    The Seattle Seahawks selected Joey Hunt in the sixth round in 2016. When the Seahawks took Hunt Youth Michael Dickson Jersey , he was projected to be in competition to start at center because at that point, Justin Britt was still known as a guard. Draft profiles read like this:Hunt was considered undersized with a future as a backup at center — use in case of emergency — and that’s where he came into play in Seattle’s Week 3 win over the Dallas Cowboys. But with the way he played, some are wondering if Hunt is capable of being more than a backup. That praise was not around two years ago when Hunt made his first career NFL start. That day came in Tampa Bay against the Buccaneers and the Seahawks scored just five points in the loss; Russell Wilson was sacked six times, threw two interceptions, and Thomas Rawls had 38 yards on 12 carries. This week, Wilson was sacked twice Shaquill Griffin Jersey , had two touchdowns, and Chris Carson carried it 32 times. I don’t know exactly the role that Hunt played in Seattle’s success on Sunday, but the fact that they had any success at all is a positive sign for them moving forward.Especially if they’d feel comfortable keeping Hunt at starting center moving forward.Britt surprisingly barreled his way into the job in 2016, winning out over Hunt and all other comers, then playing at a near Pro Bowl level and signing a $27 million extension last August. Britt is one of the highest-paid centers in the league and there seems to be little chance he’ll be able to earn his $11 million+ salary in 2020. That’s likely just too much for the Seahawks to commit to the position given what we’ve seen in their history, however it still means that they’d have to pay Hunt would they want to keep him around.That’s getting ahead of ourselves a little bit Authentic Ethan Pocic Jersey , but what does a starting Hunt mean for the team today? It could mean that when Britt (shoulder) is healthy enough to start again, would the team consider moving him back to right tackle or left guard? I think that’s a consideration that absolutely has to be on the table, because Hunt has one start to prove that he’s also someone worth considering.Seahawks bring back Maurice Alexander The Seattle Seahawks have signed safety Maurice Alexander, per Ian Rapoport.Alexander, a fourth round pick of the St. Louis Rams in 2014, worked his way up to starting 14 games at free safety in 2016 Youth Rashaad Penny Jersey , recording 50 tackles and two interceptions. He won the job to open 2017, but four games in, Sean McVay deemed a healthy scratch in Week 5 against the Seahawks and replaced him with John Johnson. The team released Alexander shortly thereafter and he remained a free agent. Seattle signed Alexander in the offseason, releasing him on September 1.The Seahawks are of course searching for safety help after the loss of Earl Thomas to a broken leg this past Sunday. Former Indianapolis Colts safety T.J. Green indicated via Twitter that he was going to Seattle, but no formal announcement has been made. The Seahawks could have signed both, with the most likely corresponding move being the release of safety Shalom Luani , who was active several games ago which cost the team defensive tackle Tom Johnson.The cycle continues.Edit: With Mychal Kendricks suspended, it opens up another spot and with Alexander’s experience at linebacker, makes sense why the team might want both and could still use both without losing Luani or someone else.
