    "The league has given the Seahawks a two-week roster exemption for Branch to learn Holmgren's intricate offense."

    I can't remember ever hearing of this being done before. Is it normal, or are the Hawks getting a gift from the league?

    I'm not sure if I've seen it before either but how often do we see players get traded off of reserve lists during the season?

    I love this quote from the last mistake they made:

    "Oh, man, I love it," said Burleson, signed in April to a $49 million, seven-year contract as a free agent. "

    One of them never sees 2008 in a Seahawks uniform without a major restructure.

    Let the Seahawks hold him out as long as they want, it just helps their chances of losing a game or two in the meantime.

    Burleson's contract only looks big because of a poison pill. It's actually around 4 years $14 million.

    I wonder what Branch's poison pill looks like?
