\ “This will all be up to him,” Zorn said of Hackett, who declined comment. “We’re not going to risk it all to try to pay him. The financial package has to work. But if we have a chance to get him, we’d like to have him. He’s got two other teams plus Seattle that wants to match [his contract offers].”\

\ “I tried to instigate this a little bit,” said Zorn, a Seahawks assistant during Hackett’s four seasons in Seattle. “Nobody was bringing him anywhere. I said, ‘Let’s try to get him out here.’ We brought him out here and now [it’s like] ‘Oh, they’re interested? Let’s see if we’re interested.’ “\

\ “When you run slants and things like that, you like to be big enough to where you can take a pounding,” Zorn said. “[When] you’re running inside on curl routes and crossing routes, you like to have a bigger target. And in the red zone when we’re going for the end zone, you like to have a target that you can throw to. D.J. fits that bill.”\

\ “We’ve got a chance [to sign Hackett], but it’s really a one in four chance right now,” Zorn said.\ \ \ Update (4:45 p.m.): We’ve got David Elfin’s full story up on our front page
