Biggest offseason questions the Seahawks need to answer
Who will be Seattle's next head coach?
Seattle is now reportedly going through a second round of interviews with many of the coaches they spoke with the first time. The first interviews were virtual and the second round will be in-person. There is no timetable on when the Seahawks will choose their new head coach. There is also a mix of offensive coaches and defensive coaches so which direction Seattle might be leaning is difficult to read as well.
The candidates potentially to be in the top three could all be former head coaches. This includes former Tennessee Titans HC Mike Vrabel, current Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris (he was the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2009 to 2011), and current DC of the Dallas Cowboys, Dan Quinn (Quinn was the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons from 2015 to 2020). But that is just my guess.
Which roster cuts will be made?
The Seattle Seahawks could clear a ton of cap space if they release safeties Jamal Adams and Quandre Diggs, tight end Will Dissly, and defensive tackle Bryan Mone. There is literally no way of knowing what Seattle will do with these players as the new head coach will want to have some input. But currently, Seattle is 25th in terms of cap space heading into the offseason and has nothing to spend. Some players are going to have to be cut just to make more room.
Will Seattle replace Geno Smith?
There is a great likelihood that Smith will return. The Seahawks might draft a quarterback to take his place eventually but a new coach probably would love to have a veteran quarterback to begin with. Smith was also 12th in the NFL in total QBR so he isn't a bad quarterback.
