See where Seahawks rank in NFC after 1st wave of free agency
The Seattle Seahawks were fairly active this offseason during the first wave of free agency, most notably parting ways with a number of players on the defensive side of the ball as well as adding some new faces to the mix.
Seattle signed defensive linemen Dre’Mont Jones and Jarran Reed as well as linebacker Devin Bush and safety Julian Love. (The Seahawks also agreed to terms with All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner over the weekend, although that deal wasn’t figured into the rankings below.)
Jeff Kerr over at CBS Sports recently ranked all the teams in the NFC based on how each club fared through the first wave of free agency and the Seahawks came in at No. 8.

“The run defense also appears to have improved with the additions of Reed and Love, yet there appears to be a ceiling with this Seattle team,” Kerr writes. “The 2023 draft — along with the improvements of the 2022 draft class — will play a major role if the Seahawks can make a return trip to the playoffs and compete with the top teams in the conference.”
The Eagles, Cowboys and 49ers, in that order, topped Kerr’s list of the NFC’s best so far.
