Seahawks tackle Stone Forsythe playing 'the best he's been' - The Seattle Times
For Seattle Seahawks tackle Stone Forsythe, 2023 has been a year of unexpected opportunity. Coming into this season, Forsythe expected to play the same depth role that he did last year, where he made just one start for the Seahawks while backing up starting rookie tackles Charles Cross and Abe Lucas. This year, with both Cross and Lucas missing time due to injury, Forsythe has had to step up in a big way. Forsythe has made four starts through the first six games of the season, seeing time at both left tackle and right tackle, and has done well enough to earn a vote of confidence from head coach Pete Carroll.
