Would the Seahawks consider Dorial Green-Beckham?

Dorial Green-Beckham could be great. Or he could be a nightmare.

Imagine what Russell Wilson could do with a couple of top-end targets?

That’s a question a lot of Seahawks fans have been asking recently. I’m not sure the offense would change much. First and foremost this is a running team that wants to limit turnovers. They’re never going to field a mass-production receiver because, ideally, they won’t have to throw enough for that to happen.

And yet this is an offense that has lacked an explosive edge in the passing game this year. Wilson hasn’t taken as many shots. I’m not sure whether this is a lack of options or Wilson just being especially careful. He talked in the off-season about a slightly unrealistic completion percentage (above 70% I think). Last year they were willing to challenge the receivers 1v1 or even throw into double coverage. We haven’t seen that this year.

It’s fascinating to consider what an explosive target could do for the offense. The Seahawks have clearly battled to find that elusive superstar. They coveted Brandon Marshall, they paid big money to Sidney Rice and they traded for Percy Harvin. And here they are. Minus Golden Tate and still lacking that true #1.

The draft is likely to be Seattle’s best bet to scratch this particular itch. It’s going to be difficult to tempt big name free agents to come and play in a run-focused scheme. We’ve said this many times. Receivers love to win, but they love to win putting up crazy numbers in the process. Is Demaryius Thomas really going to swap Denver’s offense and Peyton Manning to try and become Pete Carroll’s first 1000 yard receiver in Seattle? What about Dez Bryant? Is he passing on Tony Romo and a comfortable statistical situation in Dallas?

The only way it happens is if you overpay. That’s what brought Sidney Rice to the Seahawks and to a certain extent Zach Miller. But that was a time when Seattle had a lot of free cap room. Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and others have now been paid. Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner are next. There’s likely going to be money available to make free agency work, but not in the way that’ll get a superstar to Seattle.

Having pumped so much draft stock into the receiver position recently (the Harvin trade cost three picks, plus a second rounder on Paul Richardson), it’s frustrating to think it could be an early target again. I suppose they could reignite talks with Tampa Bay over Vincent Jackson but the compensation would have to be favorable and he’d need to take a pay cut. Going after a tight end is possible too.

If they do look at the draft, we’ve already spent a lot of time talking about Kevin White and others. So what about Dorial Green-Beckham — a player we’ve not touched on much?

Here’s a quick refresher on why we haven’t spent much time on DGB. He was kicked out of Missouri last year and wound up transferring to Oklahoma. The NCAA ruled not to allow him to play in 2014. I suspect his aim was to spend one year with a contender and then turn pro. Now he has a decision to make. He’s not offered any indication on whether he’ll bolt for the NFL without playing a snap for the Sooners.

In a year where the NFL has had to deal with high profile domestic abuse cases, Green-Beckham’s departure from Mizzou had a similar theme. After multiple incidents involving Marijuana (one suspension, one arrest that was later dismissed), he reportedly forced his way into an apartment and pushed a female down some stairs. He wasn’t arrested, but it was the final straw for Gary Pinkel and the Tigers.

When the Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson controversies were dominating the headlines, I think we all considered what it meant for Green-Beckham. Would teams be less likely to take a chance in light of what’s happened this year? Who knows. Only today Frank Tarkenton said he didn’t think Rice and Peterson should be allowed back into the league. Green-Beckham has obvious talent but is he a problem waiting to happen?

The Seahawks in particular aren’t just dealing with a changing NFL that is under pressure to be tougher on domestic abuse. They’re dealing with a season heavily impacted by a problematic wide receiver. After spending so much on Harvin, are they less inclined to take a risk on a guy like DGB?

There’s absolutely no doubt at all about his talent. He’s a rare, 6-5/6-6 receiver with an ideal 225lbs frame, good speed and a fantastic ability to go up and get the ball. He’s not quite as explosive as Josh Gordon but he is a go-up-and-get-it wide-out who makes plays in the red zone. Without the off-field flags he’s likely a top-15 pick, if not top ten.

