Vikings, Jets, Chargers interested in picking up Seahawks WR Houshmandzadeh

The Seahawks want to dump their big free agent pick up from a season ago, wide out wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, since he’s not worth the $7 mil he’s due to make this season.

There’s quite a few teams that could be in the mix for T.J., and Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports the Vikings, Jets, Chargers, and Cardinals have all made offers to acquire the wide receiver.

The Seahawks are looking to deal the 32-year old wide receiver, but his guaranteed base salary is not making that easy. The Seahawks have informed Houshmandzadeh that if they cannot trade him, they will release him.

Houshmanzadeh signed a five-year, $40 million contract with the Seahawks last March. That deal included $15 million in guaranteed money, mostly in the form of base salaries. In his first season with the Seahawks, Houshmandzadeh caught 79 passes for 911 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Former Lions first-round pick Mike Williams is expected to start opposite Deion Branch when the Seahawks open the 2010 regular season against the 49ers on September 12th.
