Bump’s Breakdown: Why Seahawks’ TEs need to play big role in offense

Sep 28, 2022, 5:03 PM

The Seahawks took a step forward on offense last Sunday.

Bump: Who has been Seahawks’ best offensive player so far

While Seattle lost 27-23 to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3 action to fall to 1-2 on the season, the offense under quarterback Geno Smith had a lot more success than it did in a Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Smith completed 32 of 44 pass attempts for 325 yards and two touchdowns, and while he did throw an interception, it came on a fourth-and-long play late in the game.

What’s the next step for Seattle’s offense?

In the latest Seahawks breakdown video from former NFL wide receiver Michael Bumpus, he explains the importance Seattle’s tight end position, which features three talented players – Colby Parkinson, Noah Fant and Will Dissly.