I think the Seahawks — and many other teams — would probably consider a flier in the middle rounds. Maybe even as early as the second round. But what about the first? What if you know you can fill this crucial need, that DGB is a former 5-star recruit with everything you look for (he’ll probably be a top SPARQ talent) and there are teams behind you possibly willing to take him? Do you have to consider it? Or do you let him sink like a stone and if he’s there later on or even in UDFA, you assess the situation? How do you balance out risk vs need after the Harvin mess?

Look at the video below. Watch the way he high points the ball in the end zone.

This is exactly the type of player Seattle currently lacks. Big time. Someone you can overthrow in the red zone and he’ll still make a play on the ball. If the Seahawks want to be conservative but still take shots 1v1 — they need a long, tall receiver like this. If Green-Beckham was a flawless diamond they’d have no shot to draft him. The fact he is a perceived walking disaster zone offers them an opportunity to get a player with his potential and help get him on the right track.

If he came into the league and actually had no issues off the field, he wouldn’t be the first. Any moderate NFL fan can think of a troublesome receiver in college who carried a bad reputation throughout their career and still produced. The new CBA also makes it less of a financial risk. A late first rounder doesn’t earn more than $2m until the final year of a rookie contract. A second rounder earns even less.

In the aftermath of the Harvin trade to New York, John Schneider said the Seahawks would continue to take their shots. They aren’t afraid to make bold moves as we’ve seen. If they felt they could manage DGB within the locker room, they might consider it. Of course it would take a whole lot of homework to feel comfortable about that. The last thing they need is another headache. But if it works out? They could land a fantastic talent.

We don’t know enough about the situation to make a firm projection right now. Has the move to Oklahoma acted as a wake up call? Will he declare? How are teams projecting him? He’s an interesting case though. And if you believe you can trust him — who knows? He could be the answer to Seattle’s red zone woes. Or he could be just another headache.


  1. Cysco

    If he declares, he’s my number one target. Like you said, without the cloud around him, he’s probably a top-10 player. If there’s a shot to get him at the bottom of round one I think you have to take it.

    This team has shown that they aren’t afraid to take risks on top of the draft players with potential issues. (I’m looking at you Christine Michael) The potential upside outweighs the potential downside.

    The trend the Seahawks have shown under PC/JS is that they swing for the fences in the first couple rounds, then target “system” guys with their later picks. No pick screams home run swing more than DGB.

    Unless the dude turns out to be a complete mental midget in interviews, I can’t help but think he’ll be very high up on Seattle’s board.

    • Rob Staton

      To play devils advocate though Cysco — has Bruce Irvin completely delivered on his extreme athletic potential? The Harvin trade totally flamed out. Christine Michael hasn’t even be able to usurp the #2 running back. And Paul Richardson hasn’t had an immediate impact (although we reserve judgement on that pick for now). Can they afford to risk another failure? Are the warning signs not there with DGB?

      • nolan

        The other big concern is he is missing an entire year of football… What kind of shape is he going to be in… How much will the year of development cost him.

        • rowdy

          He might be missing a year of games but he’s on a team and training, not to worried about him staying in shape.

          • Michael M.

            I’m not so worried about the missed season. Didn’t Robert Quinn sit out his last year at UNC because of suspension?

      • rowdy

        All good points and I agree with all of them but not being able to bring in wr in fa because of money and the system I think it’s the only way to get a player of his caliber. Taking a bigger risk is probably the only way they can get that wr. Parker is my favorite wr in the draft though but shouldn’t be anywhere near are pick. And I think bruce was a good pick and hope we can resign him.

