Pete Prisco at CBS Sportsline has given his thoughts to the signing of T.J. Houshmandzadeh and what this might mean for Seattle with regard to the draft.
"Seattle signed Houshmandzadeh to a five-year, $40 million deal with $15 million in guaranteed money. That's No. 1 receiver money, and thus lies the problem. Can your No. 1 receiver be a guy who gained 9.8 yards per catch last season? I think not. Seattle paid a lot of money for a No. 2 receiver. Sorry, T.J. That's what you are. That's why I still think the Seahawks will take a close look at Texas Tech receiver Michael Crabtree with the fourth overall pick in the draft. He would be the No. 1 and Houshmandzadeh the No. 2."

It's a subject that is likely to be discussed 'ad nauseam' up until April 25th. Will the Seahawks rule out Michael Crabtree having invested so much in Houshmandzadeh? Or will the Texas Tech receiver be the perfect compliment in a new look passing offense?
