The NFL postseason for the Seattle Seahawks starts up this Saturday against the Los Angeles Rams.
For the Seahawks, this will be the third time these two teams have met up this season.
Obviously, this game is much different from the other two, as this is a win or go home situation for both teams.
This Saturday could be the Seahawks last game of the season, or they could go as late as February 7, it really depends on how the Seahawks will perform during this run.
Whether the team stops playing on Saturday or not, they will have about 23 unrestricted free agents when the offseason kicks off.
Out of those roughly two dozen players that are set to be unrestricted free agents, a lot of them have not even seen action all season long.
Those names include Phillip Dorsett, Josh Gordon, Branden Jackson, Lane Hill, and Geno Smith.
On the other side, there are a few names that will be free agents that are very much key members of the team.
Names on that list include K.J. Wright, Chris Carson, Greg Olsen, Mike Iupati, Ethan Pocic, David Moore, and Shaquill Griffin.
Those names in particular have all been important pieces in this team’s chemistry, and the offseason will be an important one to see who the Seahawks will bring back.
Four of those players that are listed above made the PFF list of the top 100 2021 free agents to be.
Here are the four with their rankings:
- CB Shaquill Griffin - 36
- CB Quinton Dunbar - 52
- RB Chris Carson - 57
- LB K.J. Wright - 65
The Seahawks have not made any official announcement on who they will bring back. Of course, that is more for the offseason.
The hope would be to bring Wright, Griffin, and Dunbar back. It would also be great to see Carson back, but he has dealt with injuries in the past.
All of it will have to be played out once the season is over, and the Seahawks will have to keep an eye on the salary cap and how that will drop next season.
For now, all fans can do is sit back and enjoy the Seahawks' last few games before the offseason starts for the tea.
