I agree, it would set us back, And let me make this clear, I absolutely love Russ as our QB, he’s been the best QB in our team history by far... When you say no amount of pics will be worth it all depends on whether 1, if Russ still wants to play here, and 2, how many pics you get and what players you might get initially... Obviously we’d need a QB right away.... He’s most likely not going anywhere, but if there is any indication he doesn’t want to be here anymore, Seahawks would be smart to move on it, because he’s a hot item that teams would give a fortune for ... We wait and he’s not happy down the road we won’t get any return ...
Well it makes sense that he's worth more now then later, but think it's a lot harder to get the return fans envision. The Stafford trade seems more of a fluke to me. You can bet the Texans have been receiving offers for Watson and have yet to see one that makes football sense based on the money they have to eat ( Seahawks also would have to swallow a huge amount) the cap hit ( same for Seahawks) and the fact he's their MVP ( same as the Seahawks). Course fans think it should be easy to get 3 1st round picks plus plus for a player of that caliber, but most teams feel that's plum out of their price range. Fantasty meets reality kind of thing.
