The 2021 offseason of the NFL has without question been the year of quarterback controversy. From the Aaron Rodgers Saga, to all of the first round draft picks likes Mac Jones, Trey Lance and Justin Fields and whether or not they will be starting over the veterans currently in place on their teams. Assuming Aaron Rodgers does not get traded to Denver, who will be the starter there?
There has also been rumors around the NFL that Seattle Seahawks starting quarterback Russell Wilson has been unhappy and was hopeful of being traded. For now, it seems that Wilson be staying with the team for the 2021 season, but one of his counterparts likely will not.
Alex McGough, currently the 4th string quarterback for Seattle is likely to be on the chopping block very soon. While during preseason games, McGough tends to perform at a high enough level to generate interest from NFL teams to secure at a minimum a practice squad spot. Given the lack of roster spots available in Seattle, it sounds like sooner than later McGough will be cut for his inability to fully grasp the Seahawks playbook. While it may not happen immediately, expect it to happen before the start of the 2021 season.
In other Seattle Seahawks news, former Washington Football Team offensive linemen Morgan Moses has been rumored to be signing with the Seattle Seahawks. While that was initially the case last week, it sounds like the new front runner for Moses is the New York Jets. It makes more sense now than ever for the Jets to sign Moses due to Mekhi Becton’s most recent injury and the Jets’ weak depth on the offensive line. Unless everything seemingly falls apart, expect to see Moses signed by the Jets within the coming weeks. You can see below what Jets head coach Robert Saleh has to say about Moses:
