Laviska Shenault will factor in for Seahawks on kickoff returns

The Seattle Seahawks made a free agency move earlier this week when they signed former Jaguars and Panthers receiver Laviska Shenault. Originally a second round pick from the 2020 NFL draft, Shenault has not lived up to being a difference maker for teams’ offensive attack.

However, it seems the Seattle Seahawks are not looking to utilize him in this aspect of the game. Seahawks general manager John Schneider has already confirmed where he will factor in most:

For the past two years, Shenault has been a Carolina Panther. His receiving totals have been minimal, only racking up 37 receptions for 332 yards and one touchdown. But during this time, Carolina did utilize Shenault in the return game – something the Jaguars did not.

So far, Shenault has not proven himself to be much of a difference maker here either. But perhaps a radical change of scenery, moving from the east coast all the way to Seattle, is exactly what he needs to get his career back on track.
