Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Time reports that, contrary to an earlier published report, the Seahawks have talked to the Chicago Bears about moving Rob Sims, but are not interested in trading for Bears defensive end Alex Brown.
Part of the issue could be Brown’s contract. He’s has two years left on his deal, and is due $5 million in 2010. And considering the talented defensive ends in this year’s draft, Seattle might be seeking a solution to the lack of depth along the defensive line in the draft instead of through free agency.
Neil Hayes of the Chicago Sun-Times says the Bears are taking a big risk by getting rid of the reliable Brown.
Arizona unrestricted free agent WR/special teams player Sean Morey is expected to sign with Seattle.
