Missing the playoffs could equal
personnel changes for Seahawks
By TIM BOOTH
RENTON, Wash. — Pete Carroll
knows after eight seasons in charge of
the Seattle Seahawks that his message
always needs to evolve.
Much like Carroll’s messaging,
the Seahawks’ roster could see some
major changes going into next season
after missing the playoffs for the first
time since 2011.
“We all have to keep changing and
growing together. That’s why I always
come back to compete, you know,”
Carroll said. “Keep competing to find
a way to make sense and help a guy
and pushing him to have success. Then
we will do what we can do. Sometimes
we do it better than others. Sometimes
we shock the heck out of this, with all
kinds of things that happen.”
There’s no denying Seattle’s core
group is getting older, which coupled
with salary cap concerns could lead to
major overhauls at some positions.
Here are some positions to watch in
JIMMY EFFECT: Despite catch-
ing 10 touchdown passes and finally
becoming the red-zone threat Seattle
hoped for, don’t expect Jimmy Gra-
ham to be back. It’s likely Graham’s
last chance at a big contract and Seat-
tle appears to have more pressing
needs. The tight end position remains
an important piece of Seattle’s offense,
but both Graham and Luke Willson
are free agents. Willson spoke hope-
fully of returning to the only team
he’s played for. Seattle would be smart
to get a tight end who is a premier
blocker with pass-catching skills, sim-
ilar to Zach Miller. But that’s easier
said than found.
ON THE LINE: Michael Bennett
was bluntly honest at the conclusion
of the season that the NFL is a “young
man’s game,” and at age 32 he may be
Even if Bennett does return, Seat-
tle’s likely to see an overhaul along
the defensive line. Cliff Avril appears
to be leaning toward retirement. Shel-
don Richardson played well in his one
year with the Seahawks but is now a
The Seahawks have a decent foun-
dation to build around with Frank
Clark, Quinton Jefferson, Nazair Jones
and Jarran Reed. They should bring
back Dion Jordan after the former
first-round pick’s performance once he
became healthy. Bennett could return,
but if so should take on less of a load.
Despite playing with a foot injury the
second half of the year, Bennett still
played 84.7 percent of the snaps this
OFFENSIVE SKILL: Seattle has
high hopes next season for the running
back duo of Chris Carson and Mike
Davis. Still, expect the Seahawks to
add another ball carrier to the mix and
move on from Eddie Lacy and Thomas
Rawls. At wide receiver, there is a big
decision to be made with Paul Rich-
ardson, who will be an unrestricted
free agent. Richardson finished with
44 receptions and flourished early in
the season, but faded late with just
nine receptions in the final five games.
Seattle’s offensive line woes have
been an issue for three straight sea-
sons. Youth, injuries, inconsistency
have combined to make the Seahawks
line a constant problem and brought
plenty of criticism for offensive line
coach Tom Cable.
But don’t expect massive changes.
Part of the beauty of the deal for
Duane Brown was having him under
contract through 2018. Seattle imme-
diately started playing better once

ALAMEDA, Calif. — If Jon
Gruden does leave the comforts of
the broadcast booth for a second
stint as coach of the Oakland Raid-
ers, he wouldn’t be the first coach
lured back to the sidelines after a
long hiatus from the profession.
Several other coaches have
attempted the move, with the most
successful being Dick Vermeil,
who spent 14 years broadcasting
between his burnout and second
act that began in St. Louis and led
to a Super Bowl title for the Rams.
Others had more problems
in their return, most notably Art
Shell. The Hall of Fame offensive
lineman was fired by the Raiders
following the 1994 season despite
a 54-38 record and three play-
off berths in his five full seasons.
More than a decade later, Shell’s
second stint with the franchise
lasted one year and led to just two
Gruden could be the latest coach
to follow this path. He was fired by
Tampa Bay following the 2008
season and has spent the past nine
years as an announcer at ESPN.
