Which major Seahawks name will be gone by 2018?

Turnover happens.

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks
there’s a reason only insane people play football

Turnover on the Seattle Seahawks roster since 43-8 has been high. A mile high, you might even say. By the end of 2016, most of the men who discombobulated the Denver Broncos were out of the NFL or on other teams.

46 Seahawks appeared in XLVIII. In the season-ending playoff loss to the Atlanta Falcons three years later, only 16 of the same men were active.

Thirty of them vanished.

However, big-time star turnover remained low. Sure, Golden Tate got more money from Detroit; Russell Okung talked the Broncos into a weird deal with lots of dollars attached; Byron Maxwell hit the Philadelphia Powerball; Bruce Irvin is in Oakland making coin with other assorted Seahawks, some of whom took a more circuitous route to get there. But those four are the biggest names who’ve departed in the last three years specifically for greener pastures.

Certain guys retired too. For some, the retirement took. Good luck outside of football, Percy Harvin. For others, retirement was a little more temporary. See an earlier Daily Gulls Poll for confirmation. (Good luck back inside of football, Marshawn Lynch. You’ll probably need it too.)

If you had to find roster-related themes for 2016-2017-2018 other than injuries and perceived locker room discord, four of the main ones are:

  • What’s the LOB’s staying power?
  • Who’s getting the next extension?
  • Who’s going to surprise us with an “early” retirement?
  • What about Jermaine Kearse’s future?

With that many questions going live, seems inevitable that one of the team’s mainstays is bound to leave before the 2018 season. But who?


Which current Seahawk is the most likely to be on another team’s roster for Week 1 of the 2018 season?

No, not which Seahawks do you want to see go — which one’s the most likely to be gone. Play fair.
