Seahawks should sign these three remaining unrestricted free agents

The Seahawks still have a little money to spend in free agency. They should probably spend some of it on three of their own unrestricted free agents (UFAs). Seattle currently have 13 UFAs left heading towards the 2021 season. Some of these are players who haven’t done much in a Seahawks uniform but some are.

After the recent Aldon Smith situation, Seattle might take another glance or two at which players they want to re-sign. Sure, Smith’s off-field issue is all alleged at this point and maybe there is more than we know about what is going on. Can some of the Seahawks UFAs help with a pass rush? That’s questionable.

Bruce Irvin can chase down quarterbacks but also appears to be on the verge of retiring. So let’s throw out the possibility of Irvin returning because he likely isn’t. Plus, he got hurt early in the 2020 season and Seattle might not want to take the chance of re-signing him.

But who should they re-sign? Here is an idea of that.

UFAs Seahawks should re-sign

K.J. Wright

Every day that goes by K.J. Wright gets cheaper to re-sign. This kind of stinks to be honest. Wright is invaluable as a human being as he seems like a good person. That is more important than being a good football player. But Wright gets paid to be a football player. At this point, Wright is going to get paid closer to the veteran league minimum than the $7 million he made in 2020.

That’s bad for Wright but for good for Seattle. Wright is still an excellent player and a great fit for Seattle and he needs to retire a Seahawk. Wright playing opposite Bobby Wagner is just how the world needs to be.

Geno Smith

I know this isn’t a sexy signing but it’s a needed one. Russell Wilson isn’t going to always stay healthy (probably) and while Smith isn’t going to win any Super Bowls he also is a serviceable backup. Plus, he should only cost Seattle about $1 million.

Neiko Thorpe

Every team that needs players who are good in the locker room and good on special teams and Thorpe fits both those bills. There is a reason Thorpe was voted as a captain by the other players on the Seahawks. He gives 100 percent effort and lives and breathes being a Seahawk and needs to stay one.
