The Seahawks have one of the most in-depth teams in the league and have been fortunate enough to have second-stringers that could start on other teams in the league.

Some roster moves were semi-surprising — for one thing, the run-heavy Seahawks offense elected to keep seven wide receivers and only one true fullback.

That seemed a little contradictory to me, but as usual, I trust Pete Carroll, John Schneider and the rest of the Seahawks front office with those decisions.

Heck, whatever they did last year seemed to work out just fine.
