I think playing CF on astroturf for all those years probably didn't help things any.
I've heard the rumors that he didn't work out a lot in Seattle, but it's hard to say if they're true or not. Talk radio and sports journalists will almost unfailingly find anything and everything they can to bag on highly paid players, whether what they say is true or not.
