2012 NFL Free Agency: Reviewing the Seattle Seahawks

Today, we are going to review the Free Agency of the Seattle Seahawks. This is pretty simple, actually, and comes down to what you think about Matt Flynn as a QB. The Quarterback position was clearly the biggest need for the Seahawks going into the offseason.

Now, this article isn't really the place for me to pass judgment on the whole Matt Flynn signing (sure seems like a lot of money for an untested QB, right?), but I do think that whatever you think of Flynn is what you think about the Seahawks' Free Agency moves. They did have a couple of pretty good signings on the side, though. Resigning Marshawn Lynch quite early on is a good example. The Seahawks also resigned Red Bryant.

In terms of a couple of other FA moves which might be in the Seahawks' future are current FAs David Hawthorne and Leroy Hill. Both were starters at the LB position of the Seahawks, but I don't know how interested Seattle will be in terms of bringing them back. LB is a pretty big position of need, and how much would the status quo help them?

And speaking of positions of needs, when Seattle looks toward the Draft, I would imagine that they will want to fill a couple of needs: mainly, LB and some form of pass rush. On the offensive side of the ball, Seattle could use a bit of help on the offensive line. Most mock drafts I have seen project Seattle to pick up David DeCastro, the guard from Stanford.
