The Seattle Seahawks offseason ends with training camp on July 26th. But a lot of the offseason news has been about receiver DK Metcalf.
This makes sense as Seattle traded away the old face of the franchise, Russell Wilson, so now that leaves players like Tyler Lockett and Metcalf up for the spot. Both seem like decent dudes but one has a contract up sooner than later.
Metcalf is a bit more outspoken and in tune with social media than Lockett. Not that there’s anything wrong with that either way.
Seahawks news: DK Metcalf works out with Geno Smith
Metcalf and Smith
Nothing wrong with Metcalf taking some throws from a Seahawks quarterback. Based on this video, the odd thing is that Metcalf is choosing Smith to work with recently this offseason and not Drew Lock. Lock is in a battle with Smith to be the starter in 2022.
Now, this may not be entirely true. Maybe any workouts Lock and Metcalf have done simply haven’t been filmed. But Metcalf has played with Smith for the last two seasons so there is most likely a connection already formed that Metcalf and Lock don’t have. Yet.
Of course, Metcalf is very unlikely to come out and say he favors one quarterback over another and he probably doesn’t. But this is July so it’s a good time to start spreading rumors that Metcalf is a Smith fan and not a Lock one.
ESPN says the Seahawks offense is better at most spots but worse overall
This is what happens when a team trades a quarterback like Russell Wilson. The Seahawks might be in good shape at all other units on the offense but their quarterback situation is iffy and that’s being generous. Per the greatness that is Brady Henderson at ESPN, the Seahawks are worse at QB but better in 2022 compared to 2021 at running back, tight end and offensive line.
Does this mean more wins in 2022? No. Heck, no. Many sites have Seattle winning 6 or fewer games. Let’s hope Drew Lock ends up being the starter (12s know what to expect from Geno Smith) and he is every bit as good as Pete Carroll hopes.
