Due to their similar stature https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/hats , comparisons between No. 1 overall pick Kyler Murray and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson were inevitable.Both quarterbacks are comfortably under six feet tall and meld their combination of athleticism and passing prowess to lead their teams effectively. While Wilson has proven to be capable of doing so at the NFL level, Murray hasn’t had the opportunity yet. However, at least one player familiar with both Wilson and Murray believes the comparisons are justified.Arizona Cardinals guard J.R. Sweezy has spent many years as a teammate of Wilson’s with the Seahawks and at North Carolina State. He spent five years over two stints blocking for Wilson in Seattle before signing with Arizona in free agency in March. According to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com, Sweezy finds the comparisons between Wilson and Murray to be apt.“I see hundreds of similarities,” Sweezy said. “I always say, we got to see this guy really play. I think he’s going to be just fine. But just to even be compared to Russell Wilson is a huge compliment.“He’s going to back it up. I just love that he’s getting compared to him already and everything. He’s going to be great.”Murray and Wilson were both drafted by Major League Baseball teams and have become highly skilled quarterbacks capable of throwing from inside the pocket and on the move. Murray’s production at Oklahoma led to him being the top pick in this spring’s NFL Draft, but now he has to show he can translate his game to the pro ranks as Wilson and Baker Mayfield have done previously.Sweezy has liked what he’s seen from Murray throughout their offseason work together in the desert.“He’s cool, calm, collected, smooth,” Sweezy said. “Make a mistake, come back, correct it. He’s on it, honestly.” For obvious reasons, the Seattle Seahawks were spending the most money in the NFL at the safety position in 2018 Seattle Seahawks Hoodie , though Earl Thomas only played in four games and Kam Chancellor missed all of his..." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteField Gullsa Seattle Seahawks communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsSeahawksOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections VideosCoffee and CigarettesGame AnalysisThe Numbers GameCigar ThoughtsSeahawks spending least amount in NFL on cornerbacksNew,33commentsPDTShareTweetShareShareSeahawks spending least amount in NFL on cornerbacksJoe Nicholson-USA TODAY SportsFor obvious reasons, the Seattle Seahawks were spending the most money in the NFL at the safety position in 2018, though Earl Thomas only played in four games and Kam Chancellor missed all of his final NFL season. As expected, the Seahawks saw a dip in that spending in 2019 thanks to Earl leaving to sign with the Baltimore Ravens and Kam taking his final vacation — though his $10 million in dead money and Bradley McDougald’s $4.7 million cap hit still puts Seattle in 16th place for safety spending.However, what is most surprising is that a year after releasing Richard Sherman and months after deciding to not re-sign Justin Coleman, the Seahawks aren’t just being frugal at cornerback, they’re downright treating it like the new offensive line; Seattle’s $5.7 million spent on all corners at this time ranks 32nd overall and is about $3.3 million less than what 31st-ranked Kansas City is spending on their cornerbacks.That $5.7 million includes $1 million to Neiko Thorpe (still a potential casualty before the season begins), $870,000 to Shaquill Griffin, $656,000 to Ugo Amadi, and $644,000 to Tre Flowers. That could put Seattle’s starting three corners at a total 2019 salary of $2.17 million. $2.17 million is exactly what the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are paying cornerback Ryan Smith, a fourth year pro in the final year of his rookie deal. There are 71 cornerbacks set to make more than $2.17 million next season. There are five individual corners set to make at least 7x that amount. Coleman will make $2.8 million in his first season with the Detroit Lions. The New Orleans Saints Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , who had 12 picks last year, same as Seattle, is set to pay Patrick Robinson $5.3m, Marshon Lattimore $4.1m, Eli Apple $2.5m, PJ Williams $2.2m, and Ken Crawley $2m.That’s $16.1 million on five corners and while certainly a player like Lattimore is gifted and you could argue this group is better, is it that much better? Apple and Williams are making more than those three players, Robinson is making the same as every corner on the Seahawks roster, and Crawley is not far behind those other guys in terms of salary.Also, is Seattle’s cornerback group a concern? Sure!We don’t have much in the way of security that any corner on the Seahawks current 90-man roster will be very good. Griffin gave us some positive signs as a rookie and then maybe a few concerns in year two, Flowers also flashed good things in year one and so who knows what we can really expect moving forward? Ugo has never played in the NFL before and the rest — Akeem King, Kalan Reed, Jamar Taylor, Jeremy Boykins http://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Cody-Barton-Jersey , some undrafted free agents — haven’t given us a ton of reason for optimism yet, while Thorpe is just not suited to play cornerback based on what we’ve seen so far.With this much cap space and this many unknowns at corner, it is certainly possible that the team will be looking for options in August and September once preseason gets going and cap casualties start becoming aware that’s what they are. Seattle traded for Coleman two years ago and it helped set them up for cheap success at the position in 2017 and 2018. The less they spend on corner also means the more they have to spend at other positions, including potential extensions for Bobby Wagner and Jarran Reed, as well as dipping into the trade market if need be at receiver, tight end, or defensive end. Or ... cornerback and safety.We’ve seen Pete Carroll and John Schneider go cheap on offensive line for years and then deciding to put a few bucks into Duane Brown. We’ve seen them go all-in at secondary and now we’re seeing the inverse of that. Money spent doesn’t always necessarily = success however and oftentimes, it doesn’t work out nearly the way you expect it to. This just means that for now the Seahawks don’t have a cornerback of note and outside of Sherman, this really doesn’t go against their typical philosophy at corner given that they didn’t re-sign Byron Maxwell, Brandon Browner, or Walter Thurmond.Pete believes he can make the most out of a cheap cornerback, 2019 may be the biggest test of that belief yet.
