Seattle was thought to be a possible landing spot for a quarterback, rookie or otherwise, during the 2022 NFL Draft. After all, Geno Smith, Drew Lock and Jacob Eason don’t exactly bring the same juice as Russell Wilson, who departed to Denver via trade earlier this offseason
But the Seahawks spent the weekend status pat on the position, opting now no longer to pick out a signal-caller with any in their 9 choices withinside the draft or accumulate a veteran QB, like, say, Baker Mayfield, thru trade.
And so, with three weeks until OTAs begin, Seattle will move forward with Smith, Lock and Eason under center, with the first two expected to battle it out this summer for the Week 1 starting gig. That is, unless the Seahawks find what they’re ultimately looking for.
“We`re always competing. That’s all we know how to do around here. We’re always checking out everything that’s possible,” Pete Carroll told NFL Network’s Rich Eisen during Saturday’s draft coverage when asked about adding to the QB room. “Right now, really excited about seeing these guys for the first time and we’ll see what happens in the time to come.
