Housh likes the Hawks (updated)

by: Chris Sullivan 

Sando (and Wes in the comments -- thanks Wes!) report:
Bengals receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh listed the Seahawks, Vikings, Giants and Eagles among the teams he told his agent to approach in free agency.
A lot of you have been big on Housh all offseason (and before). I haven't been. I'll be the first to admit that he could have a big impact, but I still view him as more of a stopgap measure -- imagine Marcus Pollard but a WR and very talented. 

UPDATE -- I asked Sando in the comments how he thought Housh would fit with the Hawks, his response: 
He would provide insurance at the position and ease some of the injury-related fears. His presence would provide additional flexibility for Seattle entering the draft. As for how he would fit into the Seattle offense, that's tough to say given what little we know about the offense. But he's a good receiver, so the fit would probably be fine.

Here's the video of the Housh interview where he mentions the Hawks:
