Continuing our positional season preview we look at the Seattle Seahawks quarterbacks. In 2018, there is more pressure than ever on Russell Wilson.
Today we finish the first half of our positional previews. In the spotlight are players who are accustomed to being in the spotlight, the quarterbacks. To catch up on the other offense possition previews, click the link.
Let’s just start by establishing that there will not be a quarterback controversy with the Seattle Seahawks to begin the season. There are two quarterbacks, Russell Wilson, and a solid clipboard carrying Brett Hundley. Last week, the Seahawks made a trade with the Green Bay Packers for the former 2015 fifth-round draft pick.
Hundley may only give hand signals or be in victory formation this season, but the move does give some backup insurance for Wilson, who has only missed one play in six seasons. The Seahawks enter the 2018 opener with just two quarterbacks, but the starter, Wilson, will be leaned on heavily to carry the team.