      • Cysco

        There’s no doubt that the Hawk’s strategy of targeting extremely high upside players early on hasn’t proven to be overly effective, but I don’t see them changing their approach. Didn’t JS say recently about the Harvin mess that they weren’t going to stop taking chances because of one “mistake” ? (paraphrasing)

        Personally, I would have been happier had they drafted one several “solid football player types” that we discussed last year instead of Richardson. We’ve missed out on some really good players and watched some really good players move on from the Seahawks because of the FO’s approach.

        In this case though, I think the potential upside of the player combined with the position being the most glaring weak spot on the entire team means I’d not fault them for taking the swing once again.

  2. Colin

    One to keep an eye on. Seattle has to start targeting some weapons for Russ in the early rounds.

  3. dave crockett

    Having watched every game, I think DGB in the first round probably is not the move. As much as I love his talent, I’d argue that he is raw like Golden Tate–maybe more. That took a good 3 seasons. Remember, DGB didn’t walk onto the field at Mizzou and dominate from day 1. It took a bit for him to really find himself and acclimate to the level of competition.

    He was a 5-star, but went to a tiny high school in Springfield, MO where his father was the coach. You should see his HS tape. He was playing against kids who went on to play at Northwest Missouri State and Missouri State. DGB took some time to acclimate and adjust to FBS play. He couldn’t get off the line. He couldn’t beat press. He was still learning how to just play football when he got kicked off the team. The Kentucky game was kind of his coming out, but it’s not like he dominated every week. DGB is much more athletic talent than Mike Evans, for example, but is nowhere near as ready to contribute in the NFL.

    • Turp

      What round would you bite at, Dave?

      • rowdy

        I would in the second. I think pass rush should be are first pick, someone should fall in that department

        • Hay stacker509

          I agree on second round unless we’re picking @32! But I’d rather have a solid DT that can start from day 1 then DGB round 2

    • Rob Staton

      Thanks for the info.

  4. Darnell

    Britt should be able to have some insight on what kind of teammate Green-Beckham is; and Cable has a good relationship with Pinkel.

    • Matt

      I was thinking the same thing. They’ve got a guy on the team who shared a locker room with him and presumably saw at least some of him off the field.

  5. Brad

    At this point I’m curious if we could sign the infamous Brandon Coleman off the saints practice squad.

    • CC

      Not so sure – there have been opportunities to grab him and they haven’t.

  6. tony

    Harvin was an established nfl star with an attitude problem. Green would be a rookie. I think an environment like Seattle would do him well. I would definitely gamble on his talent. No way does Seattle have the financial resources to pay for a big wr or te. They are paying Russell and Bobby. I think they also pay kj and Avril. Pete recently raved about kj, saying how his versatility and leadership really helped the Hawks while Bobby was out. I think they bring him back for a modest deal. I actually see the Hawks paying to keep this defense together.

    • CC

      Having to pay Bobby, Kj and Cliff may be the reason that they aren’t planning on keeping Marshawn. As much as it pains me to say, the D will be kept together.

      • tony

        Marshawn is already here next year. I can see him holding out kinda like walter Jones did year to year. Does his own workout. Gets a small bump in pay. And media makes something bigger than it is. I think this situation has been blown way outta proportion. He plays out this contract, but extending him I’m uncertain of. I can see him retiring with Oakland. Oakland loves overpaying vets on declining years.

        • tony

          I’m wondering if they approach Mebane as a potential pay cut. They like approaching guys on backside of deals to see if they take slight cuts. Red, miller, rice… They have a history of doing this. With Hill playing well and some added depth, it could be tough to move on from Mebane but I see that as a possibility. Even as well as Mebane played.

          • Volume 12

            I hope not! I’d like to think PC/JS have learned they’re lesson in that they shouldn’t under-estimate the importance of having veteran guys on the field and behind the scenes. Maybe Red and Clemons didn’t put up great stats, but what’s just as important is the impact they had as leaders inside the locker room. Plus we know PC/JS seem to prefer veteran Dlineman. I think it was Rob who said ‘grown man strength.’

