A few new faces in Coyle and Pierre-Louis, but the linebackers should be as solid as they were last season.
The return of Wright, Wagner, Smith and Irvin will be huge in the middle of the field. When people think of the best linebacking tandems in the league, a lot of thoughts go to the San Francisco 49ers’ Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman, but Seattle’s linebackers should be in the conversation as well.
Like the rest of the defense, Seattle isn’t just good to go at linebacker — they are stacked.
