I’m positive lots of you have been hoping the Seattle Seahawks can be unusually aggressive in free company and go after one of many high offensive linemen obtainable. First-Workforce All-Professional Corey Linsley (previously) of the Inexperienced Bay Packers is extremely thought to be the NFL’s greatest heart and contemplating Seattle’s personal Ethan Pocic can also be a free agent, the concept of Linsley being Russell Wilson’s new heart will need to have been salivating.
…And so right here I’m to squash these goals. I imply I’m not likely squashing something by posting the announcement, the actual dream squashers are the Los Angeles Chargers and new head coach Brandon Staley.
Linsley is now the best paid heart within the league and shall be reunited with fellow former Packers OL Bryan Bulaga, who performs at proper deal with. That’s nice information for Justin Herbert, to say the least.
The Seahawks have been by no means linked to Linsley and that deal would’ve been manner out of character and unlikely to have even been made. By the best way, whereas there was some reported curiosity by Seattle in guard Joe Thuney, there’s no manner they might’ve been 5 years, $80 million just like the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs have been.

If nothing else, this confirms that for the top-shelf OL in free company they’re nonetheless making financial institution even with a decreased wage cap. As common, if you wish to see the Seahawks work on the offensive line it’ll must be a number of days from now when that second wave of signings start.
