Since taking over as owner of the Seattle Seahawks • Absender: liny195, 02.12.2019 07:43

following the death of her brother , Paul, last October, Jody Allen has already had to make a few key decisions for the future of the franchise.The Seahawks gave head coach Pete Carroll a contract extension in December and made quarterback Russell Wilson the highest-paid player in the NFL last week.“Jody is in charge of the organization now,” General Manager John Schneider said at Wilson’s press conference last week. “She’s our boss. It was great. She was super supportive. She was super involved. She was awesome.”Allen had to sign off on the inclusion of a no-trade clause in Wilson’s deal, which agent Mark Rodgers has said was a key aspect of getting Wilson’s extension completed“We wanted him to be here for life, right? So, it’s something that I needed to discuss with Jody and it’s something that’s part of the negotiation. There’s a lot of different components in negotiations and that was just one of them,” Schneider said.Now Allen will be a part of overseeing her first draft as chairman of the team. Schneider said on Monday that Allen was meeting with them later in the afternoon to be walked through the process as they continue toward finalizing their draft board.“Jody is coming over this afternoon, so we’ll take her through the process of what the board looks like right now,” Schneider said. “We’re done with the coaches. We were with those guys this weekend. And so we have some things to work through still.”Paul was a regular fixture in the team’s draft room through the years – at least for day one of the draft. Schneider said on Monday he wasn’t sure yet whether Jody would also be interested in attending, but noted her enthusiasm for the proceedings.“We’re going to talk to her this afternoon about it,” he said. “Paul was so used to the NBA that he loved coming for the first round and then he’d kind of see all those names (for the latter rounds) and be like D.K. Metcalf Jersey , ‘Alright, well, see you guys.’ I don’t know yet. I know she’s very excited, very into it.”The future of the team was uncertain following Paul’s death from cancer last October. Jody was made the executrix and trustee of Paul’s estate, which included the ownership of the Seahawks, Portland Trail Blazers and much more. Jody has made the transition a smooth one with help from Paul’s long-time associate Bert Kolde. Paul, Jody and Kolde made up the board of Vulcan Sports and Entertainment, which oversees the Seahawks and Trail Blazers.

The team’s selection of three different receivers certainly did nothing to quell fears among fans regarding the truth of those reports, and late last week the bomb dropped when the Seahawks released Baldwin. While it’s no secret that Baldwin has had multiple surgeries this offseason, Tuesday morning one prominent NFL reporter is at least questioning whether the end of Baldwin’s career is really being brought about by physical ailments. Obviously, it takes all of a fraction of a second to recognize that the source for this particular idea, Richard Sherman, may or may not have an interest in painting the team in a bad light. Sherman had no problem going on the record following his release in the spring of 2018 and giving his side of the story, so grain of salt disclaimer and all that. However, as many have noticed, in the series of tweets that Baldwin authored, multiple fans have noted that Doug failed to make mention or give thanks to several key members of the Seahawks organization. The plot thickens further when perusing Baldwin’s like history on Twitter, as he took the time to like tweets in which he was tagged by former members of the team, including Ben Obomanu and Golden Tate L.J. Collier Jersey , as well as current member Jarran Reed. In contrast, tweets from Russell Wilson, the Seahawks and several others went ignored, which one could use to further highlight the omission of any mention of Pete Carroll, John Schneider and Jim Harbaugh.How deep one wishes to read into all of that is up to themselves. However, ADB did give fans a glimpse into the question of why he would be walking away if it isn’t injuries, and it has nothing to do with anything but himself and his wants as a person. I’m not sure how much more clear Baldwin could be. “You will realize that the affirmation you receive from catching a football won’t suffice that little boy’s desire.” That’s about as simple and as straight forward as it can get - playing football doesn’t fulfill him emotionally the way other things in life do, or have the potential to. In short, the time has come for Baldwin to move on to the next chapter in his life. What his feelings are towards specific other teammates and the organization remains unanswered, but the question of why seems to have been adequately addressed. Baldwin has reached a point in his life where there is more to it than football, and now he can devote more of his time and energy to those off field matters which do fulfill what he’s looking for from life.
