Any chance Britt Re-Signs?
Mon May 04, 2020 1:16 pm
  • I know sometimes players can be fairly salty about being cut, but we have seen some players come back on cheaper deals. Not sure if he will have that much of a market either, with COVID slowing down the health checks and such. I would be down for having him back, even if just in the name of consistency along the O-line.

  • I think they cleared that cap room for either DT or Clowney and are simply waiting it out. Britt will probably move on.

  • I sure hope we can resign him. He is a beast when healthy!
    I doubt it will happen.

  • I'd feel a lot better about our O Line if we could get Britt back healthy and cheap, but not at the expense of missing out on Clowney, period, and/or Griff for our D.

  • I don't think Clowney comes back. He isn't worth
    that amount of money.
    Because of my hopes for the d line:

    De-taylor and robinson
    De-green, collier, Naz jones even though he was waived
    Dt-reed, Ford,money, christmas, naz jones

    3rd down de-griffin, Irvin rotate
    3rd down dt-reed, naz jones, green or collier.

    Having Clowney would be a waste of someone elses coming into the league. We dont need him. Or everson Griffin for that matter. I would like to see some of these players we drafted or took a chance on become something like clark or jacob Martin, who we should have kept.

    How I think o line should pan out for what I have seen of our previous o line play:

    Lt-brown, shell or jones
    Lg- Haynes
    C -Lewis, hunt or pocic
    Rg-jones, Simmons
    Rt-shell, Lewis or jones

    I liked Haynes, jones and Simmons at either guard spots. They all played well. I think Lewis has the feet to play RT. It stuck out to me at the combine.
    I know he has experience at guard and center though. Only way pocic makes the team is beating out someone at center. Otherwise bye. Finney may be there also, but I'm wondering why they resigned hunt? I thought he was ok at best. Often got pushed around to easy. If britt comes back-please put Lewis at rt. From what I saw last year...Haynes, jones and Simmons can hold their own.

    Certainly possible. Justin Britt must first complete his rehab in order to pass a contract mandated physical. John Schneider appears to appreciate flexibility in all it's many forms .......................

    I'm not seeing this. Finney is a proven center and Hunt is a capable backup that got valuable exp. Lewis is Fluker, but young, Brown is a rock at LT. Iupati?...I want competition to make this choice. RT?...How can we not improve after the Ifedi experiment. He couldn't get more than a vet minimum contract and was a first rounder. He stunk.

  • I'm thinking a Mike Solari line is less than an ideal fit for Joey Hunt. Joey will now be at liberty to search for his best fit.

    Justin still has to work his way back and chose a team.

    I am also looking forward to seeing Solari's interior line rebuild. It's a very interesting group.

  • Everybody who is still harping on "this O-line stinks, PC/JS are doing nothing for it, all is lost, waaaa!" haven't been paying attention to Seahawks football over the last 9 years. Solari is doing a yeoman's job overhauling what that idiot rhymes-with-unable did to it. That jackwad started out with a serviceable line and slowly changed it into the vision of what he thought an O-line should be - slow, injury-prone, with no skills and no experience, and terrible coaching. He took it straight into the $h!t, and anybody but overly-loyal PC would have fired his butt after that failed experiment was half over. Now that Solari is here and doing his thing, PC/JS are doing the same thing with the O-line that they did with the entire team for the first two years - extreme roster churn, total personnel turnover, trying one of everyone and seeing who sticks. I don't see how our O-line can be anything but WAY WAY better this year, if only by getting rid of the false-starting/holding/still can't be effective Ifiedi. With last year's somewhat-repaired O-line we had a top 10 offense, we should take a significant step up this year I think.

    You look at who is gone, Britt, Hunt. Roos, all three were our Centers last year, Pocic it appears was a outside looking in guy at the position, although he played the position when we drafted him.

    We all remember the failed experiments till Britt took over in trying to replace Unger and the amount of remotes broken and TV replacements due to rolling snaps and overhead snaps and missing assignments.

    I love Naz Jones. I wonder if his health has dropped off, or if he's lost interest in the game? He's an athletic beast, and next to Poona could really help that DLine.

    The big difference between the Drew Nowak/Damien Lewis competition in 2015 and the Finney/Pocic competition this year is that Nowak and Lewis were undrafted raw prospects with minimal NFL experience.

