Pro Football Talk 'Loves' The Idea Of Cutting Ties With T.J. Houshmandzadeh

Gregg Rosenthal of ProFootballTalk.com co-signs Seattle’s decision to cut ties with talented (and expensive) wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, citing the need to clean house and open up minutes for younger players.

Some may think Carroll is crazy, but it doesn’t hurt to have courage with your convictions. [Mike] Williams has looked excellent all offseason long and provides a similar possession receiver skill set to Houshmandzadeh.

If Williams doesn’t work out, the team still has youngsters Deon Butler and Golden Tate behind him. It’s a new era in Seattle, and the team can’t get rid of former G.M. Tim Ruskell’s mistakes fast enough.

Rosenthal also notes that the Seahawks will be able to save a portion of Houshmandzadeh’s contract if and when he is signed by another team. So, while money may not be the major driver of this decision, it probably does play a role.
