Last year, the Seattle Seahawks surprised everyone, and maybe even some of their own fan base, if they're being honest.

Led by a late breakout from Geno Smith, the offense soared to heights nobody though was possible without Russell Wilson. With Seattle shocking the football world and also boasting a ton of young talent, it looks like this roster is set up for success.

For 2023, this team is even more loaded at key positions. There are going to be some difficult decisions made by coaches in the coming weeks and months, but a few players in particular should know the writing is already on the wall.

There are three players, specifically, that might be cut before they're even allowed to see the field.

Griffin Hebert, TE

The first player who could be on his way out before getting a real shot is former Louisiana Tech tight end Griffin Hebert, who joined the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent this year.

Seattle has Noah Fant starting at tight end, of course, along with veteran Will Dissly getting a lot of run as well. Both of those guys are locked in as two key players within this offense and should get their fair share of targets.

Beyond Fant and Dissly, the Seahawks have 2020 fourth-round pick Colby Parkinson who should have the third spot comfortably cemented. Parkinson rounds out the top three for Seattle, who probably won't keep more than that. But, if they did, the Seahawks would probably roll with Tyler Mabry who has been mostly a practice squad staple in Seattle for a few years now.

Behind those four are a pair of undrafted free agents: Hebert and Noah Gindorff. Neither of these guys, quite frankly, will have much of a shot.
