Seattle Seahawks Aiming for the Future in the Big Picture?


Published: May 4, 2009


... Truthfully it’s a little bit of both. This offseason, if you examine who the Seahawks have signed, traded for, or drafted you could clearly see that they are trying to win now but also build towards the future.


The Seahawks had needs at wide receiver, safety, running back, cornerback, depth on the offensive line, and a future quarterback. Through free agency, the Seahawks filled two of those needs. They signed wide receiver T.J Houshmandzadeh to a five-year, $40 million contract.


The signing of T.J. falls into the category of winning now because he gives the Seahawks a true No. 1 wide receiver, but at the same time it falls into the category of building to the future. Housh will be the Seahawks' No. 1 wide receiver for five year, until they draft the next Andre Johnson, which could be A.J Green from Georgia—that’s the future.
