Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expressed his admiration for offensive tackle Brandon Shell this season in his Wednesday press conference.
Shell, an impending free agent, has been a standout on the Seahawks offensive line this year and Carroll stated that he hopes the fifth-year veteran can stay in the Emerald City for the long-term future.
“He’s been really steady,” Carroll said. “Strong in the run game, in the pass game, assignment sound, accountable. He’s real quiet. He’s really quiet, doesn’t say a word. He’s in on everything, cares about everything. I love that acquisition. I think he’s so steady and he’s going to really – I hope he can be around for a long time with us.”
The Seahawks are projected to have $15,968,752 in cap space for the 2021 season per Overthecap.com and have numerous impending free agents, including Chris Carson, KJ Wright, Jacob Hollister, and Shell. The Seahawks certainly cannot keep all of them, so they will have some big decisions to make this offseason.
