The Seattle Seahawks need a bit of a makeover this offseason. Maybe this will be the year that John Schneider decides to be ultra-aggressive in chasing high-priced but high-quality free agents.
There are many players taking the field Sunday in the Conference Championship games that should show up on the Seahawks radar as far as who should be signed in free agency to get the team back to the postseason.
While most teams have at least two players that would be great in a Seattle uniform, I will start with the Bengals who have fewer high-quality free agents simply because they are such a young team overall.
Free agents playing in the Conference Championship games who be Seahawks next year
Tight end C.J. Uzomah
The Seahawks may have to remake their tight end room this offseason. Will Dissly and Gerald Everett, easily their top two tight ends of 2021, are both free agents. While Seattle has the cap space to sign both, they could also both leave.
Uzomah is better than his statistics imply. Part of the issue is that the Bengals are loaded at wideout so Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins are going to get the most targets, a bit like Seattle’s Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf. But Cincinnati is even more lopsided than Seattle in which positions they target so Uzomah has a better chance of more receptions and yards in Seattle. Plus, Uzomah basically catches everything thrown his way as he caught 77.8 percent of his targets this season.
