It wasn't too long ago that the Seahawks' problems along the offensive line were quite clear.

"I'm really excited about where we're going," he said, via Sportspress Northwest. "I think this might be, when it's all said and done, the best group I've had. We'll see."

That's a bold statement after trading away long-time center Max Unger and losing guard James Carpenter in free agency.
