The Seattle Seahawks are entering 2022 in the first year of a rebuild after trading away starting quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos this offseason. As of now, Seattle has two quarterbacks that are battling it out for the starting spot – Geno Smith and Drew Lock.

Seahawks Training Camp News

With training camp underway we are getting our first indication of who is leading that competition. Geno Smith is the one getting the majority of first team reps.

It was perceived heading in to training camp that Smith would be the unofficial leader due to his familiarity with the offense since he has been Russell Wilson's backup for the last two seasons and even made three starts last year in place of an injured Wilson.

Drew Lock shouldn't be entirely counted out though. Seattle acquired him for a reason. They clearly seem to think there is some potential there and maybe they can be the ones to tap back into what we saw from Lock in his rookie season. This will surely be a QB competition that goes well into training camp and could depend on how they both perform in preseason games.

Regardless, it seems like it will be a rough season in Seattle no matter who is under center, with the Seahawks holding +13000 odds to win the Super Bowl, the fourth-worst odds in the NFL.
