Why the Seahawks’ quest for a WR3 is overrated

When Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore departed for the Carolina Panthers, it meant much for the offseason speculators, but the impact for the Seahawks has been overblown.

In fact, the “WR3” search has not produced any big-name incomers to the team in part because the third wide receiver is not historically very meaningful for Russell Wilson.

As the third option at WR for Russell Wilson last year, Moore took with him 35 receptions for 417 yards and six touchdowns. For the first time in his career Moore had a catch percentage above 50%, and it earned him a pay raise somewhere else.
