It feels like the Seattle Seahawks are content with a throwaway kind of season in 2022. With the NFL Draft in the rear view mirror, and zero interest in either Baker Mayfield or Jimmy Garoppolo, Pete Carroll is already looking ahead to 2023.

It really is a shame. Since jettisoning Russell Wilson, the depth chart at quarterback is Geno Smith, Drew Lock, and Jacob Eason. Not exactly a wealth of talent or a long term solution. Still Seattle seems set at the signal caller position.

Carroll, who has spoken with praise about Lock, has also made it clear they won’t be making a trade for anyone: 

“I don’t see us making a trade for anybody at all,” head coach Pete Carroll told reporters on Thursday. “I don’t see that happening.”

He also went on to speak about Lock and offered his praise about the former Denver Broncos quarterback:

“You go back to his first year when he was balling as a rookie, when he was 4-1, his third-down numbers were terrific,” he told reporters. “Taking care of the football really well. For whatever reason… the coordinator left after that time, times changed for him, and he didn’t play to that same level. … We think he’s still that guy [from early in his career] and so we’ll see.”

As much as more talented players like Mayfield or Jimmy G. would bring wins to the Seahawks, the organization will let it ride until next year’s draft when the quarterback position holds more promise than what was available in 2022.

What Seattle does not want is any shot at making the playoffs this season. Especially if it jeopardizes a top five or better draft spot. Until then, the Seattle Seahawks will be a bottom division team, destined for a last place finish in the highly competitive NFC West.
