Schefter: Seahawks, T.J. Houshmandzadeh To Part Ways

Whether by trade or by outright release, the Seattle Seahawks and wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh appear set to part ways before the 2010 season.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter has the details.

The Seattle Seahawks will cut ties with T.J. Houshmandzadeh by trading or releasing him, according to two league sources, and it will promote former Detroit first-round draft pick Mike Williams into its starting lineup for a Sept. 12 game against San Francisco.

Good news for Williams, but this move doesn’t make Seattle better in the short-term. An offseason of perplexing moves continues for the Seahawks.

Seahawks Brass Defends Josh Wilson Trade By Pointing To Depth

Earlier we noted that questions are raining down on the Seattle Seahawks for trading cornerback Josh Wilson. The Seahawks have called a press conference to explain the move, and general manager John Schneider pointed to the team's depth at the position as the reason Wilson became expendable.

Greg Johns of SeattlePI.com quotes Schneider on Twitter.

Curtis Crabtree of KJR 950 tweeted that Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was singing the same tune as Schneider.

Crabtree also noted that Schneider said that the play of defensive backs Walter Thurmond and Marcus Trufant, in particular, contributed to the decision to trade Josh Wilson.

Schneider: "They had a strong need. It has more to do with the way Walter has stepped up and the way (Trufant) is playing." #Seahawksless than a minute ago via TweetDeck


 Everett Herald reporter John Boyle dictated the impending roster changes caused by the trade.

One footnote: Boyle also noted that Schneider made reference to Wilson's contract status and that it was a factor in the trade decision.  Wilson is set to be an unrestricted free agent after this season so this trade likely represents an attempt by the organization to get something of value in return for him before he requires a new contract (or walks).
