, but Pete (Carroll) and (general manager) John Schneider took a chance on me, so like I said I would love to be there, but I'm just going to go out here, I've been working my butt off, I'm going to go out here and have the biggest year of my career next year."
It behooves Irwin to play at a high level, since he would likely command a big payday on the open market as a free agent.
