Seahawks meeting with free agent LB Jerome Baker today

One of the biggest questions the Seattle Seahawks have faced thus far in the offseason has been “who is going to play linebacker for them?” With Bobby Wagner headed to the Washington Commanders, and Jordyn Brooks taking his talents to the South Beach, Seattle’s linebacker room has suddenly become rather empty.

The Seahawks did manage to help restock this particular cupboard last night. Former Bills linebacker Tyrel Dodson was signed after starting 10 games and appearing in all 17 for Buffalo last season. Now it seems Seattle has their eyes set on another former AFC East linebacker: Jerome Baker.

After entering into the league as a third round pick in the 2018 NFL draft, Baker has been a lifelong Miami Dolphin. For the first time in his career, this looks like it will change. Should the Seahawks manage to sign Baker, it will be somewhat of an indirect trade as both Seattle and Miami will essentially be swapping out linebackers.

Last year for the Dolphins, Baker started in 12 out of 13 games played, recorded 78 total tackles, snagged two interceptions and even scored a touchdown.
