Welcome: Lawyer Milloy

the soccer stadium with the bright lights

As you have probably seen reported in multiple places, the Seahawks have cut Brian Russell and signed 13-year veteran safety, and Tacoma native, Lawyer Milloy. Milloy was an unrestricted free agent and recently turned down a larger offer to play with perennial losers, the Detroit Lions.

My first question was, “Is this guy still any good?” I did some quick research and it appears he stats have not significantly declined, and he’s only missed one game in the past four seasons. He’s known as a hard hitting team leader and has made four Pro Bowls (last in 2002).

Here is some reading to get you aquainted:
