The Seattle Seahawks are in a rare position heading into Week 11. At 3-6 their chances of making the playoffs are grim (16%) even with an extra seed this year. It’s impossible to count them out once Russell Wilson gets healthy and back up to full speed. However, it’s also time to start thinking about the future and how to improve this roster next year via free agency and the draft. The good news is the team’s salary cap situation isn’t too bad.

Here is a review of the team’s dead cap hits for 2021. All salary numbers are courtesy of Over the Cap.
