Kansas City Chiefs
Tackle Orlando Brown, Jr.
This would be the huge get for Seattle. Brown is 25 years old and in four years has missed one game. But it’s not just his age and health that make him an attractive option to replace Duane Brown at left tackle. Brown is a great tackle and has made three-straight Pro Bowls.
As Brown (and others like the Rams Andrew Whitworth) has shown, offensive linemen can now play well into their 30s which means Seattle signing Brown could make him the left tackle for the Seahawks for 10 years. Kansas City could franchise Brown but if they don’t Seattle needs to chase him aggressively and pay him handsomely.
Cornerback Mike Hughes
Seattle’s pass defense was not good again this season but to be fair a lot of the blame shouldn’t go on the cornerback group. D.J. Reed was excellent when healthy and Sidney Jones was better as the season wore on. But while Reed has seemingly become a consistently good corner, there is still a question about Jones.
While rookie Tre Brown was pretty good, he also suffered a bad leg injury and that might affect his 2022 season. Signing Hughes would help Seattle not only next year but in seasons beyond. Hughes is just 24 years old and coming off his best season. Pro Football Focis had him graded as the 20th-best CB overall this year. Hughes also has the ability to play outside and at nickel and Seattle needs help at both places.
