Very true, but you also have to take into consideration the level of competition for the starting job. Earl trying to beat out Brown is not near as high an uphill battle as Peek trying to beat out Wong. For an example involving the same player in two transactions--McCree could beat out Stevens, but not Coleman. Just because a player doesn't make it to starter doesn't mean they suck or have some major deficiency either. Wong appears to be very much on Capers' good side for his smarts and versatility.

IMO, if Peek were close enough a year ago. Babin would in another uniform and wong would have been on the strong side. Maybe it is a case that Peek just needed more time than Babin or Earl before being ready, but any team that is willing to give LT to a Division II player with about 50 pro snaps would not be scared to hand a job to Peek if they think he is good enough. Think Peek's lack of starts are on Peek.

Yeah there were plenty of times where Peek would do something dumb to get us close to a penalty a few times in his rookie season and in his second year.

You also have to take into affect that not everyone can come right out of college and perform at there best level. Everyone adapts the NFL differently. Peek just needs more time and he will be just as good if not better than Babin.

ok true but i still dont think its fair to cmpare 2 people when one hasnt even played, thats all im saying. so he hasnt proved he can play on sunday's, so to compare someone who has the playing time to someone who does i just feel IMO that isnt fair. thats all

Personally, I think Peek simply needed some time to mature, I've heard that he has made a commitment to learning his assignments and to control his temper. As for Babin, I think having a year under his belt will help in his maturing, he already knows what to expect. Don't forget this will be their 3rd, and 2nd seasons, respectfully. We'll be fine. I wouldn't mind seeing Boulware sign as a backup/pass rush specialist, though.

I think the Texans might sign him considering they brought him in for a visit but I haven't heard anything about him for the last few days. I hope to hear more soon. If anyone hears or knows anything please post.

I think a 4-3 team probably signs him and makes him an end. His days as an OLB may be over.

Peter Boulware could be waiting for the June 1st cuts. I keep hearing a lot of talk from my roommate (staunch Seahawks fan), that Seattle is trying to work out a deal. Who could fault the guy for going to play with his little brother? I think he's due to visit Seattle soon. I'll search around and see what information I can find.

-- Boulware Being Patient --
Mon May 23, 2005 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN's Len Pasquarelli reports with inquiries from nearly half the franchises in the league, LB Peter Boulware, released by the Baltimore Ravens nearly two weeks ago for salary cap and injury reasons, might be the most attractive player remaining in the free agent pool. He might also be the most patient. While some of the other veterans still seeking to land an invitation to training camp have begun to panic, and anxiety levels escalate as the calendar nears June and rosters continue to fill, Boulware is exercising deliberation. Just as teams are doing background checks on him, he is taking the time to study the pedigree of some of his suitors as well. A man in demand, Boulware is in no hurry yet to decide where to continue his career. "So far, give or take, I've had calls from 14 teams, all with varying degrees of interest," agent Roosevelt Barnes said. "So it's pretty much a given that Pete will be playing in the NFL this season. But he's not in a hurry to do a deal just for the sake of doing one. Sure, he wants to get settled somewhere, get into the program, get a comfort zone with his new team and teammates. But he has to be a good fit with a team and the team with which he signs has to be a good fit for him." To date, Boulware has visited with only one team, the Houston Texans, who regard him as a pass-rush threat in their 3-4 front. There are other teams that have sought to meet with Boulware, to poke and probe him and adjudge his physical viability, but he likely will not schedule more visits until the end of this week at the earliest. Barnes apprised the interested parties that his client wants to wait until after the NFL meetings in Washington, D.C., this week, which are Tuesday and Wednesday. Once the owners have moved beyond business issues, and are prepared to focus on football again, Boulware will set up visits with those franchises he discerns have legitimate interest in him, and a plan for how to utilize the four-time Pro Bowl performer. "Pete is doing his homework right now," Barnes said, "the same way teams are doing their due diligence on him. He went to Houston, because they pushed hard for an early meeting with him, and he liked what he saw there. This won't be a world tour, but he will make some more (visits)." Two of those visits, almost certainly, will be with the Cleveland Browns and the Seattle Seahawks, since Boulware has connections with both franchises. His younger brother, SS Michael Boulware, is the starting strong safety in Seattle. New Browns GM Phil Savage was the personnel director in Baltimore and knows Boulware well.

This might be one incident in which if we still had Jamie Sharper we could get this guy. However, the class of the organization should speak for itself. I wonder what all it was that he saw and what he like about it.

Ok. I am confused on what keeping Sharper has to do with signing Boulware.

Well since Sharper would be counting $6 million against the cap if he was here, I don't think we'd have a prayer to get Boulware- Greenwood is counting only about $2 million against the cap this year, by the way.

Well, I spoke to soon first off. I wasn't considering any cap space or anything. But my point was, with keeping Sharper we have someone who Boulware played with to entice him to play for us. Seattle now has young Boulware and Sharper for Boulware to entice him to play with Seattle.

If he's happy to come on the cheap and play as part of a rotation, I'd be delighted to have him. Otherwise I wish him well in Seattle.
