Aloha! I've decided to push the post I'm writing about Seattle's offensive linemen draft tendencies to tomorrow's C&C. I wanted to spend a little more time on it, so thank you for bearing with me. Today we continue to look at potential prospects and any other Seahawks/NFL news that is out there. I also want to take a moment and express my sadness upon hearing of former New Orleans Saints Will Smith's untimely passing. Tragedy is sad business, and I'm sure I'm not alone in wishing his wife a complete recovery and the personal strength to survive losing her husband in such a traumatic manner. Stay safe out there Field Gulls, and I hope everyone has a great day!
And now...to the links!
