Seattle Seahawks Say Goodbye To Shaun Alexander

Jordan LeeAnalyst IApril 22, 2008

The Seattle Seahawks announced a decision that many had already seen coming as they released their former All-Pro running back Shaun Alexander today.

Alexander had played his entire career in a Seahawks uniform since the club drafted him in 2000.

But who could have predicted back in 2005, after Alexander had set the single season touchdown record and posted back-to-back 1,600 yard seasons?

After being named MVP and leading his team to the Super Bowl, Alexander has been a shadow of his former self. Plagued by injuries, Alexander has only played 23 games the past two seasons, averaging just 3.5 yards a carry.

With the additions of T.J. Duckett and Julius Jones, many had said that it was just a matter of time until the Seahawks parted ways with Alexander.

Now that it is a reality, many wonder where he will go next. Will a team take him, and at what price?
