Five free agents Seahawks should look at signing
By Lee Vowell
Bryan Bulaga, right tackle
I could have gone several different ways with number five on this list. The Seahawks could try to lure a top cornerback to Seattle, but I still think Pete Carroll has enough faith in Tre Flowers to keep him at right corner. Seattle also needs a third option at receiver because the current group after Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf is quite unspectacular, but I think there are several potential draftees at receiver that the Seahawks could choose from. Depending on the status of Rashaad Penny’s knee, Seattle could try to sign a backup at running back.
I instead think there is a very outside chance that Seattle brings in Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga. My expectation would be that Bulaga stays with Green Bay but the Packers are unlikely to franchise Bulaga and might decide to go younger at Bulaga’s position.
Seattle will need to rebuild its offensive line on the right side. George Fant and Germain Ifedi are free agents. Seattle does not have a definite starter among its younger players on the roster. Bulaga does have an injury history but he isn’t really old yet. He will be 31 years old when the 2020 starts but offensive linemen can be productive into their mid-30s.
A Seahawks line with Duane Brown, (insert name of left guard here), Justin Britt, D.J. Fluker and Bryan Bulaga wouldn’t be the best offensive line in the NFL but it would be in the top 10. Bulaga would be an upgrade over Ifedi and Russell Wilson would feel a bit more confident that he has time to throw. Again, Bulaga to Seattle is not likely to happen, but anything is possible.
