On this date: Nate Burleson added as restricted free agent
2006: Wide receiver/kick returner Nate Burleson, a Seattle native, is acquired from the Vikings. As a restricted free agent, Burleson signs an offer sheet with the Seahawks that the Vikings decline to match – a move that cost the Seahawks a third-round draft choice. Burleson started 32 games in four seasons and was voted the punt returner on the Seahawks’ 35th Anniversary team.
