Seahawks Re-Sign Quarterback

The Seattle Seahawks are at least keeping one of their quarterbacks from the 2021 season, as they have re-signed Geno Smith to a one-year contract. He can make a maximum of $7 million for the 2022 campaign. 

Smith served as the Seahawks' backup last season and when called upon, he performed fairly well. Although he had a 1-2 record during the games he started, he also had an impressive five touchdowns, 702 yards, and only one interception. These numbers are solid from a backup, so it makes sense that they are giving him another shot for this upcoming campaign.

With the Seahawks trading Russell Wilson earlier this offseason, there's reason to believe that Smith will be in the running for the starting job. Seattle still has time to find themselves a proven starter, but if they do not, let's see if Smith can land himself the role. 

In 45 games between the New York Jets, New York Giants, Los Angeles Chargers, and Seahawks, Smith has thrown 34 touchdowns, 37 interceptions, and 6,917 yards. It will be interesting to see how these numbers change after next season is completed.
