Seahawks Release Mike Green

by: Michael Steffes

The Hawks have made a roster move, which may open the door for one of the two unsigned picks to be at camp today. They have released veteran safety Mike Green.

Also Will Herring is being placed on a non-football injury/sickness list, so we will have to wait and see what is up with Herring.

As for the safety position, my guess is that Jordan Babineaux is being penciled in as the teams back up, veteran safety. They will probably keep one of the young guys (Wallace, Adams or Johnson) as well. This will allow them to also take a long hard look at keeping Hobbs around as a backup corner. Babs and Green are interchangeable, with Babs being a bit younger. Green was scheduled to make 1.3 million this year, which is hefty pay for a backup. His status has been in jeopardy all offseason. ~END~
