Bruce Irvin says he would love to stay in Seattle due to the team believing in him

bruceirvin-300x222Seattle Seahawks LB Bruce Irvin created a stir last month when he said that he is going to be in Atlanta next season. Those comments came after the Seahawks declined to pickup 2016 option for Irvin. Head coach Pete Carroll claims that Irvin never said that, but many believed he did. With one year left on his current contract, it seems like Irvin has had a change of heart. Irvin says he would love to stay in Seattle due to the team believing in him.

 

“I have one year left. I would love to be in Seattle. That was the team that gave me a chance when nobody else did,” Irvin told NFL Media’s Tony Garcia in an interview that will air next week on NFL Total Access. “A lot of people told me I wasn’t a first-round pick, but Pete (Carroll) and (general manager) John (Schneider) took a chance on me, so like I said I would love to be there, but I’m just going to go out here, I’ve been working my butt off, I’m going to go out here and have the biggest year of my career next year.”

 

I’m not surprised that Irvin changed his tune, because you never want to cancel out playing for any team at this point. If Irvin has the season he says he is expecting to have, the Seahawks won’t be able to keep him any way.
