Rashawn Jenkins - Seahawks safety

Jenkins has made a good impression so far. He has been funny in interviews with the media and appears to have picked up the defense fairly quickly during OTAs. The reason Jenkins might not stick around past 2024 might not even have anything to do with his quality of play unless he proves to be near-Pro Bowl caliber. Jenkins has a couple of things that he cannot help going against him in 2025.

One is that Jenkins will be 31 years old entering next season. That is not old for a human being, but for an NFL safety, Seattle might be a little nervous that Jenkins could lose half a step. This is seemingly what happened to Quandre Diggs in 2023.

The second problem is that Jenkins was signed to a two-year deal but his 2025 cap hit is higher as well as the saving to release him. His cap number rises to $7.9 million but Seattle could save $5.4 million by moving on from Jenkins. Seattle is already $18,008,836 over the cap in 2025 so the team will have to find savings anywhere they can. Let's just hope Jenkins plays so well that Seattle has no choice but to keep him for his full contract.

Next. DK to Chiefs?. Proposed DK Metcalf trade would be a sad move. dark

Nick Harris - Seahawks center

The hope is that Nick Harris never plays a down in Seattle. If he does that means Olu Oluwatimi has either been injured or inefficient. Either one of those could lead to a long-term problem for Seattle. If Oluwatimi is hurt, hopefully, he is not injured for too long. If he is bad, Seattle needs to draft a center in 2025 and move Oluwatimi to a backup role. Either way, Harris would be out.

Harris has played three seasons in the NFL so far and all with the Cleveland Browns. In those three years, he started four games in total. Two of them came in 2023. According to Pro Football Focus, Harris did not grade poorly in limited reps, especially in terms of pass-blocking. The fact that he never got a chance to start more is telling, though. Cleveland did not want to take a chance on Harris and likely neither will Seattle after 2024.
