3 Seahawks Players in Danger of Losing Their Starting Jobs in the 2020 NFL Season
One of the premier teams in the NFL for nearly a decade, the Seattle Seahawks are expecting to be in Super Bowl contention every year.
That means that nobody's starting job is guaranteed. Excellence is required from each starter on the team, and it doesn't take much to lose that role. With that in mind, here are three Seahawks players at risk of losing their starting jobs in the 2020 NFL season.
1. Chris Carson
Chris Carson's starting job already looked like it was in jeopardy late in the 2019 season before Rashaad Penny suffered a season-ending injury. The organization has never seemed to be sold on Carson (they spent a first-round pick on Rashaad Penny in 2018), and he saw his workload drop significantly when he started to have some fumbling issues last year. With Penny returning and rookie DeeJay Dallas in town, don't expect Carson to have a long leash.
2. Mike Iupati
The Seattle Seahawks re-signed Mike Iupati, but a one-year, $2.5-million contract doesn't exactly show a ton of faith in his abilities. He graded out with an underwhelming 60.3 overall grade on Pro Football Focus in 2019, and third-round rookie Damien Lewis will be breathing down his neck.
3. Will Dissly
Will Dissly should have the inside track on the starting tight end spot as he returned from a torn Achilles from 2019, even with veteran Greg Olsen on the roster. When healthy, Dissly was significantly more efficient than Olsen in 2019. His grasp on that job could be tenuous, though. There's no guarantee he returns at full strength from that injury, and with Olsen, Jacob Hollister and even rookie Colby Parkinson vying for snaps, Dissly doesn't get much room for error.
