After a long time, they will feel what it takes to search for another franchise quarterback, even if head coach Pete Carroll constantly declared that they would not trade Wilson.
They got Drew Lock from the Wilson trade but he is yet to pan out in his career.
Unfortunately, those three names do not bring much excitement to Seahawks fans.
However, they can make a big splash by trading for Deshaun Watson.
While that move is sensible, ESPN’s senior NFL reporter Jeremy Fowler is painting a scenario wherein the Seahawks won’t make a push for the Pro Bowl quarterback.
As list of teams in the mix for Deshaun Watson start to crystallize, Seattle hasn't been a major player to this point. After asking around yesterday and today there just hasn't been much buzz about Seattle and Watson. Maybe that changes. Could roll with Drew Lock and another QB

As of writing, the New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers, and Cleveland Browns are the frontrunners to acquire Watson.
The Atlanta Falcons will also have a meeting with the 2020 passing yards leader.
Seahawks On Rebuild?
If they would like to acquire Watson, the Seahawks can use the draft capital they got from the Broncos for Wilson.
They can combine those picks with valuable players to strengthen the package.
Despite the assets at their disposal, it seems like Seattle isn’t casting their dice on Watson.
Since they acquired Wilson via the draft, that’s the path that they will likely explore.
