The incompletes

DT Al Woods - Signed for one season with the New York Jets

Woods was his normal self in terms of shutting down running games and getting occasional pressure on quarterbacks, but then he ruptured his Achilles tendon in the Jets sixth game of the year and Woods was lost for the year. Since he will be 37 years old this coming offseason, there is a good chance he never plays again.

ST Travis Homer - Signed for two years with the Chicago Bears

Homer was a very good special teamer for the Seahawks in his time in Seattle, but that is all he has been for Chicago. He has only played six snaps on offense. He hasn't been missed in Seattle, though. But if one can earn a living simply by being a special teams player, there is nothing wrong with that.

WR Marquise Goodwin - Signed for one season with the Browns

Goodwin missed a chunk of the season with a concussion and just recently returned. He has also only played 83 snaps this year and has just 3 catches for a measly 10 yards. He showed flashes of being productive in Seattle in 2022, but that might be the highlight for the rest of his career.

DL L.J. Collier - Signed for one season with the Arizona Cardinals

Arizona should have just called up Pete Carroll and said, "We are thinking of signing Collier. What do you think?" To which Carroll likely would have said, "He will miss time with injuries and then be bad when he does play." Collier played 37 snaps for the Cardinals in Week 1 but injured his biceps and is seemingly lost for the season.
