With the NFL Draft behind us, we start to wade into uncharted territory. Regardless of facing a worldwide pandemic, factors have gone on comparatively unchanged as a result far. The new league year, absolutely free agency and the draft all proceeded with just minor tweaks all factors thought of.
That adjustments now. Offseason applications have been lowered to Zoom meetings, and theres no telling when teams will be capable to lastly convene at their respective facilities. Place basically, no one knows how this is going to play out at this point. The NFL plans on releasing the 2020 schedule sometime this week, but it will have a major asterisk that reads topic to modify.
Thats not to be doom and gloom, its just to say that factors are difficult to project across the board. With that, I did my ideal to cover the top rated storylines facing the Seahawks at this juncture.
Lets dive into this weeks mailbag. Thanks as normally to these who asked inquiries.
I figured it produced sense to tackle these with each other. From an installation point of view, the Seahawks really should be capable to manage all of their classroom function more than Zoom. Seattle is getting every day group meetings and position meetings. The Seahawks coaching employees will also give group-issued workouts to ideal retain players in shape.
But who knows when the Seahawks, or any other group, will get to have any on-field function. Thats unlikely to come about at all throughout the offseason plan, which leaves us only capable to cross our fingers that coaching camp is capable to commence on time in late July. The season really should be capable to commence on time as extended as thats the case, even with teams playing catch-up due to the lack of offseason function.
A delayed commence is inevitable, although, if COVID-19 has any sizeable influence on coaching camp.
I consider its totally feasible that Shaquem Griffin is capable to carve out a part for himself in Seattles rotation at edge rusher. Griffin showed lots of burst off the edge in 2019, and his speed is a issue for opposing tackles. Offered his influence on particular teams as nicely, I would guess that hes on the roster in 2020 (though I admittedly havent accomplished a complete roster projection however). Even if he doesnt get normal reps, you could do substantially worse for a backup really should a person ahead of him on the depth chart get hurt.
There will certainly be an odd man out at tight finish. Its difficult to visualize Will Dissly, Greg Olsen, Colby Parkinson, Jacob Hollister and Luke Willson all creating the roster. It would come down to Hollister and Willson as theres no possibility Seattle would reduce a 2020 fourth-round choose (Parkinson).
Try to remember that Seattle opened the season in 2019 with just two active tight ends (Dissly and Nick Vannett). That suggests its conceivable that each Hollister and Willson are reduce in August. Seattle would save additional than $three million by cutting Hollister. The one particular point that could save one particular (or each) of them would be if Dissly (Achilles) is behind schedule on his rehab and requires to commence the season on PUP.
Seattle kept six receivers in 2019. Thatll almost certainly be the quantity in 2020 as nicely, but it could be just 5 as nicely offered the depth at tight finish. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf are roster locks. Philip Dorsett really should be as nicely. That leaves John Ursua, David Moore, Freddie Swain, Stephen Sullivan and a number of other folks to fight for the final two-three spots.
My guess, from left to correct: Duane Brown — Mike Iupati — B.J. Finney — Damien Lewis — Brandon Shell.
I essentially consider left guard is the only spot up really for grabs (assuming Lewis does not entirely underwhelm in camp). Opportunity Warmack, Jordan Simmons and Phil Haynes will be the top rated competitors at left guard.
The Seahawks at present have about $21 million in cap space. Thats not adequate to land each Jadeveon Clowney and Everson Griffen, but Seattle does have techniques to make adequate space. Cutting Hollister ($three.three million), Moore ($two.1), Brandon Jackson ($two.1) and Joey Hunt ($two.1) would save the Seahawks $9.six million. That would give them about $30.9 million to devote on Clowney and Griffen, which I am guessing would be additional than adequate.

Getting grown up in Seattle and then covering the 49ers from 2015-18, I took this job with lots of familiarity with the Seahawks. The greatest eye-opener for me was watching Russell Wilson on a every day basis. He spent every single practice in camp carving up his personal defense. He was unstoppable. Every session hed make a couple of throws that would just make you laugh to your self since it was so unfair.
Wilson produced it apparent each and every day why hes one particular of the ideal in the planet.
I wouldnt be shocked to see the Seahawks sign a veteran defensive tackle. Any of the names you talked about are viable choices. I just dont consider theres a massive sense of urgency at this point. Who knows who else about the league will be reduce in the coming months as a cap casualty. There will normally be somebody on the open industry who will be capable to fill Al Woods part in 2019.
I genuinely have no thought who serves as Seattles mascot. I will leave you to ponder this query, although: Have you ever noticed Blitz and Bob Condotta in the identical area?
