Russell Wilson's days leading the Seattle Seahawks are over.

Simultaneously, the team is hosting a quarterback competition at training camp between Drew Locke and Geno Smith.

Speaking to reporters on Friday, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll revealed that Smith has an early lead in the quarterback competition.

"Jeno remains on top, he's ahead, he's ahead for all the obvious reasons,

And he's holding onto that and doing a really good job of battling," Carroll said.

"Both guys are communicating beautifully, they're learning well, we don't have a problem with what we're trying to do.

Ain't no problem here where we don't have to be like, 'Oh, we can't do this or that with this guy or that guy,' it's not like

He is very talented, and has the ability to throw the ball across the field.

So let's start the game."

Smith played four games for the Seahawks last season, completing 68.4 percent of his passes for 702 yards with five touchdowns and one interception.

Even though Carroll has expressed confidence in Smith, the NFL world doesn't see how Seattle will be able to make a competitive offense this season.

On the bright side, even as things go terribly wrong for the Seahawks this season, they could potentially draft CJ Stroud or Bryce Young.

The Seahawks have a few more weeks to figure out who will be their starting quarterback.

Ironically, the Seahawks will face Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos in their first match of the season.
