There are still several impact free agents left to sign. While the Seattle Seahawks could still sign one or two, they could also make other moves right now to make 2022 better than what many 12s might currently expect from next year.
Let’s be real, we all know that since John Schneider and Pete Carroll came to Seattle in 2010, they haven’t viewed free agency as a time to spend lots of money. They have never overpaid for any player. One reason that Russell Wilson was traded is that Seahawks management wasn’t going to make Wilson an offer he couldn’t refuse in 2023.
But Schneider and Carroll have still led the franchise to its most successful decade ever so they are doing something correctly. Which is why this offseason seems so odd. The most important transitional offseason Schneider and Carroll have faced is the current one.
3 moves the Seahawks should make Monday to make next year good
When they came to the team, the Seahawks were bad. They just needed to get the team better. Now, the team has been good, they are still in charge, the team is on the precipice of not being good for several years, they make massive changes but don’t know truly what the outcome will be.
They are betting on themselves more than they would ever rely on a player, such as Russell Wilson, to get them back to where they could make a deep run in the playoffs. Do 12s trust the process? Maybe not. But Schneider and Carroll should have earned our trust a bit more.
Still, to make next season better than current expectations, the Seahawks still need to make some good moves.
