Seattle & Kampman Haven’t Spoken

Tom Silverstein of the Journal Sentinel reports that the rumors of Kampman to Seattle are, at this hour, precisely that: rumors.

They are one team that definitely has an interest given the connection Kampman has with Seahawks general manager John Schneider, the Packers’ former director of player personnel. But Kampman was not on his way to Seattle and talks between his agent, Neil Cornrich, and the Seahawks have not begun.

Kampman would be a good fit for new coach Pete Carroll’s system. He’s a high energy player who could fill the “elephant” position Carroll used in his defense at USC. It’s the same position Clay Matthews played for Carroll in 2008.
