There now Mods, arent ya thankful I'm consolidating threads, and conserving bandwidth ? http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/sports/2002273056_hawk13.html Team eyeing ex-Raven Boulware By José Miguel Romero Seattle Times staff reporter The Seahawks are still looking to shore up their pass rush, and Peter Boulware is on their radar. Boulware, older brother of Seahawks safety Michael Boulware, is on the market after being released by the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday, and the Seahawks are believed to be one of several teams interested. Peter Boulware, 30, is expected to visit team headquarters in Kirkland. The four-time Pro Bowler and former first-round draft choice is an eight-year veteran and Baltimore's all-time sacks leader, with 67 ½. But he didn't play last season because of a knee injury suffered late in 2003 and a toe injury suffered midway through last season during practice the week in which he was to make his return. Before the injuries, Boulware had played in 111 straight regular-season games. Though he took and passed a physical in Baltimore on Wednesday and proclaimed his knee and toe to be fully healed — according to the Baltimore Sun — Boulware would have to take a physical as part of his visit with the Seahawks. An outside linebacker in the Ravens' 3-4 defense, the 6-foot-4, 255-pound Boulware could be a defensive end for the Seahawks. Seattle added Bryce Fisher at defensive end in free agency and drafted similarly sized Jeb Huckeba in the fifth round, both to help the pass rush. But Boulware would bring his Pro Bowl credentials and proven sack ability from a quality defense if signed. The Seahawks would have to create room under their salary cap to sign Boulware, who was released because he was due a high salary next season. That would likely involve releasing current players, because Boulware would probably command at least $2 million for a one-year contract. The Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns are also interested in Boulware. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