            • tony

              I agree, I’m not advocating this. But I do see a scenario in which this happens. If Pete is comfortable with his DTs or they add a cheap addition or 2, this is plausible. The key is Hill finishing this season. Next year they get a few guys back and add some depth. Pete has shown he’s willing to trust his youth going forward.Mebane enters age 30+. He’s already been paid handsomely already. I think it’s a very familiar situation that of miller and red. It’s that forever young mentality. Pay for there prime years and hope for a discount on declining years. Be willing to move on and trust your scouting and backups. It can be detrimental if you undervalue or overvalue players.

  7. CC

    If he is on the board when Seattle picks – unlikely – it would be unlikely that Seattle passes on him. Pete loves a rehab project, and DBG is too talented to pass up. He is the type of tall, big play receiver used to love in college – BMW but with speed.

    But the odds are that after winning back to back Super Bowls – he is off the board :o)

    At some point Seattle will have to figure out a big strong receiver to help Russell out. I like the increased TE play, but I think Moeaki is the only TE who has the hands to count on.

  8. Jake

    I think it’s too early to even speculate about the Seahawks’ draft approach. It’s really going to depend on how the rookie receivers perform in the last quarter of the season and (hopefully) the playoffs. It takes receivers a while to develop–and if you’re counting time in terms of pass plays or targets instead of games we would expect Seahawks receivers to take longer than most.

    I think Schneider’s dream scenario is to see Paul Richardson turn into a DeSean Jackson-esque deep threat, Norwood become the chain-moving security blanket, and Doug Baldwin remain the angry technician working out of the slot. If that kind of best case scenario plays out then WR can be removed from the list of “must-upgrade” positions.

    To me somebody like DBG is not who you take in the first round. The Seahawks have a bunch of compensatory picks coming next year. If they use one of them–even the third rounder–to take a shot on a high upside, high risk kind of prospect, then great. But I think you really can’t risk a big swing and a miss too often in the first round.

    • Rob Staton

      I wouldn’t say we’re speculating, just discussing among the community.

      As for waiting — I have no problem there. But Wilson needs an injection of serious talent at WR/TE. More than just a flier. More than just hoping the existing players develop. They need to land a big target who can be effective, whatever the round or stage in free agency.

      • Radman

        By my understanding, Kearse, Lockette, and Walters are all FA’s at season’s end. The only WRs under contract next year currently on the roster are Norwood, Richardson, and Baldwin. They’ll likely be looking to bring in some young, cost controlled talent to groom.

        • Rob Staton

          Kearse can be kept as a RFA.

      • Jake

        Right, but my point is that we still have four games left (plus the postseason) before the team has to make any actual decisions about the draft. That’s enough time to actually see development, not just speculate about it. If no development occurs then WR gets bumped up the priority list.

        Even if it does, I don’t think this is the kind of guy you take in round one. When you take a late first rounder you want somebody who is at worst going to be a solid depth piece for a few years, IMO. The floor for DBG is more like “fails to make the team out of training camp, is in the CFL a month later.”

        • Alaska Norm

          The point is…. It’s fun to speculate about the team we love. It’s why we all visit this site. I think Rob and everyone here is aware that things will change between now and draft day. His posts are to initiate conversation and allow others opinions.

  9. Volume 12

    Couldn’t agree more about your point on the wr’s Jake. Here’s where I’m at with this. Does RW need one ‘big’ target or multiple targets at wr and te regardless of size? I know one elite player is better than multiple good ones. And Seattle does need that DGB size receiver I agree and am not going to argue against it, but if RW is asked to be the point guard of this offense which we know he is, than doesn’t it make more sense to have as many targets as possible to spread the ball around to so the D can’t key in on one guy? The ‘small’ wr is dominating the NFL this year and I don’t know if they should reach or force the issue this year instead of taking the ‘best’ wr. And here’s my point…

    Next year’s draft is where the ‘big’ Wr is at. Tennessee wr Marquez North, Ole Miss wr Laquan Treadwell, N.D. wr Corey Robinson, Arizona wr Cayleb Jones, Miss St wr De’Runnya “Bear’ Wilson, Oregon wr Dwayne Stanford, Illinois wr Geronimo Allison, Portland St wr Victor Dean, UMass wr Tajae Sharpe. So there’s depth and those are just some of the names.

