The Seahawks will face some offseason changes to their offensive line. But this could actually be a good thing and here is how Seattle can get better in front of Russell Wilson.
Russell Wilson has been about as durable as anyone could have hoped for. That being said, it’s time for the Seattle Seahawks to stop praying his health holds up and finally get him some protection upfront. With a 17-game schedule likely coming for the NFL, keeping Wilson from being hit and keeping him healthy is even more important.
There is likely to be a lot of change on the offensive line despite head coach Pete Carroll stating he wants continuity. With Germain Ifedi, George Fant, Joey Hunt, and Mike Iupati all hitting free agency there is a high likelihood the line could look much different in 2020. There is also a distinct possibility the Seahawks could release two fan favorites simply for the cap savings they would accrue from their releases.
While continuity is important, I would argue its more important to get the best players possible to protect one of the most valuable assets the Seahawks have, Russell Wilson. Over the next few slides, I’ll go through how I think Seattle should handle the offseason to ensure Wilson gets the protection he needs.
Of course, if the Seahawks offensive line gets better and Wilson plays yet another full season, there is no reason to think Seattle can’t make another deep run in the playoffs. Possibly all the way to the Super Bowl.
