In 2021, the Seahawks finished their regular season with a 7-10 record. That put the team out of playoff contention for the first time in four years. The team has made it to the NFL playoffs in eight out of the last ten seasons, winning the Super Bowl in 2013. For Russel Wilson, the 2021 season had its ups and downs. He missed three games due to injury, and he's now wondering if it's time to move on. At age 33, Wilson is looking to round out his legacy, and he'll try to win it all once again. With a career passer rating of 101.8 and a solid history of throwing touchdown passes, Wilson just might get an offer that he can't pass up. Although he signed a four-year contract with the Seahawks in 2019, there are teams in the market for star players.
2017 Seahawks Season Recap
The Seattle Seahawks have been one of the NFL’s premier teams for quite a while now. In 2017 the Seahawks finished the regular season 9-7 as quarterback Russell Wilson did everything he could to will his depleted team back to the playoffs and came up just short. So what did the Seahawks do this offseason to get back there?
The truth is, the Seahawks continued to take apart their team in the offseason, which they have to do. They have made some bad cap decisions, and now it is time to pay the bill. They released cornerbacks Richard Sherman, Jeremy Lane, and DeShawn Shead. They also chose to let kicker Blair Walsh walk away as well. They also traded All-Pro defensive end Michael Bennett to the Philadephia Eagles. Late in the offseason, they also released defensive end Cliff Avril. The signings they made were ho-hum at best- swingman offensive lineman D.J. Fluker, running back Mike Davis, defensive tackle Tom Johnson, and defensive tackle Shamar Stephen.
With their cap in trouble, the Seahawks draft became a top priority. In round one, they solved their revolving door at running back with Rashaad Penny from San Diego State. In round two they added some badly needed depth to their defensive end position with Rasheem Green from USC. In round four they grabbed tight end Will Dissly from Washington. In round five they finally added looked at their depleted secondary and added safety Tre Flowers from Oklahoma State. Also in round five they got a new punter in Michael Dickson from Texas. To finish round five they added offensive line depth in Jamarco Jones from Ohio State. To finish their draft they went outside linebacker Jake Martin from Temple and quarterback Alex McGough from Florida International. They will have to rely on these players more than they would like to this year with their cap troubles. We will see what becomes of the Seahawks now. The Legion of Boom is no more, and in it’s place, is something far inferior.
