It’s one of those off-seasons that the Seahawks simply cannot afford to miss. Seattle too often prioritizes quantity over quality. Well, that’s about to change.
Seattle was put on the spot by Russell Wilson to finally start investing in proven players as opposed to gambling on low to mid-tier signings. It’s simply time to invest in proven entities.
