  • Seahawks Sign Jahri Evans

    Seahawks signed OG Jahri Evans, formerly of the Saints.
    Evans should start at left guard, bookending first-rounder Germain Ifedi. The four-time All Pro adds a veteran presence, but is coming off an injury-plagued 2015. Evans has potential to rebound under OL coach Tom Cable. Despite his signing, Seattle's offensive line still has major concerns going into the season. Aug 6 - 4:13 PM

    i thought this was a relevant story to post because the Dolphins play the Seahawks in week one and they didn't bother going after a GUARD who was sitting there in free agency for the taking. Some will say we have Tunsil or Albert but they are both tackles, not guards, being forced to play out of position. It would be nice to see one coaching staff address the guard position with GUARDS.

    He's been out there for months; i advocated giving him a look when he first became available...That being said, he as was pointed out, had an injury plagued season last year..I'm not sure if that would make us a bit hypocritical, claiming the Fins never learn and continue to ALWAYS sign injured players, yet get pissed when they pass on one...

      I wouldn't have complained, I would have been shocked. Two positions they don't touch, guards and fullback.

      Seahawks have the most comprehensive PED program in the NFL. They'll have Jahri juicing with the best of em in no time. ;-)

    Somehow our Guards must give the impression " fools Gold" cause all the coaches fall for it and are good to go. Until the season.
    The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

      yeah, the force is strong within them..They wave their hands over all the competent guards available in FA & the draft & say 'Those aren't the guards you're looking for'

        The only thing that gives me hope for the season opener in Seattle is that the Seahawks o-line might be worse than ours. So our D-line which has been dominant in training camp better show up and wreak some havoc in Seattle if we are going to have a chance to win that game. The downside though is that even if our D-line dominates, Russell Wilson could still kill us with his scrambling ability. So we will also have to contain him.

          Its been disappointing that Tunsil can't beat out Thomas as the starting LG which means he doesn't have much in the way of position versatility and he is probably only going to play at LT which means all we are going to get from our first round pick is depth at LT as a rookie. It looks like we will have the same starting OG's as last year, Thomas and Turner. Corner is another position we have failed to adequately address.

            Any comments out of camp about possibly trying Albert out at guard and putting Tunsil in at LT?

          I will be shocked if Tunsil doesn't win the LG battle. I'm disappointed that Jamil Douglas doesn't even seem to be in any conversations at all, especially after beating out both Turner and Thomas for both their positions leading up to the 2015 season. I'll be both shocked and disappointed if our defensive front line doesn't knock the snot out of Seattle's offensive front.
