Seahawks should sign center Ben Jones

The Seahawks are in desperate need of a center after the retirement of Austin Blythe. Another Seattle center, Kyle Fuller, is still unsigned as free agent. Seattle greatly improved their offensive line last season with the additions of Charles Cross and Abraham Lucas through the 2022 draft. However, the departure of Blythe leaves a huge hole at center for the Seahawks.

Ben Jones was a major key to the running game success of the Tennessee Titans last season. Jones would be a good fit with the identity Pete Carroll likes to have on offense. The Seahawks need to make a play to acquire Jones as the center position this year. It will be very beneficial to further the development of Kenneth Walker III and the running game if Seattle can sign a veteran center like Jones who knows all about efficient blocking to help the run game.

While there are other holes the Seahawks must address, however, the center position is also one that the team must focus on this offseason. By adding a proven center, Seattle can afford to take a center in a later round in this year’s rookie draft and assess him behind Jones. Using an early draft pock in this year’s draft on a center will not immediately help the Seahawks this season as they will be missing out on some impactful players on the defensive side of the ball.
