Coming into this offseason, there are a ton of questions the Seattle Seahawks have to answer. After surprising success last season, which saw them get into the playoffs, the Seahawks must keep building this team towards continued success. We are almost guaranteed that quarterback Geno Smith, who led this team to the playoffs, is coming back to the fold, but as we all know in the NFL, nothing is really guaranteed.
Aside from its quarterback, Seattle will contemplate on what they are going to do in this year’s rookie draft. They hold the 5th and 20th overall picks thanks to the Russell Wilson trade last year. Seattle is almost guaranteed to beef up their defensive core with those picks unless one of the top two projected quarterbacks in this rookie draft falls on their lap at the number 5 spot. Other than those, the Seahawks need to keep plugging their lineup with the pieces necessary for them to make a longer playoff run next season.
There are positional needs that Seattle must address this offseason to make some improvements. With those improvements comes the tough part. That is saying goodbye to their own players. If Seattle feels that replacing their current rostered players with new incoming players, we all know that general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll will not shy from pulling that proverbial trigger.
Three Seahawks that may not return next year
The Seahawks can opt not to re-sign some of their own free agents, or trade a player to make room for more improvement. But whatever this team decides to do this offseason, will be something to watch. With everything that is stated, here are the players who played their last game for the Seahawks.
