148: The Seahawks show they care about o-line, Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog with post-combine thoughts, and the start of free agency
The Seahawks show they're turning over a new leaf in 2017 by bringing in offensive lineman in the initial days of free agency. They sign a former #2 overall draft pick, but lose out in signing former Packers guard T.J. Lang to Detroit. Does an old mantra about this team still apply? Seattle also appears to be in the market for running backs past their prime. The guys talk about what may be the logic in that strategy and the merits of Adrian Peterson vs Jamaal Charles.
The guys welcome Rob Staton of seahawksdraftblog.com and co-host of the 3000 NFL Mock Draft podcast. With the combine wrapping up last week, Rob has thoughts on who the Seahawks might want to look at in the draft. Unfortunately he has some bad news. The position of greatest concern is one of the weaker positions in the draft, especially in terms of the explosive type of lineman the Seahawks tend to try and find. He's especially excited by the prospects of some of the defensive players and the opportunity to find some key guys to help bolster the Legion of Boom.
In the final half of the show, the guys explore some of the biggest surprises in free agency, take a look at a surprising USA Today article and wonder why any NFL GM would pick up the phone when the Patriots are calling. Better at life nods go out to Michael Bennett for announcing he will be donating his endorsement money to charity and to The Truth for a nice gesture to his former NBA teammates.
