Seahawks 2024 Free Agency Tracker

Keeping track of all the Seahawks’ moves in free agency.


With free agency underway, here at, we'll be tracking all the Seahawks' comings and goings in free agency, and will update this article as moves become official throughout the next couple of weeks.

The Seahawks made some moves prior to the start of the new league year, freeing up cap space by releasing veterans Quandre Diggs, Jamal Adams, Will Dissly, Nick Bellore and Bryan Mone, then using some of that added flexibility to re-sign defensive end Leonard Williams and tight end Noah Fant before they officially became free agents.

Free Agents Retained

What it means: The Seahawks made it a priority to keep Williams, who they acquired in a trade with the Giants last season, and they got a deal done before the start of the league year, with Williams signing on Tuesday. Williams provides playmaking ability in the running game and as a pass rusher, and can play multiple positions along the defensive front.

What it means: Heading into the week, all three of last season's top tight ends—Fant, Colby Parkinson and Will Dissly—were free agents or about to become free agents, so keeping Fant, the team's most productive tight end the past two years, is significant for the offense.

What it means: Taylor, who has 21.5 sacks over three seasons, is back, giving the Seahawks another quality edge-rusher along with Boye Mafe, Uchenna Nwosu and second-year outside linebacker Derick Hall. Seattle signed Taylor before the deadline to tender him as a restricted free agent.

What it means: While Jackson could still sign with another team, giving the Seahawks a fifth-round pick as compensation, the most likely scenario is that he will be back, having been tendered as a restricted free agent, a move that keeps the Seahawks deep at cornerback, a position of strength last year.

What it means: Again, as a restricted free agent, Rhattigan could still sign an offer sheet elsewhere, which the Seahawks would have the option to match, but assuming he is back, the former undrafted free agent out of Army gives the Seahawks a core special teams player who can also provide depth at inside linebacker.

What it means: The Seahawks are keeping their cornerback group from 2023 intact, and in Burns they're bringing back a versatile defensive back who can play nickel corner or outside, and can also help on special teams.

Free Agent Additions

What it means: A playmaker who started every game for the Jaguars over the past two seasons, Jenkins gives the Seahawks a strong option to start alongside Julian Love at safety following last week's release of Quandre Diggs and Jamal Adams.

What it means: Harris, a former UW standout, gives the Seahawks an option to compete at center while also having the versatility to play guard. With last year's starter, Evan Brown, leaving in free agency, Harris could very well find himself competing with Olu Oluwatimi for the starting job at center.

What it means: With two of the team's top tight ends from last season moving on in free agency, Brown gives the Seahawks some needed depth at the position along with Noah Fant, who re-signed on Tuesday. Brown is best known as a blocking tight end but also showed some big-play ability as a pass catcher last season, and he should also make big contributions on special teams.

What it means: The man who made the phrase "No. 74 is eligible" popular in Seattle is back, and he gives the Seahawks a quality depth option with plenty of starting experience at both tackle spots, and who obviously can also come in as a big tight end in six-lineman packages.

What it means: After losing Jordyn Brooks and Bobby Wagner in free agency, the Seahawks needed to add help at linebacker, and in Dodson they're getting a players with starting experience and with upside. While he wasn't an every-down player last year with the Bills, Dodson did start 10 games and finished the season as Pro Football Focus' highest-graded inside linebacker.

What it means: Anchrum, 25, spent his first four seasons as a backup guard with the Rams, who drafted him in seventh round of the 2020 draft, and will come to Seattle looking to compete for a bigger role. The Seahawks will likely continue to look to add to the competition at guard, but Anchrum gives them a young player with versatility—he was a tackle at Clemson—to add to the mix.

What it means: Not long after signing Dodson, the Seahawks added another starting-caliber linebacker in Baker, who spent the first six seasons of his career in Miami, starting 82 games. The Seahawks certainly can still add to the position via free agency or in the draft, but by signing Dodson and Baker, they have strong options to fill the starting jobs heading into 2024.

What it means: The 6-foot-2, 320-pound Hankins gives the Seahawks a lot of size and experience—he has started 134 games in an 11-year career—to add to the defensive line rotation. Having most recently played in Dallas, Hankins worked with new Seahawks defensive coordinator Aden Durde, who was the defensive line coach during Hankins' two seasons with the Cowboys.

