Some of the dates are not fully scheduled though.
But that's up to the NFL, GM's and Owners restraining themselves from throwing insane money to "okay" QBs.
Russell Wilson is in the category of the Brees, Rodgers, Brady's of the NFL, not the Staffords, Newtons, Ryans, etc. It's not Wilson's fault that teams are overpaying for bad QB play.
IF we were talking about extending a Jared Goff, i would trade his ass quicker than anything else... but this is Russell Wilson who has broken the mold on what a QB can do (and this isn't even factoring in the size element that the NFL finally looks past).
Tom Brady wasn't taking sweetheart deals in his late 20's; I don't think it's fair to expect Wilson do to the same. That's not how the NFL works and I don't imagine that Wilson would leverage himself out of that position knowing that the game is so hard on the body.
The NFL ducked things up by allowing that on-call foul against the Saints.
Had the Saints been in the NFL, they would have been there and not a rookie contract QB. This would have flipped all the "you cant play in the SB if you're paying your QB."
Here's the footage of our game. The guys from the Podcast (really just two of them but I don't know what else to call their team) only had 8 but Jameson (our team) had 13 so we added two people to their side to even up the teams a little.
This is the footage of the game.
Was a fun game, pretty even until someone threw on the jets to seal the game at the end.
Really cool thing happened today at our practice, some other guys that were on the field earlier wanted to scrim and we played 8-on-8.
Two the dudes on their side were the host of Seahawks Man 2 Man Podcast (Michael-Shawn Dugar and Christopher Kidd). Super cool dudes to play with.
I'll have some video of our practice scrim but not a lot of video since I played a fair share.
Seahawks sign two more DE's
The Seahawks today are also signing defensive end Nate Orchard, who was in for a visit earlier this week.
The Seahawks have signed Cassius Marsh to a one-year deal, per source.
My first glance is that Seattle would love to trade out of the 1st round twice for more picks on Day 2.
Also... would New England really draft a QB? I feel like they would draft a QB late, late, late. They do draft QBs each year but I feel like they see their success with late round picks and then turn those guys into higher-round picks on the 2-4 games they'll play over 3 years.
My personal draft position board (since I don't watch the mocks or know who's worth drafting); DL/DE, S, CB, WR, LB & OL <in that order of priority.
