    This is a rumor to reality thread. Heard it from my bro who got it off NFL Network. It was expected pending his physical but I don't have the exact report yet

    I think it's atleast worth pondering by our F.O. depending on how much he wants

    No thanks. Not for what I'm sure he'll want. We have enough fragile guys. Let's draft an OT and keep our current geisers healthy!

    Exactly. If we wanted someone who was soft at the point of attack we could just resign Dayne for cheaper.

    Suddenly I am thinking a trade back might be possible. If Seattle does drop Alexander we're sitting at 18 with Stewart available and with all the top Tackles(REALLY hope one falls) off the board possibly it comes down to CB and RB. It's very possible we'll take Stewart and I think the Seahawks know that. Might be able to get them to bite on the trade.

    I've also seen Keith Rivers' name bandied about at 18 so I don't think its a lock that we'd take Stewart. But I'm all for trading back and maybe picking up a third.

    As an aside, you really don't think that Seattle is considering going into the season with Mo Morris, TJ Duckett, and Julius Jones at RB do you? Of course, that's not much worse than Ahman Green, Ron Dayne, and Darius Walker / Adimnobe Echemandu / Jameel Cook that we trotted out last year.

    He is a product of the system. He all but vanished when Hutch went to Minnisota. Overrated with a capitol O.

    They could surprise us and take Matt Forte with their pick...

    With that said, they have other needs than just RB.

    Texans | Team may show interest in Alexander
    Wed, 23 Apr 2008 21:03:44 -0700

    John Murphy, of Yahoo! Sports, reports the Houston Texans may show interest in free-agent RB Shaun Alexander (Seahawks) depending on how the 2008 NFL Draft plays out.

    Living in the Pacific Northwest I've gotten every opportunity to watch Shaun Alexander. His MVP season, he ran behind a line that could block and make holes for him. After he got hurt (and got his big paycheck) it seemed that he lost his incentive to play football. Now that he has to shop himself to another team, he could be willing to play hard once again. Don't count on it though.
