Seahawks receiver group looks richer than anyone expected

It wasn’t supposed to be like this. After the Seattle Seahawks lost Paul Richardson in free agency Womens Frank Clark Jersey , their receiving depth seemed to take a tremendous hit, especially if second-year pro Amara Darboh wouldn’t prove capable to step into a significant role. Despite the fact that Darboh remains even more inconspicuous today than he did as a rookie, the Seahawks have way more riches at the position than anyone expected a month ago.As of March 1, Seattle’s receiver depth looked something like thisoug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett, Amara Darboh, David Moore, Tanner McEvoy, and Cyril Grayson.As of April 1, they added Marcus Johnson from the Philadelphia Eagles and Jaron Brown from the Arizona Cardinals. The Seahawks then opted not to draft a receiver and added no significant prospect in the UDFA category. By June, the team rounded out the depth with Brandon Marshall, Damore’ea Stringfellow, and Keenan Reynolds.The hope seemed to be that out of this group you could carve out one player who would uplift the offense next to Baldwin and Lockett. With the regular season just two weeks away, it really feels like Seattle’s coaches could have some internal arguments as to which one will start and how often at least two others should get in on the action, because there’s reason for a whole lot more optimism at the position than there was when training camp opened.A month ago, Brown seemed the best bet to take the lead because he’s 6’3, 200 lbs, with five years of experience and a host of excuses after playing much of his time with the likes of Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert when Carson Palmer was unable to go. Brown seemed to have the potential for so much more than what he did in Arizona, and so far that’s what he’s shown. He’s drawn praise in both training camp and preseason play and Russell Wilson has shown some favoritism towards him thus far.That “baller” is David Moore, the 2017 seventh round selection who has clearly taken several steps ahead of Darboh at this point. Moore has caught five passes for 142 yards in the preseason Womens Tom Johnson Jersey , it seems a shame now to keep a receiver for special teams reasons when offensive benefits have such a bigger payoff in the long run; the Seahawks could end up parting ways with Lockett in 2019 (just as they did with Golden Tate and Richardson), while Marshall would surely be looking at retirement if he even does stick with Seattle for the whole year. Looking at it in those terms, how many offensive players do you want to risk losing — like Moore, Darboh, even Reynolds — to have an extra gunner on coverage?Besides, Michael Dickson doesn’t even need you to down punts, dude’s sticking it on the one-yard line and poppin’ it o.o.b.Finally, Stringfellow has more than zero potential offensively and Grayson could be an above-adequate returner, but the Seahawks may not have the “luxury” to keep guys like that because they have the luxury of at least five, maybe six actual receivers at the position ready to receiver. It makes you wonder if Seattle is going to be working the trade lines again during final cuts and getting some value out of the position few thought they had much value in to begin with.Rams-49ers gets flexed out of Sunday Night Football, 49ers-Seahawks likely to follow suit Week 7 of the 2018 NFL season was supposed to feature a Sunday Night Football game between the Los Angeles Rams and the San Francisco 49ers. Networks really were sold on the 49ers being playoff contenders, hence they got five scheduled primetime appearances, but with Jimmy Garoppolo done for the season and the 49ers sitting at 1-4, they’ve been kicked out of that timeslot.The NFL announced earlier this week that Rams vs. 49ers will be booted to the CBS 1:25 PM PT kickoff slot — Dallas vs. Washington will be the featured game in that window — while the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs and 4-1 Cincinnati Bengals get moved to the night-capper. The Chiefs are already on SNF this week at the New England Patriots.Now it has to be noted that the Seattle Seahawks have a Week 13 home date with the 49ers on Sunday Night Football. Obviously this was supposed to be “Richard Sherman returns to Seattle” as the main storyline. Assuming the 49ers stay bad, then regardless of how the Seahawks perform over the next several weeks, you can expect this matchup to be moved to the 1 PM slate. Seattle also has an SNF game with the aforementioned Chiefs in Week 16, although the fate of that one more or less depends on whether the Seahawks are still in the playoff hunt by then.

The Seahawks safeguard should be highly enhanced this season with the increases they have made and players returning solid. They ought to have a decent pass surge and more profundity. Make My Essay
