The Seahawks are in an awkward spot this year. They have very little cap space, very little draft capital, and a lot of holes on the roster.
As if that wasn’t enough, Russell Wilson is now forcing the team to invest in the offensive line ‘or else.’ Truly, this is not an easy situation to be in for the Seahawks. Bottom of the barrel in terms of overall assets to build a roster and a hard line drawn in the sand by the franchise quarterback.
I get both sides of this argument though. The team has to buy low on many players because of Wilson’s contract size. They spent big on him but the team still needs to fill out the 53 man roster.
The Seahawks need more blue-chip talent on the offensive line, Orlando Brown Jr. would bring just that.
Wilson in turn sees how well other QBs perform with top-tier offensive lines and wants that for himself. After all, he is all about legacy and finishing as an all-time top 5 quarterback. Seeing the offensive line that Tom Brady won the Super Bowl with really set this into motion.
For the Seahawks to accomplish this task, they will need to get creative. They will need to make massive moves to ensure the best player in franchise history doesn’t double down on the passive-aggressive trade request and force his way out.
It’s time for the Seahawks to make a bold move and acquire a top-tier offensive lineman. This is where the Ravens offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. enters the picture.
