Seahawks Close to Signing Raiders TE Zach Miller

Another major acquisition is on the horizon for the rising (and young) Seahawks as sources say all indications are that Seattle will sign Raiders tight end Zach Miller to a contract today.

That would give them arguably their fourth top available free agent at their respective position; having already signed receiver Sidney Rice, guard Robert Gallery, and defensive tackle Brandon Mebane.

It remains unseen if his arrival would spell (or eventually spell) the end of John Carlsons time in Seattle or whether he would be amenable to accepting a permanent backup role.

Regardless, Zach Miller would be an upgrade to the position and give Seattle (at least for 2011) arguably the best 1-2 punch at the position in the league.

(Update)

“The Professor” John Clayton has tweeted a series of well, tweets, regarding the Zach Miller situation:

WIsh I had more info on Zach Miller, but Miller had dinner with Seattle officials. The Raiders will have to show him the money.

Going to rest for a couple of hours. We’ll see how Zach Miller enjoyed the dinner and if the Raiders can buy him off for dessert.
