The Seattle Seahawks decided this past offseason that they had a wide receiving corps that was not exactly up to the standards of the rest of the National Football League. Not even if the watered down NFC West. Seattle went forward and cut Mike Williams, who had been one of their better receivers a couple of seasons ago. That left them with Ben Obomanu and Deon Butler atop the team’s wide receiver depth chart.
Which is actually quite strange, considering that Sidney Rice and Doug Baldwin are still on the roster. I take it we are to assume their health and production are not quite up to par either.
But after taking a look at how that may actually play out this season for either Matt Flynn or Russell Wilson at quarterback, Pete Carroll and the Seahawks decided that Charly Martin as the team’s No. 3 receiver was not exactly going to help Seattle open up a potent offense through the air.
Due to that, the Seahawks went out and signed Braylon Edwards. And then they brought in Terrell Owen...
