Seahawks’ Pete Carroll is still looking for Doug Baldwin’s replacement

Pete Carroll, Doug Baldwin

The Seattle Seahawks know that Tyler Lockett is their No. 1 wide receiver, but after that, the state of their receiving corps gets pretty murky.

With Doug Baldwin gone, the Seahawks are left without a true No. 2 wide out at the moment, and head coach Pete Carroll says he is still searching for the guy who can fill that role:

“There’s some things that Doug did that no one is going to be able to do,” Carroll said, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. “He’s so physical, he’s so tough, he was so tough and physical and that to me was unique. You’ll see we’ve got all kinds of guys we got to look at. There’s going to be a big rotation in there. A bunch of guys have done well, I mean all these guys are good. We’re just going to let the game play out and see what happens and see who rises to the top at the end. But, I will tell you that Tyler and [Jaron Brown] have done a great job, we’ve seen lot of good things, David Moore too; but don’t mess with the rest of the guys, the rest of the guys are all battling to really show where they fit and it’s going to be really exciting where this goes.”

Seattle doesn’t exactly have a ton of options.

Rookie D.K. Metcalf will have a shot of winning the job, as will third-year receiver David Moore, who actually had a solid year this past season. There is also 29-year-old veteran Jaron Brown, who logged just 14 catches in 2018.

Obviously, the Seahawks likely think Metcalf is the No. 2 (or potentially even No. 1) of the future, but at the moment, there is a whole lot of uncertainty in Seattle heading into 2019.

The Seahawks won 10 games and snatched a Wild Card spot this past year, but they fell to the Dallas Cowboys in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs.
