    Seattle radio guy on 610:

    Mingo is a good special teamer, bad rusher

    Martin is a good rushed but 3rd down specialist because he is light and can't set the edge against the run

    I see some here thinking Mingo and Martin are scrubs. Not true.
    They are not in Clowneys class but certainly not scrubs.

    For the limited snaps Martin had as a rookie, wasn't bad production

    Yeah and who let it get that way? Skirt around the real issue all you want. This is a black eye on this organization and it’s because of OB.

    He’s just trying to justify the ridiculous narrative he’s been pushing for the last couple of weeks.

    What is a scrub? Could you define a scrub as a player who plays in the 4th preseason game?

    Mingo started the 4th preseason game. Martin came off the bench.

    All I said he WANTED to play on a DE tag. That is so correct it was headed to arbitration before the trade stuff started. It was just the couple mil extra but huge for his contract extension negotiations. Comprehension problems?

    Given the large salary cap space, who really gives a f about a couple million to keep your star happy? They wasted all the cap space but can't show any good will to their young and talented player?

    They could've kept him for this season and then traded him next season. They didn't need to give him away for jack ****.

    What have I said about Mingo besides I’m not big on him in another post. Wanted to see what Martin was about. This guy has upside I found out. What if I seem to be in favor of the trade. I’ve seen all the never ending negative **** for weeks now. This trade is layered as to emotion. I’ve always supported Clowney on this board and didn’t want to trade him. But his salary demands are off the chart. Building a roster is a balancing act and without cap space nor the foresight to see who we can or cannot re-sign going forward without attention to it, on that level I am definitely in favor of a trade. There is also a side benefit to not having a disgruntled player on the sidelines for a year. I think the trade was in the range of what teams were willing to offer, probably for the same reasons I just gave. I damn sure didn’t want to GIVE UP a one and two and Clowney. It’s only words now but I am learning the Seahawks biggest need was for an edge rusher and before the trade that organization and fans believed Martin was going to be that guy. Funny but we may have gotten the better edge rusher in this trade but let’s see. That why I just want the season to start. Then there is that little existing knee thing that won’t go away.

    No it was not headed that way. He was not challenging it.

    Again, basic facts

    What does this have to do with your lack of reading comprehension on the original post?

    Martin appears to be a nice asset as a situational pass rusher. Maybe he’ll be able to find 8 sacks this season for us. But run defense is going to take a hit with Clowney gone.

    Many on the Seahawks board thought he was decent with upside and were disappointed to see him go.
    I hope RAC can get the best out of him.
