Seahawks to host tight end Visanthe Shiancoe
Playing catchup on Seattle Seahawks news here as I was out to dinner with family, who I must say I love for putting up with my "blogging fever" during NFL Free Agency.
I had to introduce myself to my kids again tonight.
Ok onto the news...
A short while ago the NFL Network reporter Steve Wyche broke the news that the Seahawks will host tight end Visanthe Shiancoe for a free agent visit in the next few days.
Now like Steve Hutchinson who is also in town (released this week by the Vikings in a cost cutting move) Shiancoe knows Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell from their time together with Minnesota.
Today we learned also that the Vikings signed ex-Seahawks Tight end John Carlson who was injured all last year to a five-year deal worth $25 million, so one would think Shiancoe won't be going back to Minnesota.
If we see Shiancoe land in Seattle he would likely back up Zach Miller, and bump Cameron Morrah and Anthony McCoy down the depth chart.
Stay tuned to NWSB folks. More news coming by the minute.

I have a feeling Seattle will get him just to spite Minnesota. Like when they got Hutch so we signed Burleson to an absolutely ridiculous contract.
I like Shiancoe a lot, actually, but want to see Cameron Morrah get a chance to shine. McCoy should've been cut midseason last year. Rubber hands aren't too appealing on TEs
