With the new league year and free agency just a couple weeks away, this week's show focuses on how the Seahawks should approach free agency. Is it best to fill needs through free agency or trust your scouting and address the biggest needs through the draft? The guys look at the various position groups for the ones that seem to be the most critical to address this offseason. When looking at the offensive line, it seems as though there's still a spot on this team for George Fant even with Tom Cable now in Oakland, but Adam doesn't want to admit it.
There was a recent article by a Seattle reporter and national analyst toying with the idea that the Seahawks should consider trading Russell Wilson. With that in mind, the guys mock up a phone call between the general managers of the Browns and Seahawks. (31:57)
How the Seahawks approach free agency will also be dependent on how they view their chances at getting compensatory picks in the 2019 draft. Brandan talks about which Seahawks free agents could net Seattle some compensatory picks next year if they move on in free agency.
Corbin Smith, co-host of the Legion of 12 Radio podcast and contributor to The Seahawks Wire, joins the show this week to talk about the trade of Marcus Peters to the division rival L.A. Rams. With Trumaine Johnson looking like he'll be moving on, how much better are the Rams going to be with Peters? Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham are two big names on offense who could both be on other teams in 2018. Corbin talks about some of the things Seattle would be missing if Richardson leaves, and he talks about the salary the Seahawks would want to consider to keep him on the team. If Graham leaves, he has thoughts on who might be worth an incentive-based contract to lure to Seattle. Follow Corbin on Twitter @CorbinSmithNFL. (41:50)
Closing out the show, our Flock sends in some emails with some thoughts on offseason show ideas. In the do better segment, Adam talks about one airline that made an emergency landing because of a gassy passenger and Brandan talks about the conclusion of his appliance experience. Another SpaceX launch earns Adam's better at life nod, while the USA Women's hockey team and their gold medal victory has Brandan feeling as though some revenge was earned against Canada.
