Can he be healthy enough to make through a practice day?
If that didn't get him, surely boarding an airplane or getting in a car/team bus heading to the CLINK has a high probability...
Looks like you got your wish.
1yr for 4mil.
It's a good move considering Penny won't be ready to start the year.
I think I like it. Although I think it's more about insurance in case Carson isn't ready day 1 of the season and not knowing if the injuries will have a effect on his running abilities going forward. If it was just about Penny and they were sure of Carson right out of the gate, likely they just go with Homer and Dallas for the first half dozen games IMO.
You might be right about the Carson injury. If Carson is a go week 1 it'll be a nice 1 2 punch and than add Penny in later could be a nice RB committee if healthy.
Hyde -- 1 yr deal for possibly as much as $4M? I don't know what those incentives are to get him there, but if he meets it then it's probably because we needed him to with health issues to Penny early and then someone else again late.
This is pretty much how I hoped the team would handle RB this off-season -- no early draft pick spent but bring in a relatively low priced vet. Hopefully the next bit of news is on Clowney coming back, or Griffen as a consolation.
Hope this happens and then I would say our off-season was pretty good even with the Dunbar situation up in the air.
I like it... He's one of the backs in FA that I wanted the Hawks to grab... Solid and dependable...
He'll fit in nicely here have that little chip on the shoulder run a bit harder against his old mates from San Fran.
I'm stoked about the Hyde pickup. We lost in the playoffs last year because we entered the game missing our identity; although, I liked what Lynch brought to the table he didn't provide our identity. With Hyde we've added a second 1,000 yard back that upgrades the 1-2 punch from what we had on the roster with a fail safe should Carson go down. This is a positive pickup, now can we please go land either Griffen or Clowney?
... and Josh Gordon please... RW liked him a lot so i'm sure he's lobbying Pete/John to bring him back to fulfill the "star power" request by RW...
Hope the FO makes this move. Gordon was really making some solid plays before his susp.
I believe he liked playing for the team and the team liked him as well... Rumor is that he's living in Seattle and training there as well... With Covid, travel restrictions, etc, he could sign a friendly contract w/ the Hawks...
With Hyde getting 4 million... Where does that salary come from? Who's expense is it at? Clowney? KJ Wright? RW restructure? We still need to sign a run stuffing DT...
It helps that Russ went his way on critical 3rd downs to move the chains so there's good chemistry there. I read those rumors as well so hopefully the FO can get him back when Goddell gives him the green light.
I would say Clowney but probably still have enough for Griffen. A restructure is also quite possible.
If Russ want's another Super Bowl title, which I"m sure he does, maybe he should take a bit of a pay cut so we can get Clowney back ? Russ was tweeting Clowney saying "we need you Homie" Well, you can help make that happen Russ !
Screw Hyde, the Seahawks need to sign Boobie Williams.
Just give boobie the ball...
