T.J. Duckett Could Really Be the Odd Man Out in the Seattle Backfield

Filed under: Seahawks, NFC West, NFL RumorsI think it was pretty widely assumed that T.J. Duckett’s only purpose as a member of the Seattle Seahawks would be handled around the goal line. Any other time, he would be squarely on the bench. Except for maybe fourth and one or such relevant situations.

Point being, he wasn’t going to play a lot. But it turns out that, via ‘Hawks Insider, he might not play at all.
I just listened to Mitch Levy’s interview of Mike Holmgren this morning, and a couple things jumped out:

1) While discussing Justin Forsett, he said that his decision at the end is either with the Seahawks or elsewhere. He essentially acknowledged that Forsett will not get through waivers if they try to place him on the practice squad. He also said he realizes that there could be a public backlash if the guy is cut.

2) Regarding T.J. Duckett, Hugh Millen was very critical, saying that he is a one-trick pony whose one trick is not that effective. Holmgren did not really defend Duckett, instead acknowledging that “the pile is pretty big” in front of him, meaning the other running backs. He said the Duckett decision also will come down to the end.
Both points kind of go hand-in-hand; if Forsett, who could end up being a deeeeep fantasy sleeper, ends up making the team (and he should, if you like to base opinions on preseason statistics) then suddenly Duckett isn’t necessarily expendable, but he’s a waste of space as a fourth running back.

My guess would actually be that Duckett doesn’t make the team; how much good can he really do in just specialized situations, particularly with the Seahawks proclivity at passing on short yardage situations. At least holding onto Forsett would make the fans happy (noted above) and give them some legit options.
