Seahawks Tackles on the Move: Locklear-Redskins, Willis-Dolphins

I have been incredibly busy helping a friend move so I missed on reporting Locklear to Washington yesterday. That has indeed happened, he was not expected to return to Seattle after they drafted tackle James Carpenter in the first round. A starter for the Super Bowl team and regarded as one of the leagues better pass blockers, he was incredibly solid during his time here.

Another move that was unsurprising is backup tackle Ray Willis to the Miami Dolphins. Just a couple seasons ago, Willis reportedly turned down the opportunity to start for the Washington Redskins to return to the Seahawks.

One things clear, he won’t be unseating Jake Long or Vernon Carey in Miami.

Seahawks Gab was actually slated to do interviews with both Olindo Mare and Ray Willis this off season, it’s clear why that chance never came now.

    I amc so glad Carroll has done the right thing in seattle. I was worried that Carroll might be hesistant with such a demand for winning to part ways with high priced veterans. Dont get me wrong I understand that winning is a money part of the business but floundering at 7-9 or worse wasnt getting anyones hopes up.I truely feel that was Moras problem. Hey kept a hold of the same old injured players on the roster. I understand hey a Ruskell worked in tandem on the roster. I am sorry to say that our superbowl team was at the peak of our age and talent here in seattle. The oline was aging and even that year had prominent injuries to starters. Lofa was a great catch in rd2 but has had more than enough trouble staying healthy and being a true game changer since 05. I am waiting for trufont who robbed us with his current contract to restructure or be released this year. the only player release or not brought back that was worth anything was spencer for his ability to stay healthy. I believe used as a backup for center or guard hey was worth holding onto but again thats more a knock on unger than a positive for spencer. I have the respect for matt or alexander to understand what they did for this franchise but im not lost into thinking that I would trade any superbowl appearance for sentimental holding of a player. my biggest reason for excitement is for finding a diamond in the ruff but because every season that seems to be the motto. you want a dynasty look out nfc here we come. I long for the day seattle isnt mentioned with east coast time and that the nfc west weekness is forgotten. Where are all the players going if not to the nfc west? You really think someone signed with miami to play with the jets patriots and bills? Or to the ravens to play against the steelers the colts the pats the texans in the playoffs? No they are here and seattle is poised for a long term of dominance in this era of Carroll.
