4. Re-sign J.R. Sweezy and D.J. Fluker or get help at offensive guard
Both Sweezy and Fluker were OK in 2018. Fluker may be more important to re-sign for 2019 as he brings a sense of brutality that Sweezy doesn’t. Still, Seattle’s line was better than it has been in several years. Maybe this was because Seattle hired Mike Solari prior to the 2018 season. Or that Sweezy and Fluker were just good run blockers.
The important thing is that other than guard the Seahawks offensive line is set for next year. Duane Brown will be the left tackle, Justin Britt will be the center and Germain Ifedi will be the right tackle. Offensive lines are built through talent and cohesion. Seattle needs to work on the cohesion bit by re-signing both Fluker and Sweezy or finding better replacements who can plug in quickly.
3. Get a young kicker who will be with the Seahawks for several years
Enough with the one year rentals, please, Seattle. In 2017, Seattle signed Blair Walsh to be the kicker and he cost the team a chance at the postseason. In 2018, the Seahawks signed Sebastian Janikowski to be their kicker. He was fine until he physically started to break down by the end of the year.
In retrospect, Seattle should never have let Jason Myers go. But kicking is a weird thing and difficult to predict. Seattle needs to somehow acquire a youngish kicker who will be productive and worth keeping in Seattle for many years. (As a side note, I have just pulled a genie out of a bottle.)
