This could also leave them with that nagging doubt as to whether they have the personnel on board to make that roster as strong as it can possibly be.
More pertinently those free agent players that have not yet found employment for the 2021 season, will start to realize that the further teams get into their preseason programs the smaller their chance of finding potential employment becomes.
Seahawks prime target in free agency
Any player that has not yet found a franchise to play for in 2021, will know that his market value dips with every passing week, as the demand for their services diminishes due to teams deciding they have the personnel they want.
With a tight salary cap to work with, most teams, including the Seahawks, will be waiting for the right moment to get the remaining free agents at the lowest possible salary for 2021. The one player the Seahawks should be targeting more than another other in my opinion is Austin Reiter.
I have made the case for the Seahawks to sign Reiter before, but as time has moved on and Reiter has still not been picked up, the chances of the Seahawks getting him at a bargain price increase.
Using Pro Football Focus ratings as a guide, current Seahawks starting center Ethan Pocic, rates 22nd of the 32 starting centers.
Reiters pff.com rating of 70.9 would rank him ninth in the NFL, so is a clear upgrade on Pocic at the position. On top of that Reiter’s strength is in pass protection, so is just what Russell Wilson has been asking for.
