3 Low-Cost Free Agent Steals the Seahawks Can Still Sign
By Larry Rupp
Training camp is on the horizon for NFL teams and there are still a number of free agents left unsigned. The Seattle Seahawks head into the 2021 season hoping to make the playoffs once again, but could benefit from using the cap space they have left to find some steals on the market.
Specifically, the Seahawks offense could take advantage of free agency to build depth at the skill positions. With that in mind, here are three low-cost steals the Seahawks can still sign.
1. Le'Veon Bell, RB
The Seahawks running back spot is locked up by Chris Carson, but he has dealt with his fair share of injuries over the years. In 2020, Carson missed four games and the Seahawks struggled to put together a viable running game with backups DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer. Le'Veon Bell could be a great option here given his experience of being a workhorse in the past. Bell is a veteran ball carrier that averages 4.1 yards per carry in his career and is also a great pass-catcher. Plus, he has been adamant before about his want to join a contending team.
2. Kenny Stills, WR
Another position the Seahawks could use some more depth at is wide receiver. Seattle did draft D'Wayne Eskridge in the second round, but he may need time to adjust to an NFL level of play. Adding a veteran pass-catcher like Kenny Stills to the mix would give quarterback Russell Wilson another dangerous weapon to target on offense. Stills averages 15.6 yards per reception in his career and has put up at least 500 receiving yards in two of the last three seasons. His proficient route-running abilities would fit in well in Seattle and he wouldn't cost much to sign.
3. Trey Burton, TE
There are still some question marks regarding the tight end position on the Seahawks roster. They signed Gerald Everett earlier this offseason, but Will Dissly reportedly may still be the team's starter next year. Everett has started just 11 of the 61 games he has played in and Dissly totaled just 251 receiving yards last season. Meanwhile, Trey Burton has showcased that he can be a reliable target when involved in a prolific passing attack. He has 903 receiving yards over the last three seasons in addition to 9 touchdowns. He would become an immediate red-zone threat on this team.
