If he goes, they might as well just donate the Shaun Alexander money to chairty, because he is not tough enough to run without a great line. Just my opinion. I also don't think we will see Seattle in the Super Bowl next year w/o Hutch. IMO e is the 2nd best guard in the game, can you guys guess who I think the best it?

The offer sheet is for seven years, at $49 million, and includes $16 million in guarantees. Once the offer sheet is executed, Seattle will have seven days to match all its principle terms, or allow Hutchinson to move to the Vikings. If the Seahawks do not match it, they will receive no draft-pick compensation.

Wow.....there goes there cap room between Alexander and this guy....IF they match

Alan Faneca :cool: .:bouncy: Yeah i agree, without Huchinson anchoring that line Shaun wont put up as good of numbers. Can you say Larry Johnson for MVP?

A big blow to the left side of the O-line if he bolts to Minny.

Overall, I think o-line players are underpaid and don't get the attention they deserve.
But 7mil a year? That's insane.

Hutchinson must be smiling ear to ear.........he's getting a huge payday regardless.

The beauty of having a team like the Steelers with not a lot of perceived super stars is that we may escape FA this year without too many defections. It looks like Seattle is going to be partially dismantled this year.

Too bad for them...

I think we have about 24 mil left in cap room. Hutch would now eat up about 13 or 15 mil. We just lost Jurevicius (to the Browns for a lower offer?) and Manuel. It sounds like we might get Lawyer Milloy back to Seattle. We really need a wideout and some DBs.

Looks like we should have put the full franchise tag on Hutch instead of the transition tag. Who knew a guard was gonna get such an offer?
