In FOA 2009, we suggested that the Seahawks' offense was virtually guaranteed to be healthier this year. Perhaps we were wrong. After failing a physical, guard Mike Wahle was released by the Seattle Seahawks on the first day of training camp. Wahle has struggled to recover from arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder over the offseason, and will likely retire. The Seahawks will move right guard Rob Sims (who played only one game last year over to left guard, and Mansfield Wrotto (four starts last season) will battle second-round draft pick Max Unger for the right guard slot.
