We know how amazing and talented this team is. We also know when contracts expire in the next 2-3 years that the Seahawks are going to be faced with some ridiculously painful decisions on who to keep and who to let walk. Unless the NFL suddenly does away with the salary cap (not gonna happen), there's simply no way possible to re-sign all of our free agents to the contracts that each will have earned. I'm not going to list all the names, but you know guys: Wilson, Bennett, ET3, Okung, RS, Maxwell, GT, ADB, our LB's, etc.
But what if there was a way to sign all of our young stars to long term deals while staying under the cap? Impossible, right? Well, what if...(enter pipe-dream hypothetical scenario):
Given Paul Allen's ridiculous amounts of money, arrangements are made for each of our FA stars to land some lucrative endorsement deals, contingent upon signing a cap-friendly, long-term extension with the team. Of course this is all under the table, with mafia-style negotiations where nothing is actually stated but rather implied (that way they could deny ever having set something like this up), and the details could be worked out through the company offering the endorsements, with no actual ties to P. Allen and co. The endorsement money would be guaranteed and would be higher than what normally would've be gained.
Okay, so there's obviously no legit company that would partake in this scheme, well at least with Enron going out of business, but perhaps a new, hip fashion company selling athletic sports wear, and based out of Seattle, starts up and all our guys are hired as models. Bennett could do his sexy dance while modeling some clothes...you get the idea.I know this would never happen, but, seriously, it could work, amiright? Anyone else have any ideas (fantasies) as to how we keep this team together? If so, I'd love to hear them because it's going to fucking suck when this team breaks apart!!!
And my apologies in advance for whatever I screw up. My first fanpost so be easy now!
