2024 free agents signed by the Seattle Seahawks

The league year officially begins on Wednesday, March 13, at 1 pm PT. The legal tampering period began on Monday. Many free agents won't sign until after the first week of free agency so if Seattle has not spent all that much money, that is what they normally do and it is not a concern.

Because lots of places on social media might intentionally mislead or not have the correct information, we will wait to update this list until the reports have been confirmed by reporters who can be trusted. This is the first free agency period since 2010 where general manager John Schneider has had the final say in all roster moves so Seattle may handle free agency a little differently (though that was not the case early in the free agency period for Seattle).

Seattle signed defensive lineman Johnathan Hankins. Hankins is a veteran defensive tackle who should help against the run. Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

The Seahawks reportedly signed defensive back K'Von Wallace to a one-year deal. He can play either safety spot and got 12 starts in 2023. He has allowed multiple seasons of passer ratings greater than 127, however.

Seattle added linebacker Jerome Baker, formerly of the Miami Dolphins. Baker's contract terms were not released right away. He does have the ability to chase down quarterback, though.

The Seahawks signed offensive lineman Tremayne Anchrum for depth, one would hope. He has played three years in the league with the Los Angeles Rams but only started one game and has 101 total snaps. That doesn't scream starter(!).

Seattle's first signing from another team was tight end Pharaoh Brown. His deal is for just one year and a max of $3.9 million. Seattle will be Brown's sixth team since 2017. He is a good blocker but does not do much in terms of catching the ball.

According to Jordan Schultz (but oddly not Ian Rapoport or Adam Schefter), Seattle will add linebacker Tyrel Dodson. Dodson was the top-graded linebacker in 2023, according to Pro Football Focus. This should turn out to be a huge win for the Seahawks.

According to Tom Pelissero, Seattle is signing backup offensive lineman Nick Harris, formerly of the Cleveland Browns. The deal is for one year and a max of $3,26 million. Harris played most of his snaps at center in 2023 and was a better pass-blocker than run-blocker. He played college at the University of Washington.

According to Tom Pelissero, the Seahawks are bringing back a familiar face. Offensive lineman George Fant will return. Fant has started quite a bit since he left Seattle several years ago so one might wonder if he is a Plan B in case Abe Lucas cannot stay healthy.

Pelissero also reported that safety Rayshawn Jenkins is signing with Seattle. Jenkins is a bit underwhelming of a player. Perhaps Schneider and Macdonald see his potential more clearly.
