The Seattle Seahawks are releasing Carlos Dunlap, saving the organization about $14 million in cap space. While he's not quite the player he was at his peak, the 32-year-old proved he's still got something left in the tank.

Now that he's hitting the open market, here are the three most likely destinations for Dunlap in free agency.

Carlos Dunlap Free Agency

3. Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers generated pressure at the sixth-lowest rate in the league last season. Part of the reason for that lackluster performance was a significant decline from Preston Smith, who the team might move on from this offseason. Dunlap would be a solid replacement and bring a veteran presence to this group if the cap-strapped Packers can ink him to a cheap deal.

2. Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills need to improve their pass-rushing unit. The team generated pressure at a bottom-10 rate last year. It's hard to win a Super Bowl with a pass-rush like that. Adding Dunlap could be a nice, low-cost way to bolster that unit. And the Bills give the former Bengal a real shot at a Super Bowl ring, which has to be appealing to the 12-year veteran.

1. Seattle Seahawks

Yes, Seattle just released him. But reports have indicated both sides have a mutual interest in working out a new deal. Given the impact he had on this defense, that should come as no surprise. If the Seahawks can ink him to a team-friendly contract, he'd be a big addition.
