284: Free agent news - Greg Olsen to the Seahawks, Jadeveon Clowney wants a market-setting contract
The first big news of the offseason hit on Tuesday this week as the Seahawks announced that they had agreed to terms with former Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen. While Seattle was in the market for a tight end this offseason considering the problems they had with depth at the position, is paying a 35-year-old the best approach. Brandan and Adam discuss the pros and cons of the situation and why the team could have felt that this was the best move to make.
In the division, we saw what average tackles are going to start making as D.J. Humphries was re-signed by the Arizona Cardinals. That means that Germaine Ifedi is likely to move on. Could George Fant take Ifedi's spot or is Fant set on heading out of town so he can play at the left tackle spot?
Reports of Jadeveon Clowney ran rampant this past week, but as we point out on the show this week, that when you visit the source material behind the story, the thing that sparked the issue is relatively benign. Of course Clowney wants the best deal possible. That's what every player wants in the offseason!
We close out the show this week by talking about the Seattle Dragons and their first win at home. CenturyLink Field has decided they don't want to take cash at the stadium anymore, which earns the Seahawks home field a "do better" call out. Better at life honors go to a Super Bowl champion helping to better the lives of some furry friends and to Adam's daughter for asking something a teenager generally wouldn't ask a parent.
