I’m going to get right to the point here: this season for the Seattle Seahawks has been an absolute mess and almost nothing has gone as planned. We all know this.
With this fact in mind, and the offseason looming on the horizon, I believe it’s time to start thinking about what the future could potentially look like for this team.
There are obviously an overwhelming amount of different directions that the team could go. This inevitably means that no matter what I or any fellow 12 thinks the front office should do, there is a 99.9% chance that it won’t happen (I know, that makes me sad as well). Regardless, it’s still fun to put on a GM hat and give our own input on some deals we think the team should make.
Pete Carroll recently stated on 710 ESPN Seattle radio that he is not at all planning to “restart this whole thing”, but with Pete’s schemes and tactics falling far behind in a changing NFL, I think I speak for many 12’s when I say that taking the team in a new direction may not be a bad idea.
Seattle Seahawks should make these trades this offseason
The way I see it, there are 2 types of trades that the Seahawks are in a position to make. There is the direction of a quick reboot, or the direction of a full rebuild. Both have their pros as well as their cons. If Jody Allen insists on keeping 70 year-old Carroll around for a little longer, these trades wont happen. But if Allen and other upper-level management miraculously decide to move on, some deals similar to these may be in our future.
So, with all of that out of the way, here are some trades I would go for if I got to be Seahawks GM this offseason.
