Hall of Famer

The Seahawks invested quite a bit of draft capital to get a safety prior to last season - A 2021 1st round pick, 2021 3rd round pick and 22 first round pick. It would be comical if they could not get him signed to a long term deal or if his deal hinders the Seahawks thin roster - especially in the trenches on both sides of the ball over the next few seasons. Russell Wilson can only roll out and throw the ball downfield so many times before an injury occurs, they have a very mediocre running game as well.
ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports contract talks between Jamal Adams and the Seahawks "have been slow" and could extend into training camp.
“This is a situation that could bleed through training camp, even possibly close to Week 1," reported Fowler, who called talks "complicated." After trading two first-round picks, Seattle is committed to re-signing Adams, but the contract-year safety is "trying to reset the market." The Broncos made Justin Simmons the highest paid safety in March with a four-year extension that averages $15 million. Adams skipped Seattle's minicamp last month and is a candidate to hold out without a deal.
Ben Burr-Kirven led the Seahawks in their first preseason game with 12 tackles. Cody Barton was second with 9. K. J. Wright is an unsigned free agent so there's an opening at linebacker on Seattle. Our Lads currently has Burr-Kirven listed as the starting ROLB with Barton backing up Bobby Wagner in the middle. Though good old Plantation Pete might see both as WSTD only there's a good chance Burr-Kirven or Barton will start this season.
Yea, his plantation is in real jeopardy of falling to bottom feeder status in a tough division. The defense is already terrible so it was really only Wilson and the offense keeping the team afloat. The drop off from Wilson to Smiff is a significant one.Wilson will be out for an extended period of time - 6-8 weeks. This is the first time Wigger Pete will be without Wilson as his starting QB in almost a decade.
Here's an interesting article. 6 of the 7 QBs listed are actually white. Ideally I'd like to see either Andy Dalton or Nick Foles - one of the two could and should use this to get out of a situation in Chicago where they've been flat-out told they have no chance of starting. Blake Bortles, Nick Mullens, Gardner Minshew (who is actually given the "dat upside" compliment by the article), and Jake Luton (who was the Seahawks' 3rd string QB to start the season but was released earlier this year) are also on the list.
I can’t believe Minshew is a 3rd string QB. 5500+ yards, 37 TD’s to 11 INT’s, and 500 rushing yards in 21 starts. Also he was a 6th round pick and is only 25. That’s better than a lot of starting QB’s in the NFL right now.Doubtful that Plantation Pete trades for a QB. I feel Minshew would be a good move, he's a similar player to Russell Wilson but alas he was thrown into a bad situation in Jacksonville whereas Wilson enjoyed a strong defense and running game during his early years which helped his development. Minshew should be starting in this league - he's better than Hurts who is a modern day "Garbage Time Griffin". Foles and Dalton are also starting QBs but they are now both behind a quotaback...White replacement anyone?
