With the blockbuster trade that sent Wilson to the Broncos, here are three other big Seahawks names that could be one the move this offseason.

The Broncos and Seahawks agreed to the first big trade of the offseason, as Russell Wilson is officially on the move to Denver. This move has been accompanied by a slew of players and draft capital swapping hands between the two parties, and it now seems clear that Seattle is preparing for a rebuild.

They have quite a few big names that could also be moved in order to further the rebuild. Here are four additional Seahawks players that could be dealt away this offseason.

1. Seattle Seahawks could trade RB Chris Carson

I find it hard to believe at this point that Chris Carson will be with the Seahawks in 2022. The veteran signed a modest two-year deal last offseason after a string of successful seasons as the lead back. While he was a good back when on the field, injuries affected him and limited his overall effectiveness. Throw in the fact that running backs aren’t overly valuable and Carson being moved seems likely.

While a trade wouldn’t be monumental, the Seahawks could potentially land a day-three pick for the veteran and as a result, open up some cap space. If no one was willing to trade for the veteran, a release could also occur in order to save cap space. No matter what ultimately happens, it seems unlikely that Carson sticks to this rebuilding roster for the duration of this offseason.
