The As

D.J. Fuker

Fluker hasn’t been perfect, of course. But he has brought a mentality that Seattle has lacked for years. Fluker wants to maul you and he likes talking about how he mauled you after the game. The “taking Suh to water” comment after the first Seattle-Rams game this year? Beautiful.

Fluker is in his first season with Seattle and it shouldn’t be his last. What kind of money will he expect this offseason? Of that I am not sure. He is a guard and not a tackle and hasn’t been a consistently great performer in his career. Whatever he wants, Seattle should take a little off and sign him.

Cohesion and talent is what makes offensive lines good. The Seahawks need to bring back all the players on this year’s line for next year. And Fluker is a big (literally) piece of that.

Chances Seahawks bring Fluker back: Please, please, please let it be 100 percent

Frank Clark

What? You didn’t think Clark was very good against the Panthers? He wasn’t. In fact, no pass rusher for Seattle was. But Clark was needed to have a big season for the Seahawks. He was the only true pass rusher the team had after Seattle lost Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett in the offseason.

Opposing teams knew they could focus on Clark this year. Yet he still has 10 sacks in 2018. Is Clark a perfect player? No. But he is a great pass rusher. And even though teams have schemed against him, he has produced. Seattle absolutely and definitely should re-sign Clark this coming offseason.

Chances Seahawks bring Clark back: Should be 100 percent
