It's once again that time of year where we hope that the Seahawks will go after some big name targets and free agency and come away somewhat disappointed. Coming into Wednesday, Seattle had signed another cornerback castoff from the San Francisco 49ers and signed Poona Ford to stay in Seattle for two more years. Neither the offensive line and defensive line were addressed. Not until the second half of the recording of this latest show.
After talking about missed opportunities in free agency, we look back on some of the worst takes regarding the drama surrounding Russell Wilson. We have multiple theories to choose from on why Russ was not named in the letter to season ticket holders and Adam likely nails the easiest explanation. We also diagnose how Sam Darnold entered the quarterback conversation this past week after Pete Carroll's quotes from December were used to support two different trade proposals.
In the second half of the show, we get news that the Seahawks have acquired an offensive lineman from the Las Vegas Raiders. He wasn't the one discussed in the first half, but we take a look at some of the highlights of the move and talk about what it could mean for Damien Lewis. The Seahawks are also signing a veteran tight end, but it highlights a key area the Seahawks aren't taking advantage of when it comes to contracts to try and squeeze multiple moves into this offseason.
Mike Silver lands in the Do Better segment for what was probably the worst take about the Russell Wilson situation, and Adam takes issue with characterizing Deshaun Watson's issues with the Houston franchise as anything remotely similar to Russ in Seattle. Better at life honors go to the 1984 Seahawks defense for some overdue recognition and to the “Acid Queen” as Adam rebounds from last week's call out to do better.
