What’s up 12s!

A lot has been going on in the past week in the world of the Seahawks as far as free agent picks. So, let’s just jump right into it and break some of these down.

 

1. Luke Willson re-signing (TE)

We can all collectively breathe a sigh of relief, especially the rockaholic Hawk fans, Luke Willson is back with us for at least another year! Despite the connection he’s made with the listeners and jocks of this station, Luke was legitimately a damn good tight end for the hawks. The only thing, I feel, that is keeping him from being our starter, is the bar set by Graham. Regardless, having him available to the team, helps me sleep at night. We have no worries when it comes to TE.

2. Arthur Brown (LB)

Hailing all the way from the fine city of Baltimore, Brown is coming into his 5th season in the NFL and looking to make a mark in Seattle. Last season was a little shaky for him, he left the Ravens to play for the Jets for a short stint before heading off to the Jags, but now he is headed our way. In his last season with Baltimore, he played 16 games with a relatively quiet record.  This is one of those Pete Carroll picks that I’m eager to sit back and see what he has in mind for him. Keep your eyes on this guy.

3. Oday Aboushi (OG)

25 years old, 6’5”, 308lbs and working on his 5th season in the league. Oday is exactly what our line is looking for to beef up security for Wilson. I am stoked to see how this guy adds some strength.

4. Michael Wilhoite(LB)

Alright, wipe the foam from your mouths, he may be from San Fransisco, but he’s with the good guys now. He’s another lightly seasoned player that has been putting up good numbers in the past few years. Last year, he racked up 55 tackles, 44 of which were solo, 2 pass defenses and a forced fumble and return. He may not be the shiniest car on the lot, but he’ll certainly get you from A to B. Plus, what’s a little competition to raise the standard of an already savage defense?

 

Moves are being made 12s and from the sight of it, Our boys are playoff bound once again and may yet make it to the big show for a 3rd time under Carroll’s direction. Can’t wait until the draft! As always, if I’ve missed something, let me know so I can do some research and get back to you. With that…Mike Hawk is OUT
