Seahawks Links: 5-17

18. Kansas City Chiefs-Luke Kuechly, LB, Boston College

Kuechly is a tackling machine and just seems like he could be a Pioli player. Kuechly has a 142 and a 183 tackles the last two seasons! That’s crazy production that can not be overlooked.

Steve Hutchinson’s disputed departure from the Seattle Seahawks five years ago changed the landscape for guards across the NFL.

The contract Hutchinson commanded from the Minnesota Vikings put other top guards in position to cash much fatter paychecks.

The position has assumed the spotlight in the NFC West recently. The San Francisco 49ers used a first-round pick for a guard in the 2010 draft. The Seahawks used a 2011 third-round choice for Wisconsin guard John Moffitt. Their first-rounder, tackle James Carpenter, appealed to them in part because he can play guard as well. The Arizona Cardinals watched left guard Alan Faneca retire while wondering whether right guard Deuce Lutui would hit free agency.

The Seattle Seahawks have scheduled a news conference on Tuesday to introduce their biggest acquisition ever.

No, not a star athlete — but a state-of-the-art solar field will cover the roof of the Qwest Field Convention Center, making the Seahawks one of the most green-powered teams in professional sports
