Draft day trades and the cap

Draft day trades are nothing new to the Seahawks. Many of you will remember the first draft of the PC/JS era was swirling with rumors galore. The two biggies of 2010 were for that oft accused though never formaly charged QB who is wearing a ring that rightfully belongs to the great Matt Hasselbeck. The idea of him wearing our colors sickened me to my very core. The only good thing about that trade that never happened would have been the oppertunity to boo him eight times a year. Honestly Inwould have rather trusted my beloved pit bull Angus to Mike Vick, then let that scum run through our tunnell. The other rumor involved the one and only Beast Mode. Neither trade developed that day and we settled for LenDale White and Charlie Whitehurst. Clipboard Jesus is back in San Diego and nobody has seen White since he was cut after the first minicamp.
Fast forward to preasant day, we got our beast and he came with the greatest run in post season history and a Lombardi. Pete Carroll would say that's "pretty cool".

Now about the cap, presently at $133million. It has been projected by NBC pft to rise as high as $160million in just two years. That opens the door for allot of possibilities. Mainly keeping the gang together. Russell Wilson's contract is a forgon conclusion at this point.

The L.O.B is an ongoing project of sorts. Last year Kam got his extension and this year we expect ET to get his and Sherm is up next year.And by all accounts we are moving on for Browner and WT3. Now back to my earlier mention of draft day trades and the cap. Enough words and build up, Darell Revis. The rumor mill if unreliable is ever active. And it says new Bucs coach Lovie Smith wants to run zone coverages inTampa. Logic says why pay $16million to a man coverage specialist when you run zone coverage. There are many questions regarding Revis. What would it take to get him? Would he fit in with our team? Are we better off without him? Would we go 19-0 and allow no TD passes? Would opposing teams be forced to adopt the wing-t when playing us?
