  • I would leave Britt where he is and take a flier on Okung before signing him.

    :ditto: Britt was our best lineman last year. Crappy way to reward his work. :34853_doh:

    Britt did an admirable job at center. I agree. However, the Seahawks lack decent players at the tackle spots. Mangold is an All-Pro center. Britt would be an instant upgrade over the current players at tackle. Plus LT is generally paid higher than centers. Not saying it would happen, but if the Seahawks chose that route it wouldn't be all that odd either. Since when have the Seahawks shown any loyalty to Olineman? They shift them all the time.

  • IIRC, Britt started on the outside. Moving him to center was almost a desperation move, because he was on his way out before that. He's good, he's young, he's durable.

  • I think Britt is (is going to be) a stud at Center. The one position I don't think we need to address on the OL lol
