Seahawks targets from Buccaneers and Jaguars
The Seahawks were decimated early in the season on their safety position with the injury to Jamaal Adams. Much of the heavy lifting was put on Quandre Diggs, and he was able to handle it admirably, however, let’s be real here, he alone proved that it was too much to ask of him this season. With Adams, the key is always his health and adding Keanu Neal to the fold, it will ease some concerns, that if Adams has to miss games, on who will be able to step up to replace him?
Neal is an integral part of the Bucs defense this season, this team would have been far worse than their ugly record if not for their defense. But let me digress, the Seahawks can count on Neal if they decide to get him to be able to help them improve in all aspects that they lack this season on defense. Keanu Neal is just 2 seasons removed from 100 total tackles, so it is not an outside possibility he can come back to that form and be able to produce the same numbers for the Seahawks.
An aspect of the Seahawks’ defense that they will need to address is their cornerback position. The emergence of probable Defensive Player of the Year Tariq Woolen is a great welcome for the Seahawks this season. Even with his phenomenal year, we cannot neglect that this young man is still a rookie, he might flourish to be a superstar in the making, but he might regress next season, it is anyone’s guess. To prevent such sophomore regression, it is in the best interest of Seattle to add another CB to their locker room full of rookies.
Although Herndon only has this season playing full time, he had been with the Jaguars since 2018, and that will be beneficial for the young corners for the Seahawks as his age gap is not far away from this group. Tre’s youthful experience can greatly help further the development of Tariq Woolen and Coby Bryant if he will find his way to signing with the Seahawks this offseason.
