Leighton Silito of Houston asks, "Will Jadeveon Clowney be a one-year rental?"
A: Maybe, but if he's really productive and helps the Seahawks win games, isn't it still worth it is it worth acquiring it, especially knowing that leaving Clowney is likely to lead to a good compensatory choice in 2021? Because Clowney is in the franchise tag and the franchise player deadline to negotiate expansions has expired, he and the Seahawks are unable to work on a new potential deal until the end of the season. Clowney and Carroll said Monday that their focus is on the now, not what will happen after the season, but knowing that he came to the Seahawks in part because of the culture that was built here, the word he was given. from former Texas teammate Dwyane Brown, it's definitely reasonable to think that a long-term deal can be reached after the season if things go well this year.
Andrew Tackston of Fayetteville, Arkansas asks, "Was there additional clarity on David Moore's injury? Will it immediately slip away with the appetizers once it is cleared?
A: Moore has a non-displaced fracture in his collarbone and until a specific timeline has been given, Carol has said several times. that Moore will be out in the regular season. On Monday, Carol said, "Nothing will change for a while. He had a crack in his shoulder so he just had to wait for him. Feels pretty good. This is the problem with him, it does not interfere with him in any way, there is no shift, so he will feel ready to play in a week, but will not be able to for a while.
As for his role, it probably depends on how Jaron Brown and DC Metcalfe perform until Moore returns. Prior to his injury, Moore was regularly one of Seattle's top three receivers alongside Tyler Lockett and Brown, but if Metcalfe plays very well outside the gate, Moore may have to fight back in the top three with Metcalfe or Brown .
Vince Jacobo of San Diego asks: "Any clarification on the current share of touches between Chris Carson, Rashad Penny and the field? Penny seems to have progressed in the last year?
A: To answer the second question first, yes, Penny definitely seems to have progressed. He is in better shape and looks faster, and with a year under his belt he also understands better the offense and other nuances of the position as a pass-protection.
But Chris Carson also seems to be better than ever, and he will be tough to get fired from his starting job. I think we will see more of Penny this year, but the question is whether this will come at the expense of the touches that Carson received a year ago, or in the form of touches that went to other hinds a year ago ̵
In other words, I really hate to tell you this, Vince, but Carol and Schottenheimer probably don't care much about your fantastic team.
@TheCrappyTotals asks: "I still can't believe they released Austin Calitro. Is there any chance of it being re-signed? @ Chuck024 also asked for a waiver from Kalitro.
And in a related note @ Davehill777 he asks, "Do you think the Seahawks will return DeShawn Shead? "
A: I develop these two issues together, because there are players released at this time of the year who make surprising cuts and / or who are loved by fans who all hate to see.
"It's hard and they know it," Carol said. "They know it's just business and there are some difficult decisions and they know it can happen and all that. It doesn't change the way it hurts, especially when they really want to be a part of it. We want them to be a part of it from him "We needed 60 guys and we couldn't do it. The rules will not allow you. "
In the case of Kalitro, the Seahawks were really deep in the linebacker and when it came to deciding between the players behind Chiefs Bobby Wagner, KJ Wright and Michal Kendricks, one thing to keep in mind is depth in specification In addition to being an excellent special teams player, Shaquem Griffin has undoubtedly helped make the switch he made this year to playing strong leader. this position becomes even more important and being in the pre-season, the Seahawks also have Cody Barton and Ben Burr-Kirven as middle and weak end options.
"These are just numbers and we just couldn't keep it," Carol said. "We wanted to, we love it. , we love the way he played. He had a fantastic preseason for us. It was really difficult. He did everything we wanted from a guy. He is a good ball player, he is a great team … We will miss having him. "
As for his running back, that opportunity dropped out, at least for now, when Calitro was denied a Jacksonville waiver.
Meanwhile, Shade is a player who has just fallen into very deep secondary competition.
When asked if Shade could return, Carol replied: "There's always a chance. He is a fantastic member of the team and I hated being able to keep DeShawn around. He is such a great competitor and flexibility and playmaking and all that. We just couldn't do it. The chance of him coming back is, we'll be glad to have him back if the opportunity arises. “
