Those names do not invoke excitement from one of the NFL’s most devoted fanbases.
They’ve been used to Russell Wilson defying pass rushers to create big plays and touchdowns.
Playoff berths were a normal occurrence during Wilson’s tenure and fans were spoiled by the team’s constant success.
Unfortunately, those days ended last season when Wilson dislocated a finger in his throwing hand.
The Seahawks ended up missing the playoffs and Wilson isn’t with the team anymore.
Given their shallow rotation at quarterback, they are in dire need of reinforcements under center, as CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson shared.
Pete Carroll on if they re-sign Geno Smith do they still need to sign a veteran quarterback: We are still in the quarterback business. We are still looking at the veterans who are out there.

Anderson tweeted, “Pete Carroll on if they re-sign Geno Smith do they still need to sign a veteran quarterback: We are still in the quarterback business. We are still looking at the veterans who are out there.”
There’s no guarantee that they will bring back Smith, especially because he did little to keep the Seahawks’ postseason hopes alive when Wilson was out.
If they want to at least remain competitive with the teams in their division, they should have someone better than Lock and Eason.
Who Will The Seahawks Get At Quarterback?
Unfortunately, they don’t have many assets to trade away, except for Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf.
If they will trade for Garoppolo, San Francisco will want a collection of draft picks or one of those players in return.
Either way, the Seahawks’ roster weakens and their ability to build through the draft is questionable.
