Houshmandzadeh takes his message to the air

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

T.J. Houshmandzadeh announced his decision to sign with Seattle on ESPN before the Seahawks felt comfortable confirming an agreement.

The team later scheduled a news conference for 11 a.m. PT -- I'll be heading up to Seahawks headquarters within the hour -- but Houshmandzadeh has already explained his thinking on Dan Patrick's radio show this morning.

Among the highlights:

  • Houshmandzadeh plans to undergo an MRI on an unnamed body part. He presumably passed a physical examination with the Seahawks, so this should not be cause for alarm.

  • Houshmandzadeh might have considered the Vikings more strongly if Minnesota had a better quarterback situation.

I'll have more from Seahawks headquarters after the news conference.
