Free agent target No. 1 - Safety Geno Stone

The Baltimore Ravens just let safety Geno Stone become a free agent. Could the Seahawks reunite him with head coach Mike Macdonald? Stone played for Macdonald for two seasons in Baltimore and was quite productive in 2023. He had seven interceptions last year, along with nine passes defensed, and 68 total tackles. Stone has made a name for himself after being selected as a seventh-round pick at 219th overall back in 2020.

Per Spotrac, Geno Stone's market value sits at $7.2 million a year with an expected contract of 3yrs/$21.6 million. With the money the Seahawks just saved after cutting Quandre Diggs and Jamal Adams, Geno Stone looks like a potential bargain for the Seahawks at safety. Considering Seattle was paying Diggs an average of $13 million a year and Adams $17.6 million a year. With Stone's knowledge of Macdonald's defense, the Seahawks should not pass up the opportunity to sign him.

There are several safeties on the free agent market this off-season who were cut from their teams that Seattle could sign in addition to Stone. Not only did the Seahawks cut safeties Jamal Adams and Quandre Diggs, but also Justin Simmons (was cut by Denver), Jordan Poyer (got released by the Bills), and Kevin Byard (was let go by the Eagles). In total, over $100 million in safeties have been cut this off-season, which means the Seahawks can find other bargains on top of signing Geno Stone. If they feel the need to add more depth to the position.
