May and June are the slower months for the NFL if that is such a thing. Still, there seem to be lots of noteworthy things happening. Such as what former Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson thinks of Doug Baldwin. Plus, one pundit thinks the Seahawks can win the Super Bowl this coming season.
Before I get into those two items, let's take a quick break and check on some important upcoming dates for Seattle. Next week, the team will hold mostly voluntary organized team activities (OTAs) on May 22, and May 22nd through 24th. The following week, Seattle will hold even more.
The final mandatory OTAs before training camp begins in July will occur from June 6th through the 8th. Don't expect any veteran holdouts for this camp. However, Jamal Adams and Jordyn Brooks might miss the workouts due to injuries.
Seahawks news for Saturday: Seahawks 2023 Super Bowl champs?
On Good Morning Football, the talking heads discussed which veteran players might have a chance in 2023 at getting their first Super Bowl ring. Peter Schrager thinks that could be Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith. And Schrager made good points as to why.
Schrager says not only was Smith good in 2022 and Smith appears to be a savvy veteran, but a good Seattle roster got even better this offseason. Smith will have more weapons around him with the additions of receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba and running back Zach Charbonnet, but Seattle's defense should be better, too. If the defense can be very good, there might be no stopping Smith and Seattle.
Russell Wilson agrees Angry Doug is underrated
Earlier this week, the NFL's Twitter handle tweeted out a simple question: Is Doug Baldwin the most underrated receiver ever? Of course, there's no real answer to that question because the answer would be difficult to quantify. But we as 12s believe the answer should be Doug Baldwin, a once-undrafted player who became one of the Seahawks most productive receivers in franchise history.
As it turns out, Russell Wilson would agree with us. Of course, Wilson is likely biased too because for much of his time in Seattle, Wilson had Baldwin to target and sometimes save him. Plus, if not for Baldwin's leadership of Wilson, maybe Wilson doesn't become the best quarterback in Seattle franchise history. So respect was due, and Wilson gave it.
