Seahawks from Bills and Dolphins
There is one big issue the Seahawks must address this offseason, and it is their interior defense. Seattle, all season had been running over by their opponents on the ground, and they cannot seem to stop any of them. The Seahawks must address this concern right away, and they have to do the best they can to try to land Tremaine Edmunds this offseason.
Losing long-time and Seahawks legend linebacker Bobby Wagner this season proved to be costly for the Seahawks and it showed. Adding Edmunds will mitigate that concerns for the Seahawks moving forward and will definitely be welcome for their safety and secondary. It is no surprise that the Buffalo Bills had been having success against the run every season, and it starts with Tremaine Edmunds.
From inside to outside we go. As much as the Seahawks are in bad need of addressing their run defense, the same can be said with their pass rushers. Darrell Taylor and Uchenna Nwosu had a good year having to record identical 9.5 sacks, but other than them, no one else had more than 5.5 sacks. Adding Melvin Ingram, who recorded 6.0 sacks this season, to this defensive group can help both stopping the run, and attacking the passer.
Having Ingram’s versatility will create more chances for the Seahawks’ defense to force more turnovers in their favor of them. His addition will also help Seattle’s secondary, which is relatively young at the position of cornerback. There are a ton of areas to fix in this defense and understand that adding Ingram alone does not immediately solve all those concerns, but it will be a good starting point.
