Seattle Seahawks should sign DT Poona Ford

Will the Seahawks retain Leonard Williams? I think one would certainly hope so given the draft capital they gave up to get him. If he is brought back, it wouldn't be the worst idea to also consider bringing back Poona Ford. He was one of the brighter spots even though he was a part of a defensive line that struggled to stop the run.

Jarran Reed blossomed last season when he made his return to Seattle. Why can't we see something similar with Ford? Again, the Seahawks can most likely bring him back on a 1-year contract that is not worth a lot of money. The former Big-12 defensive player of the year knows what it's like to be doubted. He was un-drafted before Seattle signed him and that chip-on-the-shoulder mentality will blend in nicely with Macdonald's defense.

Seattle Seahawks should sign S Ryan Neal

One of the bigger storylines for this Seahawks team entering this off-season was the QB position. While it seems like that has been put to bed, the rest of my attention goes to the safety room. It feels as if anything is possible. Jamal Adams is pointed to as the obvious casualty. Given his injury history and lack of production in coverage, many feel he is no longer worth the price tag that he carries along with him.

But, is it possible the Seahawks cut him and Quandre Diggs? It certainly would free up a lot of space. Perhaps my favorite consideration of them all, the idea of bringing back Ryan Neal makes too much sense. He made a name for himself in Seattle, displaying his versatility when filling in for the injured Adams. I know I am beating a dead horse here, but Macdonald loves a safety who can do it all. Ryan Neal fits the bill and will be playing under a significantly cheaper contract than that of Adams and Diggs.
