Pass rush anyone?

Even if Seattle had kept Frank Clark and Jarran Reed had not been suspended they would need more depth for getting to the opposing quarterback. But Clark is gone and Reed is suspended so pass rush is a huge question mark.

Seattle has potential, however. They signed free agent edge rusher Ziggy Ansah to replace Clark. Ansah won’t play against the Vikings. He is too valuable for the regular season and might not play in the preseason at all. No worries and no concerns there. If he can be good to start the season, that is far more important than preseason play.

But what will Seattle get out of players who need to step up? These players include Jacob Martin and Rasheem Green. The thing to remember is that preseason can be misleading. Green was actually pretty good last preseason and then did nothing in the regular season.

Next. Who is hurt for the Seahawks going into preseason game 2 for 2019?. dark

Seattle might have one other option to help on the defensive line should it be obvious that 2019 might be a lost year if no young guys will truly help in the pass rush. The Texans look to be shopping defensive end Jadeveon Clowney as he is trying to work out a long-term deal with Houston. He has been a bit underwhelming as a sack artist in his career but he is still a very good player. And Clowney can play the run really well. Might we see Clowney for the Seahawks in preseason game three? Stay tuned.
