More offensive linemen
Even with the addition of Gabe Jackson, the Seahawks offensive line will continue to be the subject of great scrutiny in 2021, so could they still look to add to it before the start of the season?
3. David DeCastro, having been released after 9 seasons in Pittsburgh, DeCastro will find a team that is in need at the Guard position. He got paid $7.8 million on average for his last four seasons as a Steeler and I do not see the Seahawks wanting to pay that sort of money for a 31-year-old vet when they have Damien Lewis and the newly acquired Gabe Jackson as their starting guards for 2021.
4. Russell Okung, has been getting $13 million a year and aged 33, I cannot see any reason why the Seahawks would pursue Okung when they have the superb Duane Brown at LT and have drafted a possible successor to Brown in Stone Forsythe.
5. Rick Wagner, another tackle that is on the wrong side of 30, Wagner pulled in $6.7 million for his single season as a Packer before they released him. If the Seahawks we looking for a tackle, surely they would go after Schwartz rather than Wagner, so we will not see Wagner in a Seahawks uni any time soon as far as I can see.
6. Austin Reiter, 12s continue to voice their concerns over Ethan Pocic as the starting center for the Seahawks and Reiter like Mitchell Schwartz has effectively been rejected by the Chiefs.
Reiter is a 29-year-old, proven starter for a contending team and only earned $2.1 million a year whilst with the Chiefs. I have banged on about the Seahawks acquiring Reiter before and still feel at the low cost he would incur would be a great addition in Seattle.
Teams who had a need at center have largely made their move already, so the available landing posts for Reiter as a starter in the NFL are dwindling by the day.
I really hope this happens and can see it happening, so give Reiter a 30-45% chance of being a Seahawks starter in 2021.
