Seahawks Gab 8/2 Wrap Up: Asante Samuel, Karney

Didn’t want to have to dedicate individual articles to each tidbit so here’s a quick wrap up on things not reported so far today on Seahawks Gab.

– Former defensive end Raheem Brock is visiting the New England Patriots today. After signing Jimmy Wilkerson, Ryan Sims, and Alan Branch to be part of the rotation at defensive end, it’s unlikely he returns to the Seahawks.

– Fullback Mike Karney is reportedly visiting the Seahawks. Don’t underestimate this potential signing one bit, Seattle has lacked a true blocking fullback since Mack Strong retires and Karney is one of the more bruising fullbacks in the league.

– Nate Robinson wants a tryout with the Seahawks and when Pete Carroll caught wind of his request he reportedly offered him this tryout. You can decipher what it means yourself. Robinson played cornerback as a freshman at the University of Washington and actually intercepted a pass against my Cougars during the Apple Cup.

– Twitter rumors put the Seattle Seahawks into the Asante Samuel ring. I would not count this rumor out.Seattle and Philadelphia have made multiple trades involving players and draft picks the last couple years. If they strike out on Umenyiora, I could do see Pete Carroll at least inquiring about Samuel given the need at cornerback, the $21.2 million in cap space, and the fact he has involved 17 of his draft choices in trades during his time in Seattle so far.

When you wake up tomorrow hopefully I have some good news on the Osi Umenyiora front for you all, goodnight!
