Podcast: The Hawks Playbook – Free Agency begins for the Seahawks

Episode 3 The Hawks Playbook: Bill and Keith break down the NFL combine, and then get into the first days of NFL free agency including O-Line and RB interest.

Here is Episode 3 of The Hawks Playbook podcast. This week, it is all about the NFL combine and the start of free agency. There was way more to cover than we had time for, so we kept it Seahawks-centered.

Obviously, the big news is the Luke Joeckel signing, and Seattle desperately trying to add TJ Lang. That pair of offensive linemen would give the Seahawks a much-improved line, and give their offense their best chance at being decent in 2017.

We also go all-in on Kevin King and Obi Melifonwu as the NFL Combine stars. Both look like guys who are exactly the type of athletes that the Seattle Seahawks love to draft. The only question is if they will last long enough on draft day for the Seahawks to select them.
