The Seattle Seahawks and Geno Smith have both said all the right things about pursuing a long-term marriage, but the tone could turn more serious as free agency nears. Smith took to Twitter to share an interesting message which some are taking as a subtweet towards the Seahawks regarding negotiations. The Seahawks quarterback retweeted a July 12, 2022 message noting, “Men lie. Women lie. Numbers don’t lie.” Smith could have been quoting a famous song from rapper Yo Gotti, but the quarterback added an interesting emphasis when quote tweeting his old message.

“Numbers,” Smith emphasized on January 20, 2023 while retweeting his old message.

Seattle Sports’ Mike Salk believes Smith’s tweet is related to his negotiations with the Seahawks, speculating that the team’s initial offer is not the lucrative deal the Pro Bowler is expecting. The Seahawks have already begun conducting business for the offseason as evidenced by the team’s new deal with kicker Jason Myers.

“It sure feels like you told me one thing, you told me you loved me, you told me you wanted me, and the numbers don’t reflect that,” the analyst said regarding Smith’s tweet during the January 23 edition of “Brock and Salk.”
