Have you ever really loved a placekicker?
The Times' José Miguel Romero reports that the Seahawks and their franchise player of 2007, kicker Josh Brown, failed to come to terms on a multi-year deal. Brown now has to honor his one-year agreement under the franchise tag; all negotiations must now cease until the completion of the season.
You never like to see these things unsettled, of course, but there's no need to worry about this until after the season.
Seriously. No need at all.
Stop it. I mean it. Take that Smiths CD off right now.
