Danny Kelly, editor-in-chief and lead writer at FieldGulls.com as well as the co-host of the Real in the Field Podcast is welcomed back on to the show this week. Russell Wilson's agent Mark Rodgers was on Brock and Salk this morning, and Danny and Brandan talk about their impressions of the interview and whether or not we could be waiting a while longer before seeing a deal.
With OTAs starting, Danny weighs in on whether or not Seahawks fans should have any concerns about the other options behind center if Wilson were to get injured. Michael Bennett and Bruce Irvin are no-shows for the “voluntary” training, but we've seemingly come to accept that Marshawn Lynch won't be there and nobody seems to take issue with him exercising his option not to show.
With Wilson's contract as the big news of the offseason, Bobby Wagner seems to be flying under the radar. His appearance on the NFL top 100 list shows he's getting the respect he deserves from players around the league. But is he ranked too low?
Finally, Danny talks to Brandan about Tyler Lockett and Kristjan Sokoli as some of his favorite stories coming out of the draft. What, if any, changes we could see with new defensive coordinator Kris Richard, and Jon Ryan's appears on American Ninja Warrior.
