What's Uuuuuuup 12s!

 

BIG news just broke about the Seahawks! We have come to terms and signed an extension for Duane Brown on a 3 year $36.5 million contract! 

 

Most of you will remember we picked up Brown last season in a trade that was supposed to be for Jeremy Lane and a few draft picks, but Lane failed his physical, but with some maneuvering, and the loss of a couple good picks, the Seahawks and the Texans came to an agreement and we got this behemoth of a tackle! The man was the key that we needed to bolster a failing offensive line and even made it to the pro-bowl that year.

I know that's quite a chunk of change that was dropped, but I'm glad the boys upstairs finally laid down some dough for the offensive line. Him, partnered with Fant, who was sporting a knee brace during training camp, should be the combo that we need to have an impenetrable offensive line! Watch the run game this year kids, you're going to see a lot more opened holes, and even some more time for Wilson in the pocket to hopefully make some decent passes.

Some are looking toward Earl Thomas after this deal was struck. Some with hope, some with bitterness, but I would suggest that we all put Earl on the back burner for now. He's got another year on his contract, and if he's smart, he'll show us how much of an extension he deserves. This is a win for our boys 12s. Stay strong! Preseason starts NEXT WEEK! Get those jerseys out and fly those flags my friends! With that....Mike Hawk is OUT!
