Doug Baldwin still hasn't officially signed with Seahawks

Doug Baldwin is expected to be a prime target for Russell Wilson again next season, but he still technically has until Friday to discuss his options with other teams.

As of Wednesday, Baldwin still hadn’t signed his second-round tender with the Seahawks.

The Seattle-PI reported that even if Baldwin spoke with other teams, Seattle “would retain the right to match any offer sheet he signed and receive a second-round pick as compensation for his signing elsewhere.”

Should the Seahawks worry?

Probably not. At least, not yet.

Baldwin was given the tender in early March and for the 2014 season, it’s the equivalent of a one-year, $2.187-million contract.

Last season was a great year for Baldwin, as he hauled in 50 passes for 778 yards and a career-high five touchdowns.

If he returns to Seattle next year, he is expected to be a No. 3 receiver behind Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice, but he could show in training camp that he has the ability to move up to the No. 2 spot.

    I’ve been a little hard on Doug in the past, its not that he lacks talent, commitment or work ethic (he is flush with all of those essential characteristics), my main issue has been about his seeming attitude. Don’t get me wrong, I fully understand and relate to the chip-on-your-shoulder mentality with regards to being overlooked or snubbed by people that should know you better when it comes to your life’s devotion, but Baldwin’s chip seems much bigger and more general to life itself. He seems mad at the world, all the time, and that is just off-putting. That all said, he is a valuable member of the team, and he has proven his loyalty and dedication to the team and I hope that he sticks with the team and finds a way to beat out Rice for the #2 WR this year!
