Seahawk Quick Salary Cap Fixes?

by: Chris Sullivan

The Great Sandosky broke down the Seahawks' cap space over at the NFC West Blog and found what we all sort of already knew: there are no quick fixes. Unlike the Rams, who can (and should) cut Holt and Pace to free up some $15 million in cap room, the Hawks have no easy cuts to free up space--cutting Kerney, for example, would actually remove cap room. Julian Peterson appears somewhat vulnerable, as cutting him would free up $4.2 million, but cutting either Branch or Russell saves the Hawks only about $1 million apiece. The most advantageous move, cap-wise, would be to cut Hasselbeck, but there should be no chance of that happening.

As always, we'll just have to see what Mr. Ruskell has up his sleeve this year. ~END~