    • Phil

      Vol. 12 — I agree. If a quality big WE is available when the Seahawks pick, then pick him. But, don’t let the “perfect” be the enemy of the good. That is, if there are no quality big receivers left, then don’t pass up a quality 6’2″, or even shorter receiver. In fact, if a Golden Tate clone was available — a smallish, shifty guy who can jump for contested balls, who could fight for the back shoulder throws, who could consistently get good YAC, and who could return punts, I would take him in an instant.

      • Phil

        Damn Kindle spell check — s/b WR not WE!

    • Rob Staton

      A couple of points here Volume 12.

      First of all, the discussion about possibly drafting Green-Beckham wouldn’t be with the idea of turning the passing game into a one man show. DBG (or anyone else) would be another option, an option Seattle doesn’t currently have. They’d still be able to spread the ball around to Baldwin, Kearse, Richardson and the TE’s.

      While it’s true smaller receivers have been productive this year, also among the top five is Demaryius Thomas and Julio Jones. The likes of Antonio Brown and Golden Tate play on teams with bigger wide outs playing a key role too. It’s about variety that Seattle doesn’t currently have. They’re lacking size and they know it — which is why they asked about Vincent Jackson, Julius Thomas and Jordan Cameron.

      And regarding next years class — well that’s all well and good, but you can’t just keep waiting and hoping. The pro-active moves they made to try and land a big target mid-season shows they know this is a big need. The best player on your list for 2016 — Laquan Treadwell — suffered a horrible broken leg a few weeks ago. If you wait for 2-3 of those players and they pick up injuries or don’t declare, you’re waiting another year.

      Personally I’m not sold on the idea of DGB in any round, let alone the first, due to the character issues. But they simply have to bring in a productive, talented big target. My preference would be to call Tampa Bay again and do a deal for Vincent Jackson. But they have to do something this year and they know it.

  10. Volume 12

    “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.” Love that quote Phil! And yeah I agree and also think Seattle needs/gets that Golden Tate type wr. That is why I absolutely love Baylor wr Antwan Goodley. My favorite wr in the entire draft this year. A truly unique guy. I’ve also noticed that some of Seattle’s scouts have attended multiple Baylor games this year. Don’t know what that means if anything, but interesting none the less.

  11. Donald

    The Hawks should not take DGB. Though they need a top notch receiver that they can depend on and take attention off of the run game, the risk of blowing another 1st rd pick on a Wr (Harvin) is not worth it. He can be someone else s problem.

    There are a lot of needs that the Hawks should use its 1st rd pick on, and it should be a can’t miss impact player with no problems. Use the later rounds for risky players.

    • Rob Staton

      Let’s not forget — can’t miss impact players with no problems don’t tend to last until the end of the first round.

      • Ben

        And not all can’t-miss prospects with no problems are hits. Seahawks fans should know that.

  12. Dumbquestions

    Rob, we need some fresh insights on Chris Matthews, just added, been hanging around the roster all year. I assume (but do not know) that he didn’t show much in camp, but a lot has changed since then, and he’s got that big prototype frame we keep hearing about…is there any hope for him?

    • Rob Staton

      It’s hard to offer anything here. He barely did anything in pre-season and without access to the practice squad work outs it’s almost impossible to say if he’s making any progress. I suspect he’ll be inactive for the game tomorrow and more than likely will be the guy cut if/when they feel they want to add depth to a different position. I’m not holding out any hope he makes an impact here considering they can barely get Kevin Norwood involved.

