Carroll: Geno Smith Still Ahead of Drew Lock for Seahawks QB Job

The Seahawks quarterback battle continues during this year’s training camp. Coach Pete Carroll has yet to name an official starter for the 2022 season.

Carroll will be naming a new starting quarterback for the first time since Russell Wilson joined the team in 2012. Wilson was traded to the Broncos in the offseason this year.

Previously, the Seattle coach said Seahawks veteran Geno Smith was leading the battle between Drew Lockwho was acquired in the Wilson trade from Denver.

Carroll’s leader remains the same after he was asked this week at training camp for any quarterback battle updates.

“Geno continues to be on top, he’s ahead, he’s been in the lead for all the obvious reasons, and he’s holding onto it and doing a really good job of battling,” Carroll said, via Pro Football Talk. “Both guys are communicating beautifully, they’re learning well, we don’t have any issues with anything we’re trying to do. There are no issues here where we have to ‘Oh, we can’t quite do this or that with this guy or that guy,’ it isn’t like that. They’re very talented arm-wise, and the ability to throw the ball down the field is there. So, let the games begin.”