What it means: By signing Wallace, a versatile safety who started 12 games last season with the Titans and Cardinals, the Seahawks add another player to compete for playing time in the back end of the defense having also signed Rayshawn Jenkins last week. Mike Macdonald's defense used plenty of three-safety looks in Baltimore so there's a good chance Julian Love, Jenkins and Wallace all see plenty of playing time. Jenkins should also be a factor on special teams, having played a big role in that phase of the game throughout his career with the Eagles, Titans and Cardinals.

What it means: The Seahawks are adding a versatile offensive weapon by signing the former second-round pick out of Colorado, and even more depth to what is already one of their deeper positions. Shenault also could be a factor on special teams, having returned kickoffs the past two seasons with the Panthers.

Free Agents Lost

LB Bobby Wagner (Commanders)

What it means: Combined with the departure of Jordyn Brooks, Wagner signing with Washington means the Seahawks need to replace both starting inside linebackers from last season. From a bigger-picture perspective, this signing means the Seahawks and their fans are, for the second time in two years, saying farewell to one of the greatest players in franchise history.

LB Jordyn Brooks (Dolphins)

What it means: The Seahawks are losing a playmaker in Brooks, who had 456 tackles 21 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks over the past three seasons, and as mentioned above with Wagner, the Seahawks now have a real need when it comes to off-ball linebackers.

TE Will Dissly (Chargers)

What it means: The Seahawks released Dissly last week, and he didn't take long to find a new home, landing with the Chargers and their new head coach, Jim Harbaugh. The Seahawks will look quite a bit different at tight end than they have the past couple of years, but retaining Fant and the addition of Pharaoh Brown does give the Seahawks a good start at that position to start the offseason.

G Damien Lewis (Panthers)

What it means: Lewis, a four-year starter, provided a physical presence at guard, and leaves the Seahawks needing to replace at least one starter on their interior line, perhaps more depending on what happens with center Evan Brown and guard Phil Haynes in free agency, though they do have two rookies who got experience last year in center Olu Oluwatimi and guard Anthony Bradford, both of whom will be candidates for starting jobs in 2024.

TE Colby Parkinson (Rams)

What it means: With Will Dissly signing with the Chargers and Parkinson also leaving, the Seahawks have lost two of their top three tight ends from the past two seasons, but they were able to keep Noah Fant while also adding Pharoah Brown. For Parkinson, the signing is something of a homecoming for the Southern California native.

RB DeeJay Dallas (Cardinals)

What it means: While the Seahawks will still feel good about their running back depth with Kenneth Walker III, Zach Charbonnet and Kenny McIntosh all back, losing Dallas does leave a void on special teams, where Dallas was a big factor as a returner and on coverage teams.

QB Drew Lock (Giants)

What it means: First and foremost, it means the Seahawks need a new backup quarterback, as Geno Smith is currently the only one of the team. Schneider noted last month at the NFL Scouting Combine that he isn't proud of his history of not drafting quarterbacks in Seattle—the Seahawks have only selected two in his 14 drafts—so perhaps this is the year he changes that trend, or perhaps the Seahawks look to find a backup in free agency. For Lock, heading to New York could represent a better chance at playing time, particularly early in the season with starter Daniel Jones coming back from a torn ACL suffered midway through the 2020 season.

DL Mario Edwards Jr. (Texans)

What it means: Edwards was a solid addition to the defensive line rotation in 2023, so the Seahawks will need to replace his playing time. That being said, the Seahawks are in solid shape on their defensive line having re-signed Leonard Williams and with Dre'Mont Jones and Jarran Reed coming back. The Seahawks will also be looking to get more out of 2023 draft picks Cameron Young and Mike Morris, and will no doubt continue to look to add to that position group.

C Evan Brown (Cardinals)

What it means: With Brown, who started all but one game at center, and Damien Lewis both leaving in free agency, and with Phil Haynes still a free agent, the Seahawks will have a very different looking interior line in 2024. Olu Oluwatimi, who started one game as a rookie, and free-agent addition Nick Harris are the two most likely candidates to take over for Brown as things currently stand, though the Seahawks could of course still add to that position in the draft or free agency.

Seahawks agreed to terms with safety Rayshawn Jenkins on Wednesday, March 13, 2024. Jenkins is an eight year veteran from the University of Miami that has played for the Chargers and Jaguars.
