Tuesday marks the midpoint of June and the start of the slowest news periods of the NFL year. However, even with the slow parts of summer just around the corner, the Seattle Seahawks should have plenty to keep the team in the news as a result of multiple veterans reportedly looking for new contracts.
It is no secret that All Pro safety Jamal Adams is looking for a contract, and while man fans have hoped that the team would use some of its remaining cap space to bring back linebacker K.J. Wright, there is another big name on the roster reportedly looking for a new deal.
The interesting point of consideration when it comes to any contract extension for Duane Brown would be his ability to continue to perform at a high level. Despite injuries that led to four missed games in 2019, Brown has played at an exceptional level in spite of being one of the oldest starting offensive linemen in the entire NFL in recent seasons.
Obviously workload management and being good enough at his job that he doesn’t really need to practice during the season helped during the 2020 season. That said, Brown has been more than content to perform at a level which would make anyone who was concerned about his age and injuries prior to his 2018 contract extension look foolish.
Where Brown falls in terms of priority when it comes time to negotiate a contract extension in relation to Adams or any other member of the team is unknown, but what is known is that his play and toughness have certainly merited his current contract. Now it just becomes a matter of whether his play and toughness will merit yet another contract extension that I can call a bad idea.
