This is normally the time of the offseason where we would talk about the Seahawks finishing up OTAs, instead we're talking about the end of the team's zoom meetings. With the relatively lack of news, some of the biggest news still remains the comments from Pete Carroll revisiting the team's decision not to sign Colin Kaepernick. We provide some of the context that Carroll may have been unwilling to offer in the press conference with the mindset of trying to protect his team, while at the same time trying not to hurt Kap's chances of getting back into the NFL, and not wanting to talk about the potential for added distractions.

Where have the Seahawks spent their money this offseason? In an offseason where there was potential to bring in some big name talent, to this point they've generally spread the money out rather than spending big in one spot. Can we really believe that Carroll is content with the job they've done to this point in the offseason?

The potential for a 2020 season may even be in jeopardy, but Adam may have the expertise needed to consult with teams on how to live life outdoors and away from people, all things that may be necessary for football to happen in the fall. Closing out the show, we talk about camper home repair, how wrong Snopes is about Tom Brady, the excitement over rural Internet, and the Bridge to the Future march.
