Whether the Seattle Seahawks need to rebuild or retool in 2022 is open for debate but after a bad 2021 season, at least some changes need to be made. And not just for 2022 but for the future success of the franchise.
The bottom line is that Seattle is going to have to make some very tough decisions to change the arch of the future. This could be whether to re-sign some of their own free agents or how hard to chase other teams’ free agents. Should the coaching staff come back intact as well?
I should go ahead and tell you that I do not have Russell Wilson or Jamal Adams on this list. As far as Wilson goes, this site and many others will be writing articles about what to do with the team’s most important player and the best quarterback in franchise history. There is going to be a lot of speculation about whether Wilson will be traded this offseason as there already has been dating back to at least last offseason.
Three Seahawks that Seattle should think of trading this offseason
The reason Adams isn’t going to be traded is that it is difficult to see another team taking on his future contract. Adams has been injury-prone the last two seasons with both his shoulders. And while Adams did have 2 interceptions this season, he is still nowhere near good enough in coverage. Beginning in 2023, Adams’ contract jumps to $18.110 million and only gets higher after that. Adams is basically untradeable right now.
But which good Seahawks should Seattle think of trading this offseason? Maybe these three.
