Morning links: Hawks all-time underrated, overrated players

NFL.com has been going team-by-team and ranking the underrated and overrated players in franchise history for each organization.

Seattle’s turn finally arrived this week, and the list turned up some interesting names.

Matt Hasselbeck, Steve Hutchinson, Joey Galloway, Leon Washington and Kam Chancellor were listed as Seattle’s underrated players.

Shawn Springs, Jerramy Stevens, Jim Zorn, Shaun Alexander and Lofa Tatupu show up on the overrated list.

For the underrated list, I would add Chris Warren, Kenny Easley, Jeff Bryant, Brandon Mebane and Fredd Young. And on the overrated list, Brian Bosworth and Aaron Curry would replace Jim Zorn and Lofa Tatupu on my list. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section.
