There are a number of areas wherever the Seattle Seahawks have to have assist. Between the most important positions that have to have reinforcing are:
The O-line struggled once more in 2021. Also, each of last season’s beginning tackles, Duane Brown and Brandon Shell, are free agents.
Russell Wilson is in Denver now, and his backup the past number of seasons, Geno Smith, is a cost-free agent. That leaves Drew Lock and Jacob Eason fighting to be the quantity a person quarterback in camp. A scenario most 12s come across unacceptable.
Seattle unceremoniously dumped center linebacker and franchise mainstay Bobby Wagner. They could possibly move 2020 first round pick Jordyn Brooks inside of and find another outside linebacker, or go away him outdoors and encourage Cody Barton to setting up MLB. Neither selection is a long-time period resolve.
