Seahawks QB Geno Smith contract talks a ‘conversation that’s coming’

A report by NFL analyst Ian Rapoport surfaced Sunday indicating the Seattle Seahawks intend to keep quarterback Geno Smith on the roster and long-term contract talks are to start as soon as the end of the season.

“In fact, the Seahawks want both QBs back – Smith and backup Drew Lock,” Rapoport wrote. “They have yet to make an offer to Smith, who’s set to be a free agent in 2023, to extend his contract, and those talks will happen after the season.”

Following the loss to the Buccaneers in Munich on Sunday, coach Pete Carroll was asked about the report.

“That’s a really good question, we’re not there talking about that yet,” Carroll said. “We’re in the middle of the season, and we’re doing the things we need to do. But there’s a conversation that’s coming. We understand that. Really, really pleased with our guys and think they’ve done a great job. Geno’s having a fantastic season. He showed it again tonight. And we really like Drew also, so we’ll see how that goes.”

Undoubtedly, this storyline will be followed closely, so stay tuned.
