Unrestricted Free Agent Priorities
Coming off an impressive second half of the season, the Seahawks need to build on their momentum from this past season. And the best way to do that is re-signing some of their talent that played a huge part in this years second half success.
Just like last years signings of Alan Branch, Raheem Brock, and, Brandon Mebane, who were helpful to this years squad, this years unrestricted free agent list has more than a few must haves for the Seahawks to remain competitive in the ever challenging NFC West.
1. Marshawn Lynch
Lynch took his liking to Skittles right into prime time for the Hawks this season, rushing for a career high 1204 yards this season, and he added 12 touchdowns for the offense.
Beast mode became a national phenomenon, as well as the “Feed the Beast” moniker that went along with it.
If the Seahawks intend on taking the pressure off of Tavaris Jackson this next season, then re-signing Marshawn Lynch is priority #1 this off-season.
2. Red Bryant
Defense was the only constant for the Hawks this past season, and that is why two out of the five players on my list are defensive players the Seahawks need to resign to get back on top in the Division.
3. LeRoy Hill
With fan favorite Lofa Tatupu gone last season, Hill came in and made fans ask Lofa who? Hill started all 16 games this year, something huge for a team that was affected with a lot of injuries.
4. Paul McQuistan
Paul Mcquistan came in and started 10 games because of injuries in his first season with the Hawks. Playing offensive tackle, McQuistan did an excellent job of protecting Tavaris Jackson and the rest of the potent second half offense. Injury substitutes who know the offense already are a must for the Seahawks next season.
5. Michael Robinson
Michael Robinson is no Mack Strong, but he may be the next closest thing. Like Lynch, Robinson is doing his best to replace a Seahawks legend. In true Seahawk fashion, Robinson does the bulk of his work blocking for the other running backs.
Robinson did score one touchdown this season, a receiving td, and will be an alternate at this years Pro Bowl game.
Here’s to hoping coach Carroll reads my blogs, and here’s to knocking off the 49ers and regaining our superiority of the NFC West next season!
