As the Seattle Seahawks start looking to rebuild, they’ll have to examine their roster and evaluate the best moves for their longterm future.
The Seattle Seahawks have been struggling. The Seattle Seahawks are currently at 6-10. The Seahawks will be out of the playoffs for only the second time since 2017. This will be the Seahawks first losing season since 2011.
After a long, solid run of success, it appears that Seattle is on the verge of dramatic changes.
The Seahawks will need to figure out what they want to do with their future and, as part of that, they’ll have to make some very difficult decisions with their roster. It is likely that this franchise will go through a rebuilding phase, no matter what Seahawks fans think.
Seattle will make big trades to acquire potential future stars and draft picks. Or will the team look for stability and try to rebuild around its current stars?
Seattle Seahawks: Three players Seattle should consider moving away from while the Seahawks rebuild
Geno Smith has witnessed many teams fail during his time in the NFL. Of course, while many will be quick to point out Smith’s history and overall lack of success throughout his career, he is hardly the reason why Seattle isn’t winning right now.
So, if Smith’s play isn’t why this team is having issues, why should the Seahawks go ahead and move on from him?
Smith isn’t getting any younger and he’s likely not going to get much better. Teams know exactly what to expect of Smith, the 31-year old quarterback, as he prepares for free agency.
He’s been efficient and generally pretty effective this year when asked to play, but he hasn’t really put the Seahawks in the best position to win. There’s a good chance that he won’t be doing that any time soon.
Smith is on a pretty cheap deal, so it wouldn’t necessarily be the worst thing if Seattle decided to keep him, but given his age, it wouldn’t necessarily hurt the Seahawks if they chose to move him elsewhere to open up a spot on the roster for someone a little younger.
