Russell Wilson had a strong season in 2013 and helped lead his team to a Super bowl win. While we may not be clairvoyant, it’s pretty reasonable to expect that Wilson will be starting behind center for the world champions next season.
Doesn’t that feel good to read? World champions. Read it again slower. W-O-R-L-D – C-H-A-M-P-I-O-N-S.
Anyway, the world champsions are all set at QB1, but who will be Mr. Wilson’s backup in 2014? Tavaris Jackson only played in garbage time situations this season, completing 10 of 13 passes for 151 yards. Jackson is a decently mobile back and he fits the Seahawks system well as long as he isn’t asked to do too much. However, he will be 30 years old by training camp and his contract is up in March. It may be cheaper to bring in a rookie play-caller to be Wilson’s backup.
While the Seahawks are unlikely to get a top prospect like Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, there are alot of talented quarterbacks coming out of the 2014 draft class. Here’s a list of the top ten.
Is the 2013 Seahawks defense the best ever?
