John Howell to become Seahawk

The Tribune reports that free agent safety John Howell is closing in on signing a deal with the Seattle Seahawks.

The Bucs would like to resign Howell but do not have the money under the salary cap to do so.

UPDATE: The general feeling on the Original Bucs message board (i.e. the St Pete Times) is that it would be best if the Bucs could resign Howell, but most people wish him well in Seattle. I agree with that sentiment, Howell is a good backup safety and special teams player but the Bucs have more depth at safety than the Seahawks. Howell will get more playing time in Seattle, in addition to more money so this is something that is going to happen.
