The offseason is underway for the Seattle Seahawks, and while there are plenty of decisions that will need to be made regarding the roster in the coming months, there’s also still plenty of awards being handed out for the 2022 NFL season. Wednesday the finalists for several of the Associated Press awards were named, and there is no shortage of Seahawks who will be under consideration for the awards.
To get right to the awards about which Seattle fans are most interested, it is obviously offensive and rookie of the year, and Tariq Woolen and Ken Walker both made the list of finalists on their side of the ball.
