The biggest splash the Seattle Seahawks made in early free agency was re-signing defensive lineman Leonard Williams. Williams was almost a must to bring back as Seattle had used a second-round pick on him during the 2023 season to trade for Williams. He was very good for the team in the second half of this past season.

Seattle also re-signed tight end Noah Fant who should be a great fit in new offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb's scheme. Fant could easily have his best season in the league. That is the hope anyway.

But the hope many 12s might have had that Seattle would be aggressive in free agency this offseason has been dashed. There are still a number of quality players available that would help Seattle next season. Here are three of those players.

Seattle Seahawks should go after safety Kamren Curl

Kamren Curl is the safety answer to former Seattle running back Chris Carson only Curl stays healthier. Both players far outplayed their draft status as both were seventh-round picks. Carson became an instant starter in Seattle and his bullish running style helped set the tone for what Seattle tried (and mostly failed) to do offensively, though any failure was not the fault of Carson. Washington's defense underperformed in 2023 but none of that should be blamed on Curl.

The 25-year-old safety is able to play either free or strong safety and does both well. He has an understanding of what tackling angles to take and he can also play the deep end of the field. He is not going to create as many turnovers as Quandre Diggs did for the Seahawks but Curl is an upgrade over Diggs because of his youth and overall ability.

Signing Curl might cost the team as much as $11 million per season, but if Seattle inks Curl to a three-or-four-year deal, he will definitely be worth the money. Plus, pairing Curl with Love could give Seattle one of the most consistently good safety duos in the league.
