Seattle Seahawks General Manager John Schneider says the team is evaluating whether receivers Terrell Owens and Braylon Edwards can co-exist as teammates. We break down the fantasy implications.
Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider says the team is still evaluating whether receivers Terrell Owens and Braylon Edwards can be trusted as teammates. Schneider made the comment Wednesday on SiriusXM NFL Radio. Owens made his preseason debut with Seattle last weekend in a performance that included a dropped touchdown pass from Matt Flynn. Edwards had a touchdown in Seattle's preseason opener but had no catches against the Broncos.
Analysis: Neither Owens nor Edwards should be very high on any fantasy owner's list at this point, as both are declining and Seattle doesn't have a settled starter at quarterback. It will be interesting to see what the Seahawks decide to do with Edwards and Owens, as both might be able to help in spurts but neither will likely be reliable for an entire season. Based on his answer, it sounds like Schneider is considering the idea of letting at least one of them go.
