It’s been an interesting start to the offseason for the Seattle Seahawks, with the drama surrounding quarterback Russell Wilson and his reported displeasure with the offense and his role within the team. In particular, Wilson has very publicly lobbied the team to add superstars, and Wednesday saw the Hawks take a step in the right direction with the addition of guard Gabe Jackson from the Las Vegas Raiders and tight end Gerald Everett from the Los Angeles Rams.
The good news continued for Wilson on Thursday as the team made sure to keep one of their own Pro Bowl offensive weapons.
Pro Bowl FB Nick Bellore will be staying put and re-signing with Seattle, per source.— Mike Renner (@PFF_Mike) March 18, 2021
HUGE get for the Seahawks in their pursuit to appease franchise QB Russell Wilson
Fullback Nick Bellore, who started his NFL career as a linebacker and evolved into a key member of the Seahawks special teams, will be back with Seattle in 2021 according to the report. While technically a Pro Bowl fullback, Bellore has played just 64 offensive snaps in his two seasons with Seattle while seeing the field for 560 special teams snaps.
With the improvement of the Seattle special teams in 2021, bringing back one of the key members of the group makes a lot of sense, and hopefully the improvement continues into 2021 as well.
