May be available at some point after the team took Jameis Winston with the draft’s first pick, but probably not until later in camp.  Also doesn’t appear to be a fit for the way Seattle likes to play on offense.

Keith wrote up a longer article on Manuel, but he still warrants inclusion here. Incredible physical talent who’s football IQ and commitment to the game has been questioned since the Bills spent a 1st round pick on him 2 years ago.  There have been reports recently that the Bills could cut or trade him if he has a poor camp.  I find it hard to believe they would give up on him so quickly, but even if they did I’m not sure he fits the Seahawks profile.

Reportedly demanded a trade after the Titans took Marcus Mariota with the 2nd pick last month, but has softened his stance since.  Big arm, but has the air of a wildcard personality, and didn’t play particularly well when given his chance as a rookie last year.  Doesn’t fit current Hawks offense.
