Free Agency is underway in the NFL, and the Seattle Seahawks have mostly been sitting on the sidelines. All of the top pass rushers except Clowney are no longer on the market, leaving a gapping need on the roster.
In this episode, Bill and Keith break down Seattle’s inaction and discuss what the plan might be. They also look ahead at the potential options left on the market. The Seahawks are clearly not done, but fans are starting to get anxious at the lack of overall roster improvement.
The Seattle Seahawks did manage to add to their offensive line though. They added three players that all have extensive starting experience. Notably, all three are better at pass blocking than run blocking. This is a major change from past signings, and suggests an overall shift in their offensive philosophy.
They also brought back Bruce Irvin. Irvin was a first-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2012, the same year Seattle drafted Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner. Irvin eventually left in free agency and has since played in both Atlanta and Carolina. Now he is back in a Seahawks uniform, though it is still unclear if he will be a DE or OLB this time around.
