Seahawks to See Boulware on Thursday

From Mike Sando at The News Tribune:

Free-agent pass rusher Peter Boulware visited the Seattle Seahawks more than a month ago.

This week, the Seahawks will come to him.

The team plans to watch Boulware work out Thursday. The session is designed to allay injury concerns that have left the former Pro Bowl linebacker unemployed since May.

Boulware is set to work out in Tallahassee, Fla., where he attended Florida State University. The Seahawks plan to attend, although president Tim Ruskell was not expected to make the trip.

Boulware has not played since suffering a knee injury during a Dec. 21, 2003 game between his Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns. A toe injury has also slowed him.

Players regularly return from serious knee operations, but Boulware faces a more difficult comeback than most. The “microfracture” procedure he underwent in January 2004 can require a year or 18 months of recovery time, with no guarantees.
