Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Tuesday, March 8 — about your Seattle Seahawks.

Ranking The Top 10 Free Agent Safeties This Offseason

As the NFL offseason starts to heat up, talks of big name free agents finding new homes are beginning to ramp up as well.

But before contracts are inked and new homes are bought, NBC Sports Boston decided to rank this year's top free agents, with a top 10 list for each position.

At safety, our own Quandre Diggs cracked the list at number five.

"Since escaping Detroit, Diggs has made the Pro Bowl at safety in each of his first two full seasons for the Seattle Seahawks," they said. "After coming up with six interceptions in 65 career games for the Lions, Diggs has 13 picks in just 39 appearances for Seattle.

Unfortunately for Diggs, he suffered a broken fibula and a dislocated ankle in the last game of the season for the Seahawks. Given he's still on the right side of 30, Diggs will be in good position to bounce back from injuries; he was at the very least able to make the trip to Las Vegas for the Pro Bowl along with his Seattle teammates."

Diggs recorded a career-high 94 tackles with seven passes defensed, and tied his career-high with five interceptions for the second consecutive season in 2021.
