Ben Leber Visits the Seahawks

Ben Leber is looking for a new home. On Monday he reportedly visited the Seattle Seahawks, who are currently in the process of building the world’s biggest collection of former Vikings. They’ve already gotten themselves a slightly frayed Sidney Rice and a somewhat stained Tarvaris Jackson. Leber himself is hardly in mint condition, but the Seahawks may still like him better than incumbent weak-side linebacker Leroy Hill, a man many thought would be released by Seattle after struggling in 2010.

Losing Leber won’t be a huge blow for the Vikings who always pulled him in nickel situations anyway, limiting his actual number of snaps during the game, but that doesn’t mean his soon-to-be-former teammates won’t miss his presence. Linebacker Chad Greenway said of Leber’s absence from camp, ”It’s very noticeable. This is my first year not having him around as a teammate and friend. It’s just weird, I guess. He’s going to move on, most likely. We’re hoping for the best for Ben. Whoever signs him is going to get a quality, quality veteran starter who’s ready to play the position.”

Sounds like Chad could use a hug.
