Devon Witherspoon discusses Seahawks’ transition at head coach

Seahawks second-year cornerback Devon Witherspoon didn’t speak with the media much last season, which is the case for all rookies. We should get to hear from him more this year and on Wednesday we got a sample when Witherspoon had his first press conference as a member of the team.

Here’s what Witherspoon had to say about going from Pete Carroll to Mike Macdonald as head coach.

Witherspoon will be a key component of Macdonald’s defense in Year 1. Last season he split time at the left boundary and in the slot, where he really shined as a disruptive playmaker. If the Seahawks can manage to add a promising young left corner in the draft it would free Spoon to wreak havoc in the slot full-time. That’s one of many angles we will be watching in next week’s 2024 NFL draft.

Either way, we are eagerly looking forward to what Witherspoon does in Year 2. If he can improve on his tackling he will soon be one of the best defensive backs in the league.
