Brandon Marshall Trade Reaction From Seahawks Fans: Not Worth The Investment

The Seahawks were the only team to bring in Brandon Marshall for a visit during restricted free agency. Head coach Pete Carroll had expressed some interest at various points throughout the process but, ultimately, they didn't pull the trigger.

So was not trading for Marshall the right move? SB Nation's Field Gulls weighs in:

This is great news for Seahawks fans. We didn't get the pipe dream deal many of us longed for, but we also avoided mortgaging youth and potential for a supposed sure thing. Seattle can now take the resources they would have otherwise invested in Marshall and draft two cheaper players, with two pairs of knees, two affordable contracts, and that can fill two positions of need.

Field Gulls makes some good points in the article. For a team like Seattle that needs help at just about every major cornerstone on the team, second round picks are gold. Two second round picks are much more affordable than a first round pick and gives the team a shot at improving multiple positions.

Here's a good comment that sums up how a lot of the Seahawks fans are feeling:

I liken this to wanting a Ferrari but needing a family vehicle.

Nice read from Field Gulls.
