sad news : Seattle Seahawks lose more fans as they were not able to

The Seattle Seahawks traded for former Washington Commanders quarterback Sam Howell last Thursday. Seattle has not only seldom drafted quarterbacks, it has seldom traded for quarterbacks under John Schneider.

It remains to be seen what the Seahawks will do in this year’s NFL Draft, but perhaps previous trades can give us a hint as to what the Howell trade means for Seattle’s quarterback approach for 2024. Let’s take a look at the history of Schneider’s trades, along with an honorable mention to free agent acquisition Matt Flynn.

The Seahawks’ quarterback situation at the time of the trade: Matt Hasselbeck was entering the final year of his contract following two injury-riddled, very ineffective seasons. Seneca Wallace was traded to the Cleveland Browns, so Hasselbeck and Mike Teel were the only QBs under contract.

Draft capital given up: Seattle traded its second-round pick and a 2011 third-round pick to the San Diego Chargers for Whitehurst and the Chargers’ 2010 second-rounder (used on Golden Tate).

When you see something like this available,” Schneider said, “you have to take your shot.”

Schneider said the Seahawks ”would consider Charlie part of our draft class,” but he didn’t rule out drafting another quarterback this year. The Seahawks hold two first-round selections, the sixth and 14th.
