    The Seattle Seahawks' linebacker depth paid off in a big way when part-time starter and former seventh-round draft pick Malcolm Smith took home MVP honors in Super Bowl XLVIII.

    Pete Carroll's squad will have to call on that depth for the rest of offseason practices now that strong-side linebacker Bruce Irvin is back on the shelf.

    Irvin underwent hip surgery on Monday, per multiple reports. He expects to be back for training camp.

    Should Irvin encounter a setback, Smith will enter the starting lineup alongside Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright. It was Irvin's four-game suspension last September that allowed Smith to emerge as a valuable contributor on Dan Quinn's defense.

    The Seahawks are fortunate that their linebacker is missing just a couple of months while their division rivals lost Daryl Washington for the entire season.

    The latest "Around The League Podcast" breaks down the news and examines developments from the first week of OTAs.

    ...and how much money does he make? I don't care about his SB play either. Seattle didn't need him to get to 13 wins or curbstomp Denver either.
    Harvin has only played in 10 of his last 32 games. He's not a guy i want on my team. The only reason no one in Seattle cares that he's stealing cash is because they're winning.

    Exactly right. They could have invested that money in contract extensions, less injury prone free agents, etc.

    So you're trying to tell me the strategy of drafting Pro Bowl calliber players in Rounds 5-7 isn't sustainable?

    I think the NY Giants were the "Kings of the Draft" for a couple seasons. Somehow I think that road has been diverted
