    Mingo might not have made the team

    many who cover the Seahawks who have speculated Mingo would not have made the team.

    He has played for four different teams, three in the past three years, and has 10 career sacks. He graded out as decidedly average overall according to Pro Football Focus and slightly above average in pass rush.

    Hope for Martin

    Jacob Martin is a former sixth round pick for the Seahawks. He graded out as decidedly average overall according to Pro Football Focus and slightly above average in pass rush the same as Mingo. He has three sacks last year and 19 hurries.

    Mingo is a bust that keeps hanging onto a job.

    I feel bad for the Martin kid. He might be able to help the team. Brennan Scarlett got an extension, for pete's sake. But, Martin will never live up to this trade. He's never going to be Clowney.

    Tried Denver South, that didn't work. Tried New England South, that didn't work. Now we're on to Cleveland South?

    & you're like, "I ain't got 5 spots on my roster."

    So... who we keeping? Just extended Scarlett & Whitney. Martin & Mingo. That's 4 edge rushers. Can't play them all at the same time.

    ?
    Downright depressing.
    I am trying to see a bright spot in this but there isn't one.
    We need RB, T, and Corner help and we get two linebackers?
    Worst trade I ever saw.

    TBH

    2013 felt better than this year and looked how that turned out.


    How you trade Clowney for these Fvcks?

    Interesting as in who saw this coming? Hope it works out better than how it appears on the surface. So, yep, interesting.

    We lose a top flight run stopper in Clowney and get two guys who Seattle were likely to cut so I am curious as to any possible interest you might see?

    Keep Martin, he can play and is ascending, but not at Clowney's level. NOt sure I see using a 53 spot for Mingo so this is weird. We had a depth issue outside

    And here I thought a deal for Lockett and Penny would have been bad. Now I wish we would have gone that route.

    Can these guys play special teams
    Are they versatile


    Are they offensive lineman miscast on defense

    OB sees what no one else sees
