Wide receiver D.J. Hackett remains on the free-agent market, but perhaps not for too much longer. He has a visit scheduled with Washington on Wednesday where he'll see a couple familiar faces. Former Seahawks quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn is Washington's head coach and Stump Mitchell, Seattle's running backs coach last season, is the offensive coordinator.

I like Hackett, to bad he has had some bad luck. I will never forget the snow game in the 2006 season where he mad an amazing acrobatic catch right in front of us in Section 121 by the hawks tunnel. He has size, talent and knowledge. If we can sign him for a good deal I say dont let him go. but if he holds out on us,its buh bye. Too many young talents abelow him, I liked the way Courtney Taylor and Ben Obomanu looked in a few attempts last year.

I might cry. I don't think letting him go is wise. Nate is not a #1. Branch won't be back until October... won't be healthy until who knows when. Obomanu can't run a route and Taylor might be solid back-up but given the health or lack there of for our WR's in the past it's not likely that he won't have to be a major contributor.
Get Trufant signed and spend the money on Hackett.

I may be wrong here, because I only follow redskins football so much, but isn't Sherman Smith the OC, and Stump Mitchell the Asst. Head Coach/Running backs coach?

Hacket is potentially the best reciever the Seahawks have, or had. If he hadn't been injured last year he would have had a huge season. He's big and strong and has great hands. He's a clutch player who will make many big catches for someone Losing him will come back to haunt the Seahawks.

I don't think Branch is the answer for the hawks either, his out with a bum ankle comes back..first game blows out his own knee making a cut...what's that?

I don't want to see the Hawks overrpay to keep Hackett, but would hate to see him leave without trying to resign him.
That being said, we have some other nice receivers already in the fold.

Of all their moves this year the Seahawks will regret letting him go the most.

I think if Hackett sign with the redskins it won't be a big deal because we got Ben Obomanu and that Taylor dude so i think we will be all right without Hackett but he makes alot of nice catches because of his basketball abilitys

I dont like the idea of the Seahawks letting Hackett go. He has been an asset to Seattle and has gotten better and better every year. Last year he made a lot of amazing catches. Please oh please seattle sign him!!
