With the Vikes one of the three teams on the verge of having the top free agent receiver. It was not meant to be I guess. T. J. Houshmandzadeh has agreed to be a Seattle Seahawk for the next 5 years and will be getting paid over $40 million with $15 being guaranteed. Considering that he lives in California the Seahawks are a team that is close to home.
He spent most Saturday and Sunday getting catered to by the Vikings. Houshmandzadeh was flown to Minnesota on a private jet owned by Vikings owner Zygi Wilf. He then was taken to Manny’s Steakhouse and dined with Vikings coaches and executives. Houshmandzadeh spent five-plus hours at Winter Park on Sunday and at one point team officials seemed confident they would get him.
It would have been nice to late TJ, but Vikes did not have luck on their side this time.
