We’re a week away from December and the Seahawks are still trying to find ways to boost their pass rush.
According to a report by Field Yates at ESPN, Seattle put in a claim for former Rams linebacker Justin Hollins. However, the Packers had priority in the waiver order so he went to them.
A follow-up on two recently waived Rams:
RB Darrell Henderson was claimed only by the Jaguars.
LB Justin Hollins was claimed by both the Packers and Seahawks, with Green Bay having priority.

Hollins (6-foot-5, 248 pounds) played his college football at Oregon, then was taken in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL draft by the Broncos. He lasted just one season in Denver before getting waived and picked up by the Rams.
All together, Hollins has appeared in 49 games, totaling seven sacks, 11 quarterback hits and 97 combined tackles.
The Seahawks currently rank No. 15 in the league with 27 sacks. They’re No. 25 in pass rush win rate and PFF has them ranked No. 27 in pass rush grade. The problem is only Uchenna Nwosu has been able to produce consistent pressure this season. Expect Pete Carroll and John Schneider to continue trying to find a solution.
