On Roster:

Placed on Injured Reserve:


The Seahawks lost Chris Clemons and Red Bryant over the offseason, but they replaced the two veterans with veteran Kevin Willams and rookie Cassius Marsh.

Both have shown they can be successful as the first point of contact on defense.

Seattle’s secondary gets a lot of fame and fortune but the way this defensive line comes together could prove to be a difference-maker against run-heavy teams like the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles, both of whom are on the schedule this year.

And don’t forget what the Rams’ Zac Stacy did against the Seahawks last year. Seattle’s improvement up front shows they certainly didn’t.
