Lang visited (UPDATE: signs with Lions)
Thu Mar 09, 2017 5:18 pm
  • Per Jordan Schultz of Huffington Sports/Bleacher Report. Says he is their top FA priority.

    No idea if this guy is credible FWIW

    That said, adding Lang at RG allows for an interesting OL group pre-draft.

    Fant, Joeckel, and Odhiambo could compete for the LT spot
    Glowinski, Joeckel, and Odihambo could compete at LG
    Ifedi and Gilliam and possibly Joeckel could compete for RT

  • Lang has been reported as saying he would allow the Packers to match any offer.

  • He is expected to get $11million+ per year. After Joeckel I doubt the Hawks could do that.

  • Please add a link or this post will be moved to the NFL Forum. Otherwise there would be 50 posts in here about players from somewhere that someone had heard might be coming here.

    If it isn't linked to a post about Seattle, it isn't Seahawk related.

    People need to read the rules about posting. :34853_doh:

  • Would be interesting.

    My guess is, if he signs, then we move Ifedi to RT competition. Joeckel probably mixes it up with Fant.

  • LIke this...



    The Seahawks will host former Green Bay Packers guard T.J. Lang, one of the top free agent offensive linemen in the NFL, according to a Thursday report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Lang visited the Detroit Lions Thursday and will reportedly be in Seattle Friday, with The Huffington Post's Jordan Schultz calling Lang a "top priority" for the Seahawks.


    Strange Seahawks talk video on this page too. Who are these people?

    http://www.seattlepi.com/sports/footbal ... 990105.php


    ""“We told Green Bay all along that we’ll keep them updated on any other offers that come in, and really at that point it would just be, ‘Hey, this is what we’ve got sitting on the table, can you guys compete with it?’ Obviously we’re going to give them the first right of refusal,” Lang said. “[We will] let them know, ‘Can you come close? Can you match it? This is what we’ve got, this is what the market’s set at.’

  • This guy is a lost cause. The Pack wants him and I don't see us spending this kinda $$ on a guard when that is a stronger position than tackle. This is an exercise in futility IMO. From that article......

    " The player just ahead of him on PFF's list, Kevin Zeitler, reportedly agreed to a five-year, $60 million contract with the Cleveland Browns on Thursday that includes $31.5 million in guarantees."

  • Unless the Hawks can make a miracle & restructure a current contract to free up money, there is no way he lands here.

    On the flipside, it is nice to see them actually being somewhat active with Oline help.

    I think you still see Gilliam or Fant at LT and Joekel at RT, Lang for Glow and Ifedi RG.

  • Like it or not Fant is in and Gilliam is a big question mark. I fully expect Fant to start all season and to surprise the hell out of most fans. Gilliam, well, I think he signs elsewhere.

    Started the day at $24mil IIRC, minus $8mil for Luke which leaves $16mil.

    Sign him for $10-$12mil doesn't leave you much

    Yea, just about any combination would be better than last season. But I doubt that they move Ifedi outside unless injuries enter into the equation. Pete has been pretty firm that they want him to learn the position. Plus both Lang and Joeckel are coming off surgeries, so both of those guys have to be considered question marks, assuming that we sign Lang.

    If Joeckel shows up healthy and we sign Lang and he's healthy, we could end up with a huge upgrade in personnel over last year. But that's a big if.

    I wouldn't count Luke at 8 mil. Wait for the contract details to come out, a lot of that is probably incentive based.

  • That is coming from 97.1 The Ticket, a Detroit station. Field Gulls tweeted that info out and also said they had no confirmation that it's true.

    Lang also lives in Michigan, I believe.

  • He's a good guard but Glowinski seemed decent and Ifedi doesn't appear ready to kick out to right tackle. If we do make Lang a large offer then one of those two assumptions isn't true.

  • This smells like a leverage job by Lang and his agent.

    He's from Michigan, played college in Michigan and Detroit REALLY wants him. So if he is coming here, it's for leverage to squeeze more money out of Detroit.............OR we'd really have to wow him with an offer. Which doesn't seem likely since Pete and John love them some dumpster diving for free agents.

    I agree, we've seen this dance before, the Hawks are being used as negotiating device to lever a better offer from GB. There is no way Seattle will pay what his agent will ask.

    He would be a nice add but I'd be astonished to see him sign here.

    I would like to see if they can add Barwin. That would free up a draft pick instead of using one on OLB/SAM.

    You have to count the entire $8M when accounting for cap space. If he doesn't achieve all the incentives, you get that $$ back to use in the following years cap.

  • Maybe someone like beechum could be brought in cheap, and play rt. That's really where the help is needed. I'm ok with the interior, but that rt spot scares me. My concern with drafting an o lineman is
    A. Pcjs are tied for first in o linemen drafted since they came into the league, without very good results.

    B. I don't believe a rookie will have a positive impact on this line. If there were veteran guys around him, maybe. But not with this lack of experience.

    Not so. Incentives are divided into two categories depending on whether they are Likely To Be Earned (LTBE). LTBEs affect the cap while NLTBE do not. Without knowing the details there's no way to estimate what the actual cap hit might be.

    I think it happens more than we think. Jared Allen is the last player that comes to mind, guaranteed he got a sweeter deal with Carolina cause they thought he was close to signing here.

    It's all frustrating nonsense to us, but hard to blame an agent for playing the leverage game.
