Seahawks: 3 recently released players that Seattle should sign
By Jake Luppino
With free agency underway, the Seattle Seahawks have been pretty quiet. For the most part, they have been focused on retaining their own guys.
With plenty of money still left to spend, many 12s are confused as to why the Seahawks haven’t been that big of a player thus far. As we have seen over the years, Seattle has become more of a bargain shopper in free agency. They try to fill voids at positions with cheap contracts on guys who are looking for a second or third chance. We saw them do this with D.J. Reed and they are now doing it on CB Artie Burns.
Regardless of what direction this franchise is heading in, the Seahawks should use the money on pivotal positions. Such as offensive tackle, center or edge rusher. While the draft class is deep at those positions, it certainly couldn’t hurt to bring in guys who have an established presence in this league and serve as a foundation for a rebuild if they were to go in that direction. Obviously, with no real answer at the quarterback position, many are just assuming they are going to rebuild.
3 players Seattle Seahawks should sign who got released
If the Seahawks were to go with the rookie route and draft Malik Willis or Matt Coral in the draft, it is still critically important to surround them with pieces that can help elevate this team while they grow and develop. We saw them do this very successfully early on in Russell Wilson’s career.
With many good players still left to be had in free agency, I think the Seahawks should shift their focus to players who recently just entered the pool. Primarily because the three players I’m referring to not only fit a need but can be locked up and contribute to this team for years.
Here are three players who just got released that the Seahawks should sign.
