The Seahawks did a far better job than Miami in courting Green Bay quarterback Matt Flynn, who will now compete with Tarvaris Jackson for a starting spot. The re-signing of running back Marshawn Lynch and defensive end Red Bryant insured Seattle will keep two of its best players. Significant losses:
The Seahawks were unable to retain linebacker David Hawthorne, who is now with New Orleans after three straight 100-tackle seasons in Seattle. Barrett Ruud (Tennessee) was signed as a lower-priced replacement. Top draft need:
A wide receiver who can stretch the field. Sidney Rice's injury problems continued since he was signed away from Minnesota in 2011 and Mike Williams slumped horribly last year after a 65-catch season in 2010. A prospect like Notre Dame's Michael Floyd, if still available, would fit the bill with the No. 12 overall pick. Analysis:
The Seahawks must hope they've made a better talent evalutation with Flynn than Jackson and Charlie Whitehurst. Both were backups from other teams that failed to cement themselves as starters when given the chance in Seattle. Grade:
