The Seattle Seahawks had a tryout with a handful of kickers at the teamís Renton headquarters today, and veteran Ryan Longwell apparently came out as the winner. According to ESPNís Ed Werder, Seattle plans to sign Longwell to the teamís active roster as insurance with Seattleís starter Steven Hauschka nursing a lower calf strain.

The 15-year veteran did not play for any NFL team during the regular season. He was released by Minnesota a couple weeks after the Vikings drafted Blair Walsh in April.

Surprised it took this long. Doesn't have a big leg at all. But dude was money from anything under 50 most of the time. Can't believe Olindo Mare got signed first Shocked

^^ Longwell played it craftily though. didn't have to work during the season, didn't have to travel, be away from his family. could work on his golf game.

now he shows up for the playoff run. at the most he'll play three games and could come up with a Super Bowl ring.

Applause

I said the same thing to myself when the Dolphins signed Kaeding.

Good to see Longwell finally find a new home. I wish him the best of luck. I'm curious as to who the other kickers they tried out were. Anyone know?

Crud! Now I can't decide if I want Seattle making the Super Bowl on a Longwell FG after Cundiff misses on for the Niners in OT... or on a last second Hail Mary from Russell Wilson to Golden Tate for a TD in Lambeau.

I'm so conflicted! Mad

(For the record, either way I still want the Hawks to lose in the Super Bowl in the event of either outcome... just so I can troll SOS. Very Happy )

Seahawks have informed kicker Steven Hauschka that he'll be placed on Injured Reserve, out for rest of season (calf).

Not a bad signing for Seattle. Longwell's been a decent kicker for a few seasons in the NFL.

If he have enough leg strength left, this is a solid signing.

strength is not his top skill, accuracy is.

very weak on kickoffs.

I'm happy for him. The "Seattle Vikings" are a good team. Wink

I wonder if they'll have him do Kickoff. He was terrible last year with it.

we will probably use P Jon Ryan on kickoffs. He did it when Haush went out last week and did a pretty decent job.

oh yeah, I watched the game. Embarassed

but Ryan did seem to get a few lucky bounces for him. I don't remember him booming any into the endzone.

Still pissed that the 49ers signed Cundiff over him.
