The Seattle Seahawks have been scrambling to fix their secondary issues ever since the Legion of Boom days. We have seen a little bit of everything in terms of trying to recreate a lockdown defense. Initially, they stuck with their prototypical lengthy physical corners, then transitioned to smaller cornerbacks hoping to spark some magic. They even traded multiple first-rounders for safety Jamal Adams in an attempt to get an enforcer like Kam Chancellor to pair with a ballhawk in Quandre Diggs.
While there will only be one true Legion of Boom, the Seahawks are presented with a unique challenge entering this offseason. They have the chance to reshape this backend to compliment their new aggressive defensive coordinator in Clint Hurtt. But, with only $35 million dollars in projected cap space, spending money on the backend means they will not be able to apply the necessary capital to other positions of need such as offensive line.
Although, I do think they can address their other needs through the draft. Regardless, the Seattle Seahawks are going to need to pick and choose where they want to spend the most money in free agency. Well, here is the argument for a secondary that needs improvement.
3 free agent cornerbacks the Seattle Seahawks should look at
An aggressive defensive coordinator means having good man-to-man cornerbacks can be all the difference in making or breaking this defense. After extending Jamal Adams this past season, they have the strong safety position locked up. They also have other young players under contract who they have maneuvered around in the backend over the years in Marquise Blair, Ugo Amadi and Tre Brown.
As mentioned numerous times on this website and other media outlets, the Seahawks number one priority in the offseason should be bringing back safety Quandre Diggs. If they are able to retain him, then they need to shift their focus to the cornerback position. Here are 3 free agent cornerbacks the Seahawks should look into and offer a contract.
