Schneider Totals his BMW

It's true. Big Mike Williams (BMW) was cut today by the Seahawks. I didn't think that he was likely to make the final roster, but I did think he would get the chance to prove himself in camp.

It is clear that Pete and John want young, fast players. BMW is a possession receiver who got little separation and used his height and width to make catches. The addition of Kellen Winslow hurt BMW's chances as he is a similar type of player (at a different position).

The Hawks need a speedy receiver across from Rice this year. Tate, Butler, Lockette and Durham should all be given chances to win the job. I omit Obomanu from the list as he is a known quantity and while he adds depth and can play special teams, he isn't a game changer by any means.

After BMW's release, there are still 12 receivers on the roster with 5 or 6 spots available in total. Assuming Rice, Baldwin and Tate are locks, that leaves 2 to 3 spots for 9 guys. It will be one of the more interesting positions to watch this August.
