The Seahawks will have a new starting quarterback for the first time in a decade as Russell Wilson was traded. Now, Geno Smith, Wilson’s backup from 2019-21 is back for his fourth year in Seattle and is facing off with Drew Lock, a 2019 second-round pick who came to the Seahawks from Denver in the blockbuster Wilson trade.

Someone’s who’s been watching that position battle very closely is Michael Bumpus, a former Seahawks receiver who now hosts Seattle Sports 710 AM’s Bump and Stacy, which you can hear every weekday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
