The Seahawks made a couple moves in the last week of free agency and freeing up some salary cap space with the release of Ed Dickson and the announcement that Tedric Thompson would be released soon. With those two moves announced on the same day, Seahawks fans were anticipating bigger news. Instead, we learn that Jadeveon Clowney's public asking price has now dropped below the $20 million mark. At the very least, hopefully it means there is some resolution on the issue soon.
With some down time ahead of the NFL Draft later this month, we take a look back at the 2019 free agency period and the situation that led the Seahawks to trade Frank Clark and if that's a move that John Schneider would like to have back or if he would need to do all over again. What ultimately came of the draft picks that were exchanged with the Kansas City Chiefs? Though Ziggy Ansah was the biggest miss of the previous offseason, the risk may still have been worth the reward although we take a look at some of the other moves that ultimately could have been accomplished with the cap space that was dedicated for Ansah.
