Seattle: Everyday we’re shuffling

Basketball

The GIST: We’re jealous of all you lucky ducks who were greeted by our fave power couple Sue Bird and Megan Rapinoe at the Lumen Field mass vaccination site yesterday. Hey Sue, Megan, while you’re there...care to help the Seahawks make roster decisions?

🏈Seahawks: While the Seahawks never seriously entertained the idea of trading QB Russell Wilson, we still breathed a sigh of relief to see all four teams on his list shut the door. Better news? The ’Hawks traded a 2021 fifth-round draft pick to the Las Vegas Raiders for offensive lineman Gabe Jackson, picking up some protection that Wilson so desperately craves. 

  • But the Griffin twins might both be gone. Although the ’Hawks were reportedly close to re-signing him, top CB Shaquill Griffin bade farewell to Seattle for Jacksonville. No official word yet on Shaquem, but he’s expected to leave too. Sad.
  • Without Shaquill, the ’Hawks are bringing in CB Ahkello Witherspoon, who was injury-prone during his tenure with the 49ers. The ’Hawks also picked up TE Gerald Everett, reuniting him with new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron. S’cute.

🥎🏀College: No. 6 UW softball swing into Pac-12 action with a four-game series against No. 7 Arizona starting tomorrow at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. The Huskies lost the last time the teams met, but there’s nothing the Huskies do better than revenge

  • ...especially if pitcher Gabbie Plain is in the circle. In her 16 appearances this season, she recorded 139 strikeouts and allowed just six runs. Superstar.

P.S. The Gonzaga and EWU men's basketball teams tip off March Madness on Saturday. It’s championship season, baby.
