Who are the Seattle Seahawks 2024 Restricted Free Agents and Exclusive Rights Free Agents?

Restricted rights free agents can have tenders placed on them if Seattle chooses to do so. For instance, Seattle could place a second-round tender on edge rusher Darrell Taylor (I am not saying they should, only using him as an example) and if another team signs Taylor then Seattle would get a first-round choice back in return. This is extremely unlikely to happen.

Should Taylor stick with Seattle after the tender is placed, he could earn $6,822,000 unless the team tries to work out a longer-term deal with him. A second-round tender works the same way but would only cost Seattle $4,890,000. The last tender option is Right of First Refusal which means Seattle could match any offer. This could cost Seattle $2,985,000 if no one offers a deal to the player with this tender.

Seahawks' restricted and exclusive-rights free agents

T Jake Curhan (RFA)
CB Michael Jackson (RFA) (Tendered offer)
LB Jon Rhattigan (RFA) (Tendered offer)
LB Darrell Taylor (RFA) (Re-signed by Seattle)
DE Myles Adams (ERFA) (Seattle has tendered Adams which means he will remain on the roster for 2024
T McClendon Curtis (ERFA)
T Raiqwon O'Neal (ERFA)
LB Joshua Onujiogu (ERFA)
TE Brady Russell (ERFA)

Of the players above, Seattle should probably try to keep Mike Jackson. He has shown to be good in coverage and a solid tackler. He doesn't force many turnovers, however. Taylor has flashed pass-rush potential but is extremely inconsistent.
