My concern with the Whitner situation is that this draft class seems to be lacking (unlike last year). While Whitner had a much better season than 2012-2013, he's still not good enough in coverage and draws too many personal fouls to deserve a major contract.
As much as I hate acknowledging good things about Seattle, they have shown what two good safeties can do to teams. I think Reid has the potential to be great. Whitner...not so much.
