Pete Carroll not scapegoating Russell Wilson, but the quarterback may not like what he hears after the Seattle Seahawksaccident and burning. After enjoying unprecedented freedom on the field this season, Wilson is set to be reintroduced by his head coach.
Carroll has concluded that the “Let Russ Cook” approach that worked so well in the first half of the 2020 NFL season turned into a proverbial wet cleanse on aisle 6 and a quick ouster from the playoffs. .
Russell Wilson went from MVP candidate to vice-expert
If the Seattle Seahawks are going to run the ball more next season, quarterback Russell Wilson needs a reliable backup behind him.
Chris Carson, who had a pair of 1,000-yard seasons, slipped to 681 yards in 12 games this year, but picked up a 4.8-yard best for each attempt. However, the 26 – year – old Carson has just ended his rookie contract, so the Seahawks have to decide on the fate of an injured backbone. with injuries every season in the league.
Wilson was a rush at Seattle, No. 2. Behind him was Carlos Hyde, ran for 356 yards in 10 games. At 30 years old, Hyde is also an upcoming free agent.
The bad news on the face of a depth card is getting worse: The Seahawks have no bricks in the first and third rounds of the 2021 NFL draft as a result of the trade they made to secure Jamal Adams’ safety from the New York Jets.
The Seahawks can definitely run back in the second round. Awaiting further improvements, however, they would not be able to address other needs until the fourth round.