  13. RussellWilson-statue

    Long time reader, first time commenting! What is your thoughts on WSU Vince Mayle? I could see him as a great late round pickup. Seems to have a lot of potential.

    • Rob Staton

      The game I saw he played poorly in. I don’t like to judge players on one game so I’ll give him a chance and hope more WSU tape emerges online.

    • rowdy

      The little I seen he looks more like a body catcher haven’t seen much high pointing from him. Again I’ve seen very little of him.

    • Alaska Norm

      He looks the part but from the few games I have watched does not have the hands. Looks like a mid to low pick with potential. More of a basketball back ground then football.

  14. Ho Lee Chit

    The word from OU is that Dorial Green-Beckham will play ball at Oklahoma in 2015. He needs the year to rebuild his draft stock. That said, I doubt the Hawks would be interested in the first round. I predict they look for defensive line help in round 1. They could be in the market for a big bodied receiver or TE in round 2 or 3. After the Harvin experience, staying away from any locker room problem seems like a wise idea. We are not desperate. Schneider may trade back into round 2 again, although it may be more difficult this year.

  15. Radman

    I’d rather see them invest in other areas early on. They can get the possession guy later on, if all they’re looking for is a possession guy.

    I can’t pretend to know why they passed on some tall WRs at various points who seemed like exceedingly good fits for replacing Sidney (Hunter, Bryant, among others). But this draft has some intriguing WRs in that 6’3-6’4″ range worth a pick in the middle and late rounds.

    I’d like to see them invest in other areas and then take a few shots at some of those guys deeper into day 2.

  16. Nathan

    Is part of the problem, our inability to design plays to suit our rookies?

    I’m sure you all saw the play where Cobb lined up in the backfield against the Pats. Wouldn’t a similiar sort of play(and developing him as a backfield threat more generally) be perfect for Richardson?

    The other one is the TD Harvin got against the chargers, why not try that as a trickshot to catch the D off guard?

  17. Volume 12

    After watching the Georgia Tech/Florida St game a few hours ago, one guy who stood out to me was wr Darren Waller. I think someone on here already mentioned him so I’m not going to take credit for that, but color me intrigued. He seems very ‘Seahawky.’ If we’re talking about taking a ‘big’ wr with character concerns than he should be a guy to consider. 6’5, 230-240 lbs., runs in the 4.5-4.55 range, plays in a HEAVY run first offense so you know he makes the most of his opportunities and can run block. Plus Georgia Tech is somewhat WR-U. Now he is a long-strider, runs with heavy feet, and kinda plods through his routes and he does have Megatron like size or he could be another Stephen Hill. But a flier in the 3-5 rd. range would/could be a steal on this guy. Thoughts?

    • CC

      I totally agree with you! I like Waller a lot – and I mentioned him a few weeks ago. He’s one of those mid rounders that look like he could fit with Seattle’s running mentality.

    • bigDhawk

      I mentioned Waller’s name several weeks ago, along with his battery mate 6-3 222 SR DeAndre Smelter. Georgia Tech fascinates me. For being such an old school option running offense they have an uncanny tradition of attracting huge, NFL-archtypical wideouts. I’ve been watching GT all season at every opportunity and I like both these guys.

  18. EranUngar

    No, thank you. Not in the first or the 2nd or in the 7th. The trend we saw this year was character match and team competability. The Harvin affair demonstrated it more. The Seahawks will only pick players that match team spirit etc. This one does not.

    As for the WR needs – they will always be there. The needs on the DL and OL remain (Avrill and Carp FA) as well as others. I believe that they will let PRich and Norwood keep growing like Tate and not draft WR before the 4th unless the steal of the century comes along. A TE might be picked earlier if they find someone they really like.

    That’s just me.

    • Rob Staton

      How do we know he won’t fit in with the team spirit?

