Extensive coverage from the VMAC can’t come soon enough for loyal Seattle Seahawks fans. Before the drills and drills begin, here are five storylines to keep an eye on.
For many diehard football fans, there are two seasons. The first is the football season and the second is what will happen during the football season, season. Their wait is almost over. On July 27, the Seattle Seahawks open their training camp in preparation for a successful 2021.
Extensive coverage from the Virginia Mason Athletic Center can’t come soon enough for loyal 12’s. Before the drills and drills begin, here are five storylines to keep an eye on.
Is Russian really happy?
Big question. In February, Russell Wilson’s comments on the Dan Patrick Show plus his agent releasing a list of teams RW3 would accept would accept a trade to run the Seahawks (and NFL). In the aftermath, Seattle coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider made it clear that they heard the star quarterback.
Recently, Wilson put on a happy face in public and professed his love for the Emerald City. Did he act, or are his feelings sincere? Russ is a stand-up dude, so it’s probably the latter. On the other hand, it could change depending on how often he gets hit in 2021.
Will Jamal Adams’ contact be a distraction?
Jamal Adams is not known for his patience both on and off the football field. One of the reasons the All-Pro forced his way out of New York was because he felt the Jets weren’t moving fast enough with a contract extension. Not only was he angry that Gang Green didn’t show him enough appreciation, but he was also very fierce about it.
A year later, Adams is now part of the Seattle Seahawks and still doesn’t have a new contract. The Seahawks had a number of other problems earlier this year. Now that the draft is over and RW3 is in a good mood, it’s time to make a deal with Adams. Schneider cannot let this turn into a postponement situation.
Life without KJ
12’s must find it extremely strange to start a training camp that is missing outside of linebacker KJ Wright. He has been part of the team for ten years. Wright is still a free agent and the Seahawks seem in no rush to get him back.
When Wright entered the open market, he said Seattle didn’t get a hometown discount. The situation has clearly changed. On Sirius XM Tuesday, Wright said the door was still open to a return.
“Yes, there is a chance,” Wright said. “There’s a chance, and I’m not closing the door to Seattle. I thought it would be a good idea to go to free agency, but they’re going to wait until training camp so we’ll see.”
Wright is a stable player and can only improve the defense. Without him, the Seahawks will have to rely on Darrell Taylor, Ben Burr-Kirven or Cody Barton.
If the Seattle Seahawks were a running team, this would be the line of attack they’d want. But as much as Pete Carroll would like them to, the Seahawks are not a running team. They depend on what Wilson can do if he falls back to pass.
Last season, hostile defenses came after Russ early and often. They should do better in 2021. There is only one new face among the starting five. In March, the Seahawks traded for Las Vegas security guard Gabe Jackson. He replaces Mike Iupati as left guard. Left tackle Duane Brown is solid, but the Seahawks need better play from Ethan Pocic (C), Brandon Shell (RT) and Damien Lewis (RG).
After four years with the Seahawks, former Pro Bowl cornerback Shaquil Griffen left as a free agent. It won’t be easy to replace a fixture in Seattle high school. Especially someone who was the best cover angle on the team.
DJ Reed now becomes the top corner of the Seahawks. Opposite Reed are newly signed Ahkello Witherspoon and inconsistent Tre Flowers. The hope is that Witherspoon can stay on the pitch more than in the first four years of his career. So far, he has only played in 47 out of 64 possible games and no more than 14 in any season.
