A number of teams around the league have helped Houshmandzadeh narrow down his list.
Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress said during a news conference Sunday that his team isn't interested in the nine-year NFL veteran.
"Right now, I'd be more prone to see if we could find a younger guy or somebody that's been around in a West Coast offense," Childress said.
"I think we're going to be good with the guys we have for right now," Heckert told the Akron Beacon Journal.
Last season, Houshmandzadeh caught 79 passes for 911 yards and three touchdowns, his fewest receptions since 2005 and his fewest scores since 2002. But he still was the Seahawks' No. 1 receiver.
