    The Seahawks are one of the main teams going after star defensive end Mario Williams, according to ESPN’s John Clayton. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft and a two-time Pro Bowler, Williams has 53 sacks in his six-year career with the Houston Texans. But the 27-year-old, who will be a free agent on March 13, missed 11 games last season due to a torn pectoral. Nevertheless, Seattle needs a pass-rusher — and Williams has a proven record of sacking and pressuring the opposing quarterback. Clayton told 710 ESPN Seattle radio on Tuesday that Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he’d consider a high-priced defensive end like Williams, who may now be out of Houston’s price range. “This is from teams in the division,â€￾ Clayton told 710 ESPN radio. “They think that Seattle is going to be one of the main teams (pursuing) Mario Williams. They really do.â€￾

    hopefully the seahawks have lots of cap room .................. i think the rule changes have only enhanced the importance of good D-linemen. if mario and his agent truly find the highest paying deal, don't be shocked if this contract is a huge 5 yr/$60 mill or 6/$80 type of thing with a $30 mill signing bonus.

    If he's after money I'd love to have Cleveland take a run at him. They really need someone across from Sheard, have the cap room and never sign top FAs. That's gonna have to change at some point, but they're more likely to keep building through the draft this year.
