(CBS Seattle) – By no means is it an accomplishment to brag about at the bar with your buds, but for the analyst types, the Seahawks are the biggest winners of the 2013 offseason.

Gary Davenport of the Bleacher Report says the NFC West turned in to a “cold war” from the moment the Super Bowl ended. The 49ers fired the battle’s first shot with a trade to land receiver Anquan Boldin, but the Seahawks would eventually make that move look virtually insignificant.

First, general manager John Schneider added to Seattle’s offensive firepower with a dynamic playmaker in wide receiver Percy Harvin, who the team acquired in a trade from the Minnesota Vikings before signing the 24-year-old to a six-year, $67 million contract.

Just days after landing Harvin, Schneider made a run at free agents Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett. According to Davenport’s report, that pair combined for 18.5 sacks in 2012 — a great way to compensate for Chris Clemons ACL injury.
