Seahawks LB Wagner Feels Good About the Hawks Winning the NFC West in 2020

The conference the Seahawks are preparing to battle in 2020 looks drastically different than the one from a season ago.

But linebacker Bobby Wagner doesn’t believe that should alter the impact the Seahawks will have in any way, Jelani Scott of reports.

During an appearance on ESPN’s First Take Wednesday morning, the six-time Pro Bowler and 2010s All-Decade Team honoree was asked how his team, fresh off an 11-5 campaign, can compete in a re-tooled NFC that now includes Tom Brady, DeAndre Hopkins and a number of revamped, still improving rosters.

It could just be the offseason bravado talking but, judging by his answer, Wagner would have no issue doubling — and tripling — down on his claims should anyone revisit them in the future.

“I feel really confident. Obviously, Russell [Wilson] is an amazing quarterback; the things that he does on the field are just amazing. Like you said, he’s one of the greatest quarterbacks in our game,” Wagner said. “We’re confident on that side. I feel like from the defensive standpoint, there’s a lot of room for improvement. We have to play a little bit better. I feel like if we make those changes and make those improvements, I still feel like we’ll be the team to beat.”

What’s the Status of the Seahawks Receiving Core as Free Agency Closes In? has a new article out discussing how things look to be shaping up with free agency ready to start very soon, and how teams wide receiver cores are looking going into the process.

Top three WRs in 2019: Tyler Lockett (82-1,057-8), DK Metcalf (58-900-7), David Moore (17-301-2 — restricted free agent).

With Lockett and Metcalf both under team control through at least 2021, and with Moore being a restricted free agent, the Hawks will likely not need to focus too much energy on this position. As far as complementing what Russell Wilson does well, consider that Seahawks wideouts caught 32 deep passes in 2019, the most in the NFL, per NGS

Michael Bennett Says He Wants to Wrap Up His Career with the Seahawks

Michael Bennett has been something of a nomad recently, playing with three teams the past two seasons. Now the 34-year-old free agent would love to return to the scene of his greatest success: Seattle, Kevin Patra of reports.

“I would love to end my career in Seattle,” he said, via NBC Sports Northwest. “It’s not up to you, though. It’s up to the team.”

Bennett’s best years came in his Seahawks run from 2013-2017. Since then, the pass rusher has been traded three times in two seasons. First, he was shipped from Seattle to Philadelphia in 2018. Then, during last offseason, Bennett was traded from Philly to New England. After just six games in 2019, the Patriots sent him to Dallas, where he closed out the season.

“My time in Seattle was great because I didn’t just grow as a player, I grew as a man, and I grew as an individual. I could never say anything bad about Seattle,” Bennett said. “I feel like Seattle was such a great part of my life. I’m so thankful for the city.”

Seahawks Bring in Former Browns Executives Eliot Wolf and Alonzo Highsmith

The Seahawks are beefing up their talent evaluation staff ahead of the 2020 draft by hiring former Browns executives Eliot Wolf and Alonzo Highsmith according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

Both men will serve as draft consultants for Seahawks GM John Schneider.The pair spent the past two seasons in Cleveland, with Wolf serving as the team’s assistant general manager and Highsmith the vice president of player personnel.

Wolf, regarded as a rising talent evaluator, mutually agreed to part ways with the Browns last month after they tried to convince him to remain on staff under new GM Andrew Berry. Schneider and Wolf spent eight years together in the Packers’ front office (2002-09), before the former left for the Seahawks.

Highsmith would arrive in Green Bay in 2012 and has worked alongside Wolf ever since. Garafolo added that both are candidates to remain with Seattle long term.

Some of their more pressing needs include restocking their defensive and offensive lines.

Seahawks WR Metcalf Says He’s Ready for Bigger and Better in 2020

Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf had an outstanding rookie season. But not everyone was convinced he could play the part, which is why he fell to the end of the NFL draft’s second round, where the Seahawks traded up to take him, Adam Jude of the Seattle Times reports.
Metcalf looked and played the part of a budding superstar as a rookie, quickly emerging as Seattle’s No. 2 receiver and posting 58 receptions for 900 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 regular-season games. A few weeks after his 22nd birthday, he then set an NFL rookie playoff record with 160 yards receiving in the Seahawks’ first-round playoff victory at Philadelphia.

“Just showing everyone what I already knew I could do,” Metcalf said in a phone interview Friday afternoon. He is in Miami this week of Sunday’s Super Bowl to promote his work with Panini NFL trading cards. On Friday, he was among a group of NFL players to participate in a skills camp for kids hosted by Panini.

Reflecting on his rookie season, Metcalf said he was most proud that he was able to play in all 18 games for the Seahawks, a year after a cervical neck fracture at Ole Miss in October 2018 ended his college career and threatened to prematurely end his football career period.

“Just going out there and playing every game and being able to play as many snaps as I needed to, knowing I had the injury history in college,” he said.

“It’s a mountain I’m still climbing,” he added. “I haven’t reached the peak, and that peak is still 10, 15 years from now. But I’m just trying to enjoy the moment, because I know football can be taken away from you at any point in time. Ever since the neck injury, each moment I have with football — being in the weight room, being around my teammates — I just try to enjoy as much as I can. And I want to give back as much as I can.”
