Quarterback Sam Howell is headed to the Seattle Seahawks as they have agreed to a trade with the Washington Commanders. The Commanders have the #2 overall pick in the NFL Draft, and they are hoping to land their next franchise QB with that pick. Geno Smith was the starting QB for the Seahawks last season, and Howell will now be competing for that starting job.

“Another QB trade: Commanders are sending last year’s starter Sam Howell to the Seahawks in a pick swap, per sources,” Adam Schefter said in a tweet. “Seahawks receive Howell, a fourth-round pick (No. 102), a sixth (No. 179). Commanders receive a third (No. 78) and a fifth (No. 152).”

Sam Howell has been in the NFL for two seasons now after being drafted by the Commanders in 2022. He was the starting QB for the team last season, and now he is starting a new chapter with the Seahawks.

Howell had an interesting year last season as the starting QB for the Commanders. He finished 388-612 through the air for 3,946 yards, 21 touchdowns and 21 interceptions. The 21 interceptions is the obvious standout from last season's stats. Howell has the potential to be a good QB in the NFL, but you can't have the same amount of interceptions as touchdown passes. It just can't happen.

The good news for Howell is that he has only played one season as a starter in the NFL. He is very young, and he is still getting acclimated to the league. There is a lot of time for Howell to grow in the NFL and he could end up being a solid QB in Seattle.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with the QB job next year for the Seahawks. Howell will have to clean a lot of things up if he wants to have a chance to be the starter.
