Busy day in Seattle

Throughout the offseason, Seattle coach Pete Carroll has made news with his seemingly endless ability – and his desire – to turn over the roster. Now, the day after the NFL required each team to cut its roster to 53, the Seahawks continue to be mighty busy. 

The biggest roster shake up involves RB Julius Jones and his release from the squad. As the Seattle Times points out, he was the team’s leading rusher last year, but toward the end of the season, he had a problem with fumbling. In the offseason, the Seahawks signed Leon Washington from the New York Jets, but there were certainly concerns with how he’d recovere from a devastating knee injury.

Turns out, Washington is fine. And now Jones is gone.

But Jones was just one of many Seattle moves today.

DB Jordan Babineaux – who, like Jones, was supposed to make more than $2 million this season – has been a solid player the past five seasons for the Seahawks, and last year, he started all 16 games in what turned out to be the best season of his career. But Lawyer Milloy beat him out for the starting SS spot, and apparently, Seattle didn’t want to pay that much for a backup safety.

Among the other Seahawks that are moving addresses: FB Owen Schmitt, who likely is making room for RB Michael Robinson, and DT Kevin Vickerson.

And one last bit of news: according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the Seahawks have replaced OL coach Alex Gibbs – who suddenly resigned Saturday – with Pat Ruel, formerly of USC.

UPDATE (7:21 p.m.):
The Seahawks also have been awarded CB Nate Ness off waivers from the Dolphins.

What a shame, I wasn't overly excited about the hiring of Pete Carroll in the first place!  I am surprised, with all the USC additions, that he didn't go after Matt.  A bunch of college coaches trying to put on their "big boy" panties and play NFL.  Jordan had the best season of his career last year... I am already looking to the, post Pete Carroll era, rebounding Seahawk days...hopefully in the very near future!

I'm happy we finally got someone with balls enough to cut the dead weight. They may not win the division this year but give them a couple of years to get their players in and we will see vast improvement.
