Pete Carroll and John Schneider have carefully constructed one of the most talented young teams in the NFL. When they took over as head coach and general manager prior to the 2010 season, the Seahawks were an ever- aging team in salary cap hell.
It took these two men in charge little time to flip this roster upside down, as Seattle went from one of the oldest teams in the league to now being one of the youngest. At season's end the 'Hawks were the third-youngest team in the league, not to mention the youngest team to play and win a playoff game.
Very few holdovers from the Mike Holmgren/Jim Mora Jr. era exist. However, there are a few recognizable names who could be on their way out. Age is a player's biggest Achilles heel in the NFL, and by the looks of it, the Seahawks organization isn't into paying players who are indeed over the hill.
The youth movement started in Seattle a long time ago, which is why you see so many young players log playing time. Carroll's "Always Compete" motto drives everyone to give their absolute best, young and old.
With their sights set solely on the offseason, let's take a look at five players the Seahawks should trade, cut or choose not to re-sign.
