One of the most entertaining parts of the NFL offseason is upon us. Besides the NFL draft, nothing is bigger than the free agency period. For 12s, this means watching their favorite team, the Seattle Seahawks, do next to nothing early on in free agency and that’s OK. Seattle has overall been quite successful since 2010 by following general manager John Schneider and head coach/Vice President of Football Operation Pete Carroll’s philosophy of not overspending on veteran players.
Seattle has mostly been good because they have had some really successful drafts (yes, they have had some bad ones since 2010 as well but the years that have been good have been very good) and landed a player (like Jadaveon Clowney or Duane Brown) in a trade. But maybe Schneider and Carroll don’t get the respect for the players they don’t sign or re-sign in free agency. Basically, free agency is still very important to the Seahawks because of not only who they sign but who they don’t sign.
2023 could be different. While we know Seattle will be re-signing their quarterback – more on that in just a bit – the team still likely has enough cap room to sign an impact free agent. Will they? Probably not, but there is always hope. Here is what the status is for Seahawks’ free agency happens to be currently.
