-- Matt Hasselbeck has signed a deal for 6 years and $47M, according to John Clayton.
-- Shaun Alexander will get the franchise tag.
-- Last year's Atlanta assistant GM Tim Ruskell will be the Seahawks' new president, and has signed a five-year deal.
-- The Seahawks' GM of the past two years, Bob Ferguson, is resigning, though he will stay on as a consultant through the draft. It has been speculated that Ruskell might be the president as well as the GM.
Well, I'm feeling a lot better than I did yesterday about the Seahawks' situation. Now that they have some leadership in place, maybe they can begin to chip away at the 5 billion or so other unrestricted free agents they have.
