Is this the Seattle Seahawks being cute? Forty-nine million for seven years–sound familiar?
I don’t know how the Seahawks structured their contract with Nate Burleson, but I have a hard time believing he’s worth that much. According to Judd Zulgad‘s Star Tribune article, $5.25 million is guaranteed. That sounds a bit pricey.
As I said before, I like Bureleson but considering our current situation at receiver, I wouldn’t be extremely upset at losing him–especially if keeping him meant overpaying–and getting a third round pick as compensation.
Zulgad reports in the same article that Sam Cowart will sign with the Houston Texans.
