Seahawks’ in-house free agents

Before we head to free agency to wine and dine future Seahawks, we are going to decide which pending Seahawks unrestricted and restricted free agents.

Retaining or Re-signing

Ryan Neal (RFA): Seattle keeps him on a 2nd round tender, good for $4.3 million.

Marquise Goodwin (UFA): A surprise stud #3 receiver this season before getting hurt, we’re keeping the Geno/Smith connection alive on a 1-year deal for $2 million.

Rashaad Penny (UFA): The ultimate boom or bust running back, Penny and the Seahawks once again agree to a win-win deal for 1 year and $4 mil. Seattle adds a top 5 running back in the league when healthy with Kenneth Walker, and Penny gets probably one last chance to have a massive season and look for a 2024 payday.

ERFAs retained: Michael Jackson, Isaiah Mack, Myles Adams, Jon Rhattigan, Cody Thompson, and Godwin Igwebuike

Notables Not Returning

Poona Ford: Was a fun player, but not worth the price he was making and his fit is questionable.

Bruce Irvin: A fun player that was somewhat productive in 2022. I expect him to retire unless the Seahawks are faced with multiple injuries along the defensive front.

Drew Lock: We’ll never know how good or bad he would’ve been. He’ll likely sign as a stop-gap QB in Tampa Bay.

LJ Collier and Cody Barton: You’re welcome

After we have made decisions on all of our in-house moves, the Seahawks are looking at $31.58 million in space.
