Seahawks Free Agency Tracker

With the different moves the Seahawks have made since the start of free agency, it's easy to have missed out on some of the moves. Here is a tracker of all the moves, including players who have left, re-signed and new players picked up by the Seahawks.

John Schneider Talks Free Agency and QB Trade

General manager and president of football operations, John Schneider, joined his weekly radio show on Thursday to break down the different free agency moves the Seahawks have made.

Along with re-signing, tight end Noah Fant and defensive end Leonard Williams, the Seahawks agreed to terms with the Washington Commanders on a trade for quarterback Sam Howell.

"We were kind of sweating that this morning talking to the Commanders and Adam Peters, their general manager. We were sweating that out, there were several teams involved with it. Sam's a football player, I think that's the best way to describe it. I know everybody saw him play out here, he had a great day against us this past fall. He's a quarterback, but he's really a football player, that's what I love about him. Really tough, young, he's 23 years old and has 18 starts in the league already. He's the same age as (Jayden) Daniels from LSU, (Spencer) Rattler, and (Michael) Penix, and he's a year younger than Bo Nix. We're just really excited to be able to acquire him. We know he's a serious dude, he's into it, he works his tail off, we got great reviews on him, and we loved him coming out of college. We're happy to get him in the mix. Geno is the guy, and Sam will be backing him up."

Schneider was asked what the situation would be in the quarterback room after adding Howell, he added ""Well I'm sure there's competition, but it's not like we're signing him to go and compete with Geno to be the starter. But he's going to be giving it a run, he's a competitive guy."

With former Seahawks linebackers Jordyn Brooks, Bobby Wagner and Devin Bush leaving in free agency, the Seahawks were in need at that position. On Thursday, the Seahawks signed linebacker Tyrel Dodson. Bob Condotta talks about the deal and what it means for the Seahawks.

"Dodson finished with the No. 1 grade of all linebackers from Pro Football Focus as he finally saw significant starting experience."

Pro Football Focus graded Dodson as the only linebacker above 83.0 for the 2023 season.
