Fans of the Seattle Seahawks have spent the past couple of months wondering what the team would do in terms of the offensive line come free agency, and how the holes would be addressed. At left guard Mike Iupati performed admirably and stayed healthy for most of the season, until a neck injury forced him to miss both playoff games. At right tackle, the team has already seen swing tackle George Fant sign with the New York Jets, while 2016 first round pick Germain Ifedi appears to still be searching for a new home. Add in that every center on the roster, including Justin Britt, Joey Hunt and Ethan Pocic finished the season injured, and there are questions at basically every position on the line.
That led to dreams of Jack Conklin, Bryan Bulaga, Brandon Scherff or Joe Thuney, which the Seahawks dashed on Tuesday evening by signing B.J. Finney. Finney is likely a player most fans have never heard of, even after having started 13 games and logging 1,023 offensive snaps for the Pittsburgh Steelers in recent years.
I haven’t had time to sit down and watch any film of Finney yet, so without comment, here are some clips of him during his time with the Steelers presented without comment as to his skill or abilities. Enjoy.
