The Seattle Seahawks traded franchise quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos during the offseason, which has led to a lot of speculation about who they plan to replace him with. They acquired Drew Lock in the trade with Denver and also have Geno Smith on their roaster. How does this impact Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl LVII odds? Find out next.
With players like Baker Mayfield and Jimmy Garoppolo on the trading block, a lot of people are expecting the Seahawks to try to get one of the veteran quarterbacks. But, head coach Pete Carroll told reporters on Thursday that he doesn’t “at all” envision the team trading for a quarterback.
“We’re always competing,” Carroll said, giving one of his stock responses to such questions. “I’m not saying anything you didn’t think I was going to say, but fortunately that’s always been the way we’ve operated, and it fits again. So we’re looking. I don’t see us making a trade for anybody at all. I don’t see that happening. But we’re certainly going to continue to be open to chances to help our club, and meanwhile we’re just going to be battling and competing our tails off. There’s always possibilities, so we keep open to that.”

During an appearance on the “Ya Never Know” podcast last month, Mayfield guessed that Seattle would “probably” be his most likely landing spot.
After saying he doesn’t see the team trading for a quarterback, Carroll was asked about picking one up in free agency.
“There’s no chance I’m going to tell you anything more than what I just told you, but I love you for trying,” Carroll said, laughing. “Honestly, we’re going to keep looking and seeing what’s available, but only to help our club and try to make us better. If the case presents itself, we’re going to be ready for it.”
