Although the 2024 NFL season has yet to officially commence, it's always worth looking towards the future. If you're new Seattle Seahawks head coach Mike MacDonald and you're trying to decide on cuts to trim your roster down to the magic number, 53, it may be smart to consider who will or won't be back for the next couple of years. Also, if a player is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2025, you may choose a player under contract for a longer period to get the more valuable reps.

According to Spotrac, the Seahawks have 33 players who are set to become free agents after this season. Some of these 33 players are guys signed to non-guaranteed one-year deals -- undrafted free agents looking to find a job in the NFL. But some of them are starters and players that the Seahawks must make a difficult decision on next season.

Among the 33 pending free agents are guys like Julian Love, Tre Brown, and Jerome Baker. These are all guys the Seahawks will likely rely on this season and will hope to have back in 2025. However, there are also multiple players who are on the brink of losing their roster spot in Seattle and may not return after the 2024 season. Here are five pending free agents that likely will not return in 2025.

K'Von Wallace - Seattle Seahawks safety

K'Von Wallace signed a one-year $1.5 million deal with Seattle this spring after the team cut both their starting safeties. Wallace, 27 years old, has bounced around the league since being drafted in the fourth round by Philadelphia in 2020. After playing mostly special teams in his first few seasons in Philadelphia, Wallace started a handful of games in Arizona and Tennessee.

Wallace was a serviceable safety, but never really flashed on the field. He will likely serve as a depth piece behind Julian Love and fellow new safety Rayshawn Jenkins and will see the field most often on special teams, barring any injuries. However, the mantra the Seahawks always tout is "Always Compete" -- and Wallace should have a shot to compete for playing time this season.

But I don't believe Wallace will play himself into a second contract with Seattle. Julian Love will also be a free agent in 2025 and I don't believe Seattle would bring back both Love and Wallace. It would make a lot more sense, barring a disastrous year for Love, to bring the younger, more impactful Love back than to re-sign a likely backup.
