The Seahawks made a bunch of moves to prepare for week one of 2021. This includes Colby Parkinson starting on IR just as he did last season. Parkinson has the same injury he had last year as well: A broken bone in the same foot. One might start wondering if Parkinson is ever going to be healthy long-term.
The bad part about this is Seattle doesn’t have a ton of tight ends on the roster and this offensive system under Shane Waldron should be great for tight ends. Parkinson’s size would be excellent in the red zone. Maybe Parkinson misses just three games or so in 2021 but based on his limited time in the NFL, this does not seem likely.
2021 NFL draftee cornerback Tre Brown is also out with an injury. He did play some in the preseason so maybe this is a precaution. Brown is unlikely to play early anyway as the Seahawks currently have a bunch of veteran corners they are trying to figure out if they can be any good, one can safely assume.
Seahawks make several moves on Tuesday
Nigel Warrior was also placed on IR but Warrior has not been in the Seahawks plans for starting at corner seemingly. Seattle has made so many changes at the position recently it is hard to tell what the plans are long-term. But Warrior might be a project that Seattle sees some potential in.
Seattle did add receiver Penny Hart and corners (of course!) John Reid and Bless Austin to the 53-man roster. It seems like maybe Seattle is going to have 46 players active week one and 43 of them might be cornerbacks. I joke, of course, but that Seattle continues to look for an answer at cornerback with just a few days before a real game is very concerning.
