Andre Gurode To Visit Seahawks On Tuesday

Free agent guard/center Andre Gurode is set to visit the Seahawks on Tuesday. Six teams called the recently released five time Cowboys pro-bowler, but Seattle is his first destination. According to John Clayton and ESPN, Gurode was cut on Monday because of a few factors, including his age (32), his steep salary ($5.5 million), the fact that he decided to have knee surgery late in the season and missed part of camp, and the fact that his backup, Phil Costa, has played well in his stead. 

The Seahawks have been decidedly bad on the offensive line this preseason and they may believe they need to bring in a veteran guard or center to bridge the gap until the young players on the line are ready. With Robert Gallery, left guard, the only veteran on the starting offensive line, assignments have been missed and the Hawks have given pressure on nearly every passing play. 

It's speculation at this point of course, but it would seem he'd be brought in to supplant Max Unger as starting center or to be a strong backup for guard/center. Time will tell.
