NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on another Pete Carroll & John Schneider move this week. They signed Brady Quinn to be Russell Wilson’s backup qb for 2013. Brett asks will Quinn be the number 2 guy, an emergency quarterback, or back on the streets come September? Brett says there are several things to be excited about adding Brady to the Seahawks roster. He’s not Josh Portis for starters.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his first edition of his 7 round 2013 mock draft for the Seahawks. John Schneider and Pete Carroll love this time of year. I’m sure they’re watching film as we type this. Brandon likes guard Kyle Long as their first choice, which falls in the second round. He also likes USC WR Robert Woods and Florida CB Brandon McGee among the 10 draft choices the Seahawks currently possess.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on another Pete Carroll & John Schneider move this week. They traded Matt Flynn to the Oakland Raiders on Monday, Jay Glazer first broke this story. Matt Flynn is a quarterback who wants his chance to start in the NFL. Brett can’t say wether he would have become outspoken about his unhappiness, but can assure you that he wanted to do more than just hold a clipboard on the sidelines. Good Luck Matt.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on another free agency signing today that involved the Hawks bringing in yet another D-Lineman, this time Tony McDaniel. This move leads Brett to believe that the slim chance of Alan Branch rejoining the team has faded away. He wanted to see Branch come back to the team, and has a feeling that Alan has overestimated his value. He also fired his agent this week. Tough times.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth gives you his reasoning why your Hawks should take a run at the Honey Badger. Tyrann Mathieu has killed his draft stock due to his off-field issues and disappointing combine results. This will likely drop him to at least the second or third round, giving the Hawks the opportunity to snag him. Jordin is not saying we should reach on him, but if he is available…Pete Carroll & John Schneider are you listening?
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with the top needs, in his opinion, that the Seahawks need to address in the upcoming NFL Draft. The top needs, says Clinton, are TE, OT, OG, and OLB. He gives us two selections per each position, and where he thinks the Seahawks will select them in the draft. Also, he has a wishful thinking selection, but it is highly unlikely that this player will drop far enough in the draft for the Hawks to actually select him.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on another free agency signing today that involved the Hawks bringing in yet another DE on the young free agency period, this time Michael Bennett. The Hawks now have the best group of pass rushing DE’s on the planet. Only 4 teams last year eclipsed the number of sacks (38) that these 4 guys did last year. Watch out San Francisco, the 49ers are going to be running for their lives both on and off the field next year.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth gives you his 2013 NFL free agency recap thru 3 days for our Seahawks. Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett, Percy Harvin are all on board. DO Pete Carroll and John Schneider have anything left for an encore? All of these moves can only mean one thing: It is super bowl or bust for this Seattle team.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on free agency signing today that involved the Hawks losing DT/DE Jason Jones, and gaining LEO / DE Cliff Avril from Detroit. Avril will fit in the Seahawks system as their new Leo nicely. Over the last three seasons Cliff has amassed 29 sacks in 49 games, a rate of 0.59 sacks per game. With Chris Clemons injury, there has been a big question mark at the Leo position.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on contract details of the Percy Harvin trade and signing this week. The Seahawks still have about $14.6 million left in cap room after releasing Leon Washington. More then enough to add some more cogs says Brett. The obvious point is this. Harvin’s new six year $67 million contract gives him the extra money in the bank for a nice NEW ride.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on the breaking news of the Percy Harvin deal. Not only will this bring a top flight NFL receiver (in his prime) to the Seahawks, but also has to bring the Hawks offense up the echelons in the NFC. The biggest questions now will be, will Harvin be able to keep himself healthy this year, and who will be the odd man out in the WR corps.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his version of armchair GM. The 2013 NFL Combine took place over the weekend and Brandon got to play John Schneider. After scouting the prospects over the 4 day event, he things Tavon Austin, Vance McDonald, Dion Jordan, DeVonte Holloman and Jonathan Cooper could help the Seahawks in a big way.
