Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks did a good job of re-signing their most important free agent DT Leonard Williams. Seattle accomplished that by cutting S Quandre Diggs, S Jamal Adams, and TE Will Dissly. Freeing up enough cap space to re-sign Leonard Williams to a 3-year/$64,500,000 deal. While bringing back Williams was likely the best move Seattle made this off-season, prioritizing his re-signing put getting Jordyn Brooks re-signed on the back burner, as Brooks left to join the Dolphins.

Although the Seahawks were unable to bring back Jordyn Brooks, they did re-sign TE Noah Fant. As well as adding C Nick Harris, signing T George Fant, and trading a third-round pick to Washington for QB Sam Howell. The Seahawks also restructured Tyler Lockett's contract to make room to sign more players. Which allowed Seattle to pursue two linebackers to replace Jordyn Brooks and Bobby Wagner. As the Seahawks signed Tyrel Dodson and Jerome Baker with the extra cash they had to spend.

Plus the Seahawks still had enough money to sign a tight end to replace starter Will Dissly, with the signing of TE Pharoh Brown. Even after all those moves, the Seahawks were able to add DT Jonathan Hankins, DB K'Von Wallace, G Tremayne Anchrum, S Rayshawn Jenkins, and CB Artie Burns. Seahawks GM John Schneider has been active this off-season subtracting and then adding to his roster, shaping a new team for coach Mike Macdonald. Making moves to change the Seahawks roster for the better.

Offseason grade: B+
