Broncos | Russell Okung's stay might not be long

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 20:02:42 -0700

Denver Broncos OT Russell Okung signed a five-year deal worth $53 million in the offseason, but there is no guaranteed money in a deal he negotiated himself. If the team mines a quality left tackle in the 2016 NFL Draft, or finds another who can fit into their cap next year better than the four-year option at $48 million, Okung could be jettisoned in 2017 without any cap hit.

Seahawks | Seattle wants to protect Russell Wilson

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 15:22:13 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson could lose impending free-agent OT Russell Okung and OG J.R. Sweezy in free agency, but Seattle's offseason focus will still be protecting their starting quarterback.

"I think that's a real area of focus again, so we'll be talking about it," head coach Pete Carroll said. "We've got a couple unrestricted guys [on the offensive line]. We're going to have to deal with how that works out. It's a really important area for us, of course."

Fantasy Tip: Ideally the Seahawks will re-sign both Okung and Sweezy, but that could be too tall of a task. Don't be surprised if the Seahawks draft and/or sign an offensive lineman, especially if they lose both Okung and Sweezy. Wilson was under pressure throughout the 2015 season without much time to throw without running. Nevertheless, Wilson should be viewed as a top-five fantasy quarterback in 2016.
