The Seahawks still have a bit of cap space available to sign one or two decently priced and good free agents. Spending wisely obviously is a must but there are lots of good remaining free agents for the Seahawks to choose from.
The question is should Seattle go for talent knowing which players they sign are very likely to help the team, though at positions where those players won’t eat up a ton of snaps and therefore may not be most cost-effective. Or does Seattle go for positions of need but maybe not a player or players who are at the top of the game at their respective positions.
One thing we know for sure, general manager John Schneider is not going to overspend for any player Seattle tries to sign. This has been a pretty productive offseason for Seattle even with limited cap space and very few draft picks because Seattle has approached it the Schneider way, which is the correct way.
Three free agents Seahawks should sign who are great fits
For this article, I am going to assume that Schneider and Pete Carroll go after players they think will fit best at their greatest areas of need. Gurley is no longer the running back he once was due to overuse and injuries, but Seattle doesn’t need a number one back. They need depth behind Chris Carson.
Bringing Gurley in just makes sense. Shane Waldron knows him well as Gurley was a Ram while Waldron was involved with the Rams offense from 2017 through 2019. In 2017 and 2018, Gurley was a First-Team All-Pro back. Waldron would know how best to make Gurley fit into Seattle’s offense. And Gurley would not have to take on the bulk of the snaps so he should be fresh most times he comes in.
