Seahawks now meet with the other free agent I said they should meet with
Pardon me for making a bonus just to show off, but am I just too damn good at this thing or what? Weeks before free agency, when there couldn’t have been any buzz on anything happen, especially with the Seahawks, I only laid out two names who I thought they should, could, and WOULD meet with in free agency:
RB Leonard Fournette
DL Aldon Smith
Early in free agency, they met with Fournette, who eventually decided to re-sign with the Buccaneers for less money.
On Wednesday, it was announced that Seattle is meeting with Smith.
Pete Carroll has only ever talked to like six free agents ever. The Seahawks barely discuss signing any outsiders and this year I can’t recall them talking to very many people other than the ones who they’ve signed, like Ahkello Witherspoon and Al Woods and you woulda had to be Al Woods, Sr or Al Woods, Jr to know that Al Woods was going to return to the NFL this year.
I only picked two free agents. And the Seahawks have now met with both of them. I have zero insiders. I offer you no scoops. But tell me when I’ve been more wrong than the people who do.
