Not much to say here except that marriage and a contract extension seem to agree with the veteran punter. Ryan is now the most-tenured played on the team and will likely finish his career here. He was simply dominant all preseason, booming long punts when the Seahawks were pinned deep in their own end, and knocking them out inside the 20 when given the chance.

There was a lot of “this is the best roster since 2013” talk prior to camp, yet as we approach the cut to 53 there are some significant questions about key depth and a couple starting positions. While the interior offensive line looks vastly improved, the tackles are a major question mark. He may regret not going out and acquiring a natural WLB to replace Irvin, and the decision to (pending the rest of the league-wide cuts) apparently go with UDFA rookie Trevone Boykin as Russell Wilson’s backup is a risky move.
But when you look at that draft class, and the fact that 3-5 undrafted rookies might also make this roster, you have to give him kudos as well.
