The Seattle Seahawks had time to celebrate their victory over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII, but now they have to solve some problems.
Hours after they won at MetLife Stadium, oddsmakers put Seattle as the favorite to win the 2014 title. The Seahawks opened at 9/2, followed by the San Francisco 49ers (15/2) and the Broncos (8/1). At SportsBettingDime.com you could find the complete list.
Of the 53 players who won the Lombardi Trophy for the first time in franchise history, 18 will become free agents so there will be some important players who will not be around for the next season.
In addition, Seattle has a long list of players with expiring contracts and almost no salary cap room to resign them. Pete Carroll ‘s team will only have 8.7 million to make some moves.
The Seahawks finished last season as the best pass defense and with the most interceptions (28), but to remain at that level they will have to work hard because they might lose cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond.
On offense, they are expected to cut the receiver Sidney Rice, who only has 15 passes for 231 yards and three touchdowns due to injuries. Meanwhile, Golden Tate said that he is willing to make less money to stay in the team.
The former Notre Dame wide receiver, 25, was the leader of the team in receptions (64) and yards (898) and scored five touchdowns last season. It was also the best kick returner of the Seahawks averaging 11.5 yards per return.
Kicker Steven Hauschka’s must be a priority for Seattle. He was one of the best in the league hitting 33 of 35 field goals, including one from 53 yards in the regular season; plus, in the playoffs he was perfect on his eight attempts.
The problems for the Seahawks will not end there because next season they will have to negotiate new contracts with cornerback Richard Sherman, safety Earl Thomas and quarterback Russell Wilson. Keeping the three players will cost them between 30 and 40 million.