      • Hay stacker509

        I’m with Rob, I don’t think his team spirit is an argument. It was his bone headed move to physically hurt a woman. I personally think with everything that’s happened with rice, AP, and Greg hardy he’s going to stay at OU and let everything blow over and show us why he’s a former top 5 recruit

      • EranUngar

        We know it because bone headed actions involving dope use and domestic violance will have an effect on his playing availability for his team (as they did). That tells you that the guy is not “all in for his team”, he is not even “all in for himself”. Being there for your team on game day as ready and as prepered as you can posibly be is the team spirit. Being suspended for drugs or hurting a women does not qualify.

        What this team was looking for in the last draft are team leaders, players who gave it all for thier team. A player that got himself expeled and can’t even play for his team is not that.

        I am surprised you asked that question. I didn’t know the guy before this article and you said it all yourself.

        • Rob Staton

          How does that history relate to team spirit? The Seahawks aren’t a choir boy outfit. There are plenty of players with history. Check out Bruce Irvin’s history. Heck they traded the farm for Percy Harvin and admitted after it failed they’d keep taking shots. Fitting within the team structure isn’t about having a perfect character history. It’s about where you’re at now. If DGB can prove he’s a changed man who has learnt his lesson, then this isn’t an issue. If anything the Seahawks have shown they love a project like this.

  19. 300ZXNA

    Looking at Chicago, I am wondering if they maybe tear down the roster and start a rebuild. Cutler isn’t looking like the answer at QB, their defense is old and in shambles. So I wonder if Brandon Marshall might be available this offseason.

    He’s old enough that likely wouldn’t cost anywhere near what Harvin cost in trade. At the same time, I realize he wouldn’t go for a 6th like Boldin did last year. His numbers would struggle here, but given that he is at the tail end of his prime and has never played in a SB, I wonder if winning might trump pure numbers at this point. He’s already had his large second contract.

    PC/JS have already shown that they like him due to their prior interest. He would be the PERFECT fit for the team, a big redzone target who can also stretch the field. He’s proven, so less worry of busting through the draft.

    On the downside, he would likely still cost a decent chunk of salary cap and draft capital. He’s old enough that PC/JS might be hesitant to commit to him more than a year or two. He has had personal issues in the past with borderline personality disorder, but at the same time he appears to have committed to treatment and seems to be doing a lot better the past few years. Also, no clue if he is even available.

    I just find it an intriguing fit if any opportunity presents itself.

    • Volume 12

      I agree that Chicago might blow up their roster. But I wonder if te Marcellus Bennett is a better fit for Seattle. Obviously he’s Black Santa’s aka Michael Bennett’s brother and during the off-season he comes here to Seattle and plays pick-up Bball games with alot of the guys currently on the roster. He’s my no.1 preference for free agents this off-season.

      • Rob Staton

        Martellus Bennett is under contract in Chicago until the end of the 2016 season. His cap hit is $6m in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

        They may well blow things up and maybe he is a casualty, but it’d be a strange move on their behalf. He’s been exceptionally productive for a TE again this year and could top 1000 yards. If anything he’s one of the few players they’d probably keep.

    Looks like he’s staying in college this year. Too bad, after this year we’re probably not going to have a shot at him.

  21. AlaskaHawk

    10-7 Seahawks at half time. Philly defense good and offense having trouble moving the ball. Seahawks defense looks great and offense able to move the ball by passing.

      Play of game is Wilson scoring on 26 yard run on left side of field.

  22. Ben2

    Oh, another thought….I know our defense is kicking ass, but I also felt like we exposed the real mark Sanchez today. Not a guy I’d trust to win a big playoff game for me if I’m chip Kelly.

  23. Bill Bobaggins

    Apparently the Hawks are interested in Duron Carter, son of Cris Carter. He’s of the big WR mold, 6’5″ 209 lbs. He played in the CFL and has absolutely torn it up. Big time recruit out of HS, but academically couldn’t cut it.


    Bottom line, they obviously are looking for a big body…and desperately need one.
