With all the NFL signings and the comings and goings of the Seahawks, we called on John Clayton for another week of analysis on the Silvi Knows podcast.
The Seahawks bring back a former first round pick in linebacker Bruce Irvin, which should bolster an already stacked linebacking corps. Clayton gives us his opinion of the Irvin signing right off the top of the podcast and follows that up with the latest on prized defensive end Jadeveon Clowney (2:30).
The Hawks also signed former Steelers guard and center BJ Finney. Does that make current center Justin Britt expendable (620) and are the Hawks looking for a running back (9:20)?
Clayton also talks about the effect of Tom Brady signing with Tampa Bay (10:00) and with Arizona signing DeAndre Hopkins and a few other notable players, is the NFC West the strongest division in football (12:20)? Lastly, how will the Corona Virus crisis effect teams preparing for the upcoming NFL season (15:00) and will it have a lesser effect on veteran teams (16:20)?
John Clayton helps us sort it all out on this week's Silvi Knows podcast.

When it comes to football in the Northwest, no one knows it better than John Clayton. From his days covering the Seahawks for the Tacoma News Tribune to his present-day radio show on 710 ESPN Seattle, Clayton has been the source for NFL news and all things Seahawks for over three decades. With NFL free agency on the horizon and the draft closing fast, the timing was right to have Clayton on the Silvi Knows podcast.
He gives his thoughts on prized free agent Jadeveon Clowney (1:10), as well as Seahawks defensive tackle Jarran Reed (2:30) and what about right tackle Germain Ifedi (6:00)?
Clayton also weighs in on new tight end Greg Olsen who comes to the Seahawks from Carolina (7:50) and the future of fellow tight end Luke Willson (9:00).
While there are lots of questions surrounding the Seahawks, we also talk to John about Tom Brady (15:00), his thoughts on the new CBA (20:00) and why Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner are urging players to reject it (22:00).
Insight as only John Clayton can bring it on the Silvi Knows podcast.

Washington State head football coach Nick Rolovich will get the first good look at his football team when the Cougars open spring practice March 27th.
Rolovich and Athletic Director Pat Chun join us on the Silvi Knows podcast to talk about the football team and new athletic facilities under construction on the WSU campus.
Both men talk about the transition from the Mike Leach era and the steps that went into hiring Rolovich (1:10).
Rolovich gives us some insight on his personality like his love for hats (4:40). He also talks about the Cougs' quarterback situation (8:00) a clock to be installed which will count down to Apple Cup (9:20), and also his own playing career which took him overseas to the World Football League and indoors to the Arena Football League (12:00). Lastly, Rolovich talks about "Cougar Madness" which is a social media bracket set up like March Madness, but instead of fans picking winning teams, they will be voting on the best Cougar football games of all time (17:40).
Chun enlightens us on future plans to retire numbers of some of the great athletes and coaches in WSU history (10:30) and the 10 million dollar renovation to the baseball stadium (14:20) as well as plans for an indoor football facility.
