Seattle Seahawks: Four Veterans That May Move on by Opening Day

Balmer was versatile for Seattle, but was he effective enough to stick around in 2011?

The Seahawks currently have 25 unrestricted free agents and a bevy of holes to fill; not an ideal position in which to begin thinking about which veterans to release before opening day.

However, with Pete Carroll and John Schneider’s no-stone-unturned approach towards talent evaluation and player acquisition, anything is possible.

I want to make it clear from the start that I don’t believe the four players on this list have equal likelihood of being released by opening day; two of the players could have value via trade, or be candidates for contract re-structuring before outright release.

With free agency remaining, the roster will change a significant amount before taking the field opening week.

Where these players fit into the 2011 game plan remains to be seen, but let’s take a closer look at why they could be on the chopping block.
