    Seahawks' Sean Alexander reportedly released

    From ESPN:

    OK, let's try to open up a bit on this discussion, I know talking about other teams' cast-offs gets to be redundant, so how about this scenario:

    TT had a history with the former MVP.

    We have the chance to sign him for just over 1 mil/year, let's say a 2-yr deal. He's willing to play here, cause he wants that ring, and thinks the Packers are one of his best chances at that.

    Do you do it?

    No. Let him get 3 yards a carry elsewhere.

    pack in black.. no need to justify this thread. its a legitimate question.

    I think its a great plan actually. Ryan Grant, Bjack and Wynn are very capable running backs and i feel good with them back there. but anytime you can sign a guy like Sean Alexander for that cheap then you gotta at least look into it.

    Im not the worlds biggest alexander fan... in fact never really dug him. but hes absolutely the best insurance policy i think this team needs. If Ryan holds out (not likely) or injury strikes. You and I would feel much safer if Sean Alexander is in the backfield.

    I am absolutely on board with this signing... especially at this price. Let TT handle his business.... and if the MGMT thinks we might could use him, i feel like we got the upper hand.

    Although he stunk up the last season + I think he still has something in the tank. I'm just not a big fan of bringing in aging free agents for a "wonder season" run. IF the team didn't have a number of guys with the potential to breakout in the running game this season I might consider Alexander.

    Although perhaps we sign him just to get him off the market. You know in case all our RBs get hurt in camp or pre-season? Nah - that couldn't happen... :lol:

    I really think we'll get him, just because of his history with ted thompson.

    Grant\Alexander\Bjack\Wynn or Morency

    Yeah...that's pretty badass

    Thanks but no thanks... He is a shell of his former self and is no longer a smooth, yard gaining running back...

    yep. he's busted up.

    if we're going to add a RB to the roster we'll get a healthy young stud via the draft.

    that sounded gay.

    I agree. I'm starting to think he has no girlfriend and never has.

    Pics would prove me wrong, of course.

    (man im good)

    oh, and to stay on topic, I know Shaun isn't 2005 Shaun, but a veteran to work with Grant\BJack would be nice.

    I say sign him. It fills a need.

    If Grant gets injured he is a more than capable back up and there is no loss of draft pick incurred though having to pick a back up in the draft.

    I'd be for this only if we make sure we shore up that O-Line with at least a pick on a Center and Tackle early on. Also, frankly I think Alexander will want too much dough, I'd rather draft a guy and groom them.

    alexander will end up at the texans or some unperforming team who will overpay, see Emmit Smiths last season as a Cardinal..

    I'm scared of Jared Allen. I hope our O-line is ready for a war against the vikings. Allen and the Williams twins, yuck. But, I'm holding out that Allen gets into a drunk driving accident. that would be strike 3.

    If we could get him cheap I like it. I just don't think it will happen, and has been suggested some team is going to offer him stupid money. It would be nice to bring some more leadership into the dressing room and Shaun would definitely provide that.

    The price would have to be right, close to minimum money with incentives - then yes.

    I do not think he has a lot left in the tank, but might provide a nice insurance policy and change of pace to Grant if he has recovered from his injuries.
