The Seattle Seahawks need to replace Russell Wilson, who was traded to the Denver Broncos this offseason, and there is no shortage of quarterbacks vying for that role. But offensive coordinator Shane Waldron believes one is out ahead of the rest.

While appearing on 93.3 KJR earlier this week, Waldron indicated that Geno Smith has an early edge over Drew Lock & Co.

“Right now, Geno has done such a good job of carrying over (the offensive principles from 2021). He already had a head start over Drew right there,” Waldron said, via the News Tribune.
