The Seahawks have a difficult off-season ahead of them. Between the limited cap space, limited draft capital, and plethora of free agents, the team is in a less than desirable situation. This is now the fourth article in this series.
As if it wasn’t tough already, Russell Wilson has taken to the media the last few days to add yet another layer of complexity to the equation.
Wilson voiced his displeasure with the number of sacks he has taken. He has also made it clear that he wants to be apart of the personnel decisions going forward. He got his man in Shane Waldron (offensive coordinator). However, he didn’t get involved until he was dissatisfied with the early candidates that the team targeted.
Finally, he has since stated he wants to be in on all roster decisions. He wants his say as Tom Brady did with the Bucc’s. They signed Antonio Brown, Leonard Fournette and traded for Rob Gronkowski. Or like Patrick Mahomes has with the Chiefs. Mahomes has some say in the draft selection process.
The Seahawks are entering a dangerous off-season.
We should have seen this coming. Wilson looked absolutely miserable at the Super Bowl. He saw what Tom Brady was able to do behind a formidable offensive line. More importantly, he saw what Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs looked like behind that abysmal offensive line. More or less, what Mahomes would look like in Wilson’s situation in Seattle.
It clearly lit a fire under Russell Wilson to drive change and force the team to reallocate resources to the trenches. So, what if Pete Carroll doesn’t agree? What if Carroll wants the Seahawks to continue his way? That is where this article is heading. Let’s walk through what a Seahawks trade could look like.
