Hawthorne Signs With Saints
Lost amid the excitement over their new uniforms was the news that the Seattle Seahawks leading tackler of the last three seasons, free-agent linebacker David Hawthorne, signed with the New Orleans Saints yesterday.
The ‘Hawks had tried to sign Hawthorne before the free agency period began March 13th, and again after he’d visited the Saints. Despite his agent’s claim that David wanted to remain a Seahawk, the two sides were unable to come to an agreement and he’s signed a 5 year deal with New Orleans. More from the Seahawks.