    In contrast, Finney was the 3rd ranked center of his draft class while Pocic was the 2nd ranked center the following year. Both of them have had lots of experience as backups since joining the league but haven't had much of a shot at center due to sitting behind established starters.

    Doesn't matter at this point, it will be all new all over again, we will have a learning curve, less so with Pocic, but he sure should have added muscle to that frame or he is going to be a revolving door.

Iupati?...I want competition to make this choice. RT?...How can we not improve after the Ifedi experiment. He couldn't get more than a vet minimum contract and was a first rounder. He stunk.

    So, let me ask you -- where have we improved? The line was already marginal at best last season. To suddenly think this unit is going to play better is just being blind to the facts.

    First off, our LT is one of the oldest starting left tackles in the NFL. Right now he's at the stage where he could realistically start declining and slowing down. There is no heir apparent here. He's also liable to become more injury prone as the years saunter on. Brown is a wildcard, this could be the year he declines, or things could be business as usual. Iupati is washed up and injury prone, behind him are a bunch of nobodies. Our center position was drastically downgraded with BJ Finney and Pocic. Finney is a career backup that looked underwhelming when put into duty in Pittsburgh, and Pocic looked like hot garbage here. Both are clear downgrades from Britt who knows the system and was a capable center. There is going to be a learning curve for BJ Finney as well as a downgrade skill wise. Chance Warmack is similar to DJ Fluker, but unlike Fluker he doesn't know the system. Warmack also has a long history of being unable to stay healthy. Our RT, Shell is a lateral move from Ifedi. Both of them were bad last season, and both of them struggled with penalties, this guy less so than Ifedi.

    Most of our lineman aren't starters on many teams. We've had lateral moves at two positions, but due to age, and injury considerations, and the subtraction of Britt this unit is not likely to be very good. If you think the offensive line is going to be anything than a liability this year you'd be fooling yourself.

    That's a pessimistic take, which is understandable given our OL struggles over the last couple of years. It just doesn't tell the full story.

    LT: Brown was excellent last year at age 34, giving up just one sack despite a tough schedule against some very good defensive lines. Even if he does slow down, he should still easily be in the upper half of LTs in the NFL. He has also been very durable over his career and I doubt his injury risk at age 35 is any higher than that of the average LT around the league. Jones may not be the same caliber, but that's a high bar to set for a backup T and if Jones needs to play and can stay healthy he'll likely be serviceable.

    LG: Iupati was above average last year (25th OG via PFF), a major factor in the running game, and had the 2nd most snaps (over 1000) on the OL behind only Ifedi. He has only ever missed more than the half of the snaps in a season once (2017 Arizona). Simmons looked good in a small sample size until he got hurt, and is now healthy again.

    C: Britt played less than half the season so Hunt is the better comparison, or at the least a Britt/Hunt combo. Finney looked best at center in Pittsburgh and we haven't seen Pocic at center yet here. Britt himself was hot garbage as a guard, so if you want to compare him to Finney/Pocic's play at guard then that's a better comparison as well. Leverage is much less of an issue at center and being lanky is actually an asset (as the other linemen can gain an extra inch or two on the snap). I think it's highly likely we get better center play this year than last year.

    RG: Lewis was the second guard off the board (if you count Hunt as a G) because we thought he was NFL ready. I suspect he will take over the job part of the way into the season, and will immediately be far better in pass protection then Fluker ever was. Like Simmons, Haynes also looked promising in a small sample size, then got hurt, and is now healthy again.

    RT: Ifedi's best offer was a non-guaranteed $1m as a right guard in Chicago where he will be in competition for a job. You may not like Shell, but he had much more interest league wide and you are very much overstating Shell's 5 penalties in 2019 vs. Ifedi's 13 penalties.

    I am quite certain that many here will consider the OL a liability next season regardless of how things go. I don't agree that there is no room for optimism here.

  • Why is no one talking about Jamarco Jones. He got a little experience last year and looked pretty good in his limited opportunities. The question I have about Jones is where do they see his best position. LG? RG? RT? Future LT?

    He struggled filling in LT when Brown got hurt, but redeemed himself playing LG. I think he will fight for LG starting spot.
