Injuries are already showing up and could rob the team of needed talent at a significant area of team weakness:


Now it becomes apparent why these two were available in FA. Suspect the team is looking hard at every other team depth charts to figure who might become available.
The FO has work to do here.

Of course it is early but this situation doesn’t instil a whole lot of confidence I. This position group needs reinforcements.

With the UFL ending soon, I expect our amazing GM to leave no stone unturned

Here's a bit more info on the restructure :



Am certainly interested in this situation and who the team might be targeting to add to the roster at ILB.

Say what?

Donald is a DT not a LB. Besides LA still likely holds AD's rights despite his recent retirement and he'd be unlikely to want to play here anyway.

Seems like the team made a mistake not re-upping Wagner. Perhaps though making a break from him allows the new regime to install their version of D with no prior preconceptions clouding the installation. sadly though none of the supposed starters are able to actively participate in the install b/c of injury.

Roy Wa.
they will heal. we still have the current FA market, then we have the roster cut downs, they will shore it up at least for this season and more then likely target guys next draft or in F.A.

Can't have an all Pro in 22 positions but a ILB that is smart and impactful is a key on most top defenses.

MacDonald spent 7 years as LB coach in Baltimore. They've done well at that position. He knew what he was coming to in Seattle and probably hand picked Baker and Dodson, or at least had a short list. LB is the obvious deficit on either side of the ball. However, that's MMac's bread and butter so we either can have some confidence he knows what he's doing or we should be worried about absolutely everything.
