Wow. That's adding a lot of people quickly. I know UFAs are the next step in the process but we obviously knew exactly who we wanted and had agreements in place.

Should have included Serna in case the Ga guy isn't 100%

Hmmmm, I like the signing of Jamar Adams a lot. He's big, physical and from Michigan so you know he can play. I don't like bringing in Russo. He's garbage.

Wow, nice... referring to someone as "garbage". The guy may not be a great football player, but he worked his butt off in college and did his best in some turbulent times in UW football.

Russo is not garbage, but your post is.

Russo is very solid, because he's got great hands and is very smart. He obviously won't play WR but will return kicks, etc. which he's impressed the hawks scouts with and is why they signed him. As for you Neal, eat dirt.

I agree with Anthony, Adams could definitely make this team. Could be a free agent "steal."

Being a Husky this is hard to say by Michael Bumpus has a better shot than Russo at making the team. Both are long-shots though. Maybe taxi squad. Special teams Bumpus????

Bumpus is twice the player Russo is, its not even close.

Nearly 200 carerr receptions, 3-year starter, various Pac-10 postseason accolades, etc. He can return punts too, had 3 punt-returns for TD's during his time at WSU.

Bumpus is tailor-made to play out of the slot in the west-coast offense; he runs great short routes, can operate in traffic, catches everything within reach, etc.

Practice-squad in his first year is very realistic, but in a year or two we may have Bobby Engram's replacement on our hands.

I think Russo is going to surprise a lot of people. His skills were overshadowed by the fact that he played on some terrible Husky teams. That wasn't his fault. It's too bad he was a senior last year, another season with Locker I think would have made his stock skyrocket. He will make it in the NFL in some capacity, he just has too much heart not to, and combined with his above average hands that will do a lot for him. If he doesn't make the Seahawks I can see him sticking on the practice squad for a year and moving up to the pro roster after this season.

I like bringing in Bumpus a lot too, and if he doesn't make the team he's another guy that should be signed to the practice squad and given a chance in the future.

We think alot of DeMichael Dizer. My son and he played high school football together and are proud that you all ended up with him. He has alot of drive.
