But major free agent transfers at this point may have to wait until training camp. When teams have a clearer picture of which gaps to fill – or when vacancies arise due to injuries and other factors.

Now’s a good time to take a look at what the Seahawks have been doing in free agency and what they could be doing in the future, all in a handy Q&A format.

How many free agents have the Seahawks signed from other teams?

Seattle signed six unrestricted free agents. Five defensive players cornerbacks Justin Coleman and outside linebacker Uchenna Nwosu, and inside linebacker Joel Iyiegbuniwe, Artie Burns, defensive linebacker Quinton Jefferson in March. Nwosu and Jefferson each signed a two-year deal that places them in the team’s top 17 in the salary cap this season (Nwosu is seventh at $6,295 million and Jefferson is 17th at $3.515 million), the other three received one-year contracts.

Seattle also signed an offensive player, centre Austin Blythe, for a one-year, $4 million cap, 15th on the team.

But the total spend pales in comparison to what Seattle spends on some of its own players, leaving the Seahawks more focused for another year on rewarding some of their own players in free agency (but it’s important to note that the Seahawks have also made three major trades for QB Drew Lock, TE Noah Fant and DL Shelby Harris via Russell Wilson).

Which FAs of their own did Seattle re-sign?

Of the 15 players who became clear free managers in March. Seattle has re-signed six safety Quandre Diggs, cornerback Sidney Jones, defensive challenge Al Woods, tight end Will Dissly, running back Rashad Penny, and quarterback Geno Smith.

Everyone has a salary cap of $3.46 million or more this year, placing them in the top 19 teams this season, led by the Diggs ($5.8 million, No. 9), Penny ($5.47 million, No. 10), and Dissly ($459) $10,000, No. 11).

Which of their free agents are signed elsewhere?

Of the 15 players who became UFA players in March, five signed away – OLs Ethan Pocic (Browns) and CB D.J. Reed (Jets)) and D.L. Rasheem Green (Texans), Jamarco Jones (Titans), and TE Gerald Everett (Chargers).

Some other players were unconfined and became street-free agents, most notably LB Bobby Wagner (signed to Rams) and DLs Kerry, Carlos Dunlap (unsigned), Hyder (49ers), and Benson Mayowa (unsigned). This difference is relevant because only the UFA is included in the compensating forage harvest calculation.

With the design deadline over, the Seahawks should not be given any draft picks by 2023, according to As their external FA endorsements fit the formula and make up for the lost points.

Which Seattle UFAs Have Not Been Signed Yet?

Four Offensive forwards defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche, Duane Brown, and Brandon Shell, and retreating Alex Collins.

Given what Seattle has done to fill those positions in the service/exemption, no one wants to come back now or at least not unless something happens along the way to create demand.

Brown is the second-highest-rated player in’s top 100 unsigned free agents and 14th overall, behind only catcher Odell Beckham Jr., who sustained an ACL injury in the Super Bowl.

As previously mentioned, Dunlap and Mayowa, both technically street-free agents, are also unsigned.

Where is the Free Agency Spending in Seattle?

Thanks in large part to their own re-signing of Diggs, Penny, and Dissly. The Seahawks have the highest spend on free desks in the NFL this year according to the most common stats.

Through, Seattle has ranked 15th this off-season with $124.17 million in totally free agency spend, 16th with $55.145 million in total guarantees, and has an average annual salary of $4.528 million per player in US dollars from free agencies, ranked No. 8.

What is the current state of the cap in Seattle?

Free agency spending, acquisitions in Wilson’s trade (basically equivalent to what Seattle gets by trading Wilson), and design have eaten up most of the team’s cap space.

As of Tuesday, the Seahawks had $6.39 million in effective cap space in the off-market, 16th in the NFL. But if Dunlap’s contract officially expires on June 2. That will add $5.1 million to roughly $11.5 million. Which would be eighth in the NFL as of today, signifying Seattle’s future. There is a certain flexibility in the movement. However, some can also be used as part of the DK Metcalf receiver extension. NFL London Fans can buy Seahawks Vs Buccaneers Tickets from our website.

Are there any free agents worth pursuing?

Many of the remaining top players are either older (like Brown) or recovering from injury (like Beckham).

The biggest name to fall into neither category is cornerback James Bradbury. But he will earn a solid salary Spotrac estimates him at $12 million a year. The Seahawks appear to have invested in their young player in the corner.
