Which Player Would You Take From the Seahawks?
Last week, Denzel Ward topped our list of players we would steal from the Cleveland Browns. This week, we have a star-studded lineup of players to choose from with Philadelphia's next opponent -- the Seattle Seahawks. The rules are simple here: contracts don't matter and it's JUST to help the Eagles for one game.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Seahawks have star players at nearly every position. While it hasn't led to the best stats for the group, the talent is there nonetheless. Linebacker Bobby Wagner would be a great choice to add some name power to our linebacking core. He leads the Seahawks in tackles, with 56, and is always capable of a big hit to set the tone for their team. Safety Jamal Adams leads the team in sacks despite missing significant time due to an injury.
On offense, it would be pretty simple to take quarterback Russell Wilson. With the current performance from Carson Wentz, this would be a no brainer, but I'll pass this week due to the Seahawks being the 32nd rated passing defense in the league. Tyler Lockett is second on the team in receiving and plays a major role in the deep passing game for the Seahawks. Lockett still isn't the number one choice. Let's get to the name that's really going to sting.
This one hurts the most because this player COULD have been playing for us since his first day in the league. That player is D.K. Metcalf. I'll be the first to admit that I was not sold on him during the draft process in 2018. Every week Eagles fans get to hear about this guy putting up insane catches and numbers. This would be a double steal. We wouldn't have him tearing us up like last season, and he would be a significant upgrade as our number one receiving threat.
Sound off below. Who would YOU take from the Seattle Seahawks in our upcoming matchup?
