Default T.J. Houshmanzadeh Signs With Seattle

Quote:
Free-agent receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh is expected in Seattle on Friday for a visit with the Seahawks.

Houshmandzadeh, 31, is considered one of the top wide receivers available in free agency. That is a position where the Seahawks want to deepen their roster after injuries ravaged them last season.

He caught 92 passes last season for Cincinnati, his eighth season with the Bengals after being a seventh-round choice in 2001.

Houshmandzadeh played one season at Oregon State after transferring from a junior college.

Free-agent defensive end Chris Canty of Dallas is scheduled to visit the Seahawks on Monday, according to his agent.

I will be ecstatic if we can pull this off.

That would be a good signing if they can get it done. Would certainly allow them to pick someone other than Crabtree with their pick. I've thought for a while now that they will pick a QB there.

Sanchez definitely becomes more of a possibility here if we get Housh. We're going to have to find a successor for Hasselbeck sometime and I don't think we'll be drafting this high again for awhile.

I still believe Housh ends up an Eagle. I think he wants to be an Eagle more than the Eagles want him to be an Eagle.

Housh's deal is going to make for a nice compensation pick in 2010. Best of luck to T.J. wherever he goes. He's a very solid receiver and has been a reliable player for the Bengals the past five years or so.

That being said, I'm ready to see the guy go. Andre Caldwell showed flashes right near the end of last season and the team really seems to like him. Caldwell offers more in terms of special teams ability and big-play potential with his speed.

There's no need to be optimistic bro. I know it sucks, but you gotta suck it up. Losing Housh will hurt more than losing Ocho Cinco. Andre Caldwell is a depth player and it's back to the drawing board as far as addressing WR whether that be through the draft, trade or FA.

Seriously though, Housh is a Northwest guy and that conference is a helluva lot easier.

Oh no way, Housh is 32 and a great complimentary WR, how hard is it to find a guy like him? Chad has always been the guy who demanded and constantly beat double teams, Caldwell looked very good late and for that role I think he's a perfect fit.


There is absolutely no way that offense resembles anything decent with Housh and a bunch of 2nd year guys vs Chad and a bunch of 2nd year guys, at least Chad will take some pressure off the other 2, something Housh wouldn't be able to provide.

I thought for a second he might want to go back to the Northwest but he only went to college there, he's originally from CA. Plus the only star I can think of in recent years that eagles fans bash is McNabb, we loved T.O. until he became a ****.

If I could only choose one receiver to have on my team between those two, I would much rather have Housh.

That's fine, but that doesn't mean Housh is going to go somewhere and constantly beat double teams week in and out, he's slow, he's a guy who runs great intermediate routes and can work the middle, nothing more.


It would be a disaster if he stayed in Cincy and Chad left IMHO, I really like Housh but he's at the point where he needs another good WR opposite of him to have nearly the same effect he's had.

Would be a good signing for Seattle. Hopefully they don't overpay for him.

There's no need to be optimistic bro. I know it sucks, but you gotta suck it up. Losing Housh will hurt more than losing Ocho Cinco. Andre Caldwell is a depth player and it's back to the drawing board as far as addressing WR whether that be through the draft, trade or FA.
Eh, these people who think Housh has somehow passed Chad in skill don't seem to watch Bengals games. Housh plays against #2 corners. Chad plays against #1 corners + double teams.

Losing Chad in 2010 will hurt. Losing Housh now will hurt less.

It would be a disaster if he stayed in Cincy and Chad left IMHO, I really like Housh but he's at the point where he needs another good WR opposite of him to have nearly the same effect he's had.
Exactly. Houshmanzadeh is a good receiver, but he has already reached the peak of his potential. He is a #2 slot type receiver that is adept at running routes, making those tough catches in traffic, using his toughness and willingness as a runner after the catch, and he can be a good player in the redzone working the slot. He is reliable as they come. He is a #2 though, always has been, even in his prime.

To say Chad Johnson would be a smaller loss than T.J. Houshmanzadeh is a bit off base. It's a matter of position. Andre Caldwell is our most promising young receiver and plays the slot just like T.J., he was Housh's backup a year ago along with Antonio Chatman. Johnson's backups were Chris Henry and Jerome Simpson, who are all more natural split out wide.

As for Caldwell being a backup type, he may be, but he didn't appear to be going in that direction at the end of the year. Caldwell may be a Florida Wider Receiver, but the guy is very promising. He is quicker and faster than T.J. ever was, but he also has the hands, toughness, willingness, and developed quickly as a route runner in the slot. Caldwell also is a very good Kick Returner who adds the ability to take it all the way. I admit, I was not high on Caldwell early, I was skeptical, but he has convinced me and the team seems to really believe in him.

It is easy to say it won't hurt when you know he is going to be gone but deep down inside you are crying about it.

I realize you're just taunting the Bengals posters to start crap, but honestly are you oblivious to everything that has happened in Cincinnati recently?

Anyways, the lose will hurt, obviously. No Bengals fan is going to tell you that Caldwell is better than Housh right now. But he has the potential. And honestly, both Chad and Chris Henry are better than Housh. Yes. Chris "Jail is my home away from home" Henry is better than Houshmandzadeh.

The Bengals may not be very good at many things, but they certainly know how to find receivers. That's why none of us cried about the Jerome Simpson pick and it's why none of us are crying right now.

Anyone that thinks Housch is better than Ocho Cinco is out their damn mind.
