Some of the talk this offseason has involved how the Seattle Seahawks might improve at their third wide receiver position.
The most recent report suggests interest in New England Patriots receiver Phillip Dorsett
Just got off the phone with impending FA WR Phillip Dorsett. He told me, teams showing preliminary interest in him include the #NYJ, #SEA, #LAC, #SF, #LVR. He said, "I just want to come in and have a great opportunity to play and showcase how I can really flourish as a player."— ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) March 16, 2020
That puts Seattle in the five team running, though the San Francisco 49ers still have quite a bit of cap to figure out before they go on any signing spree.
Dorsett had a mild improvement last year, going for 397 yards on 29 receptions. He won’t command a huge contract, and would be in competition for one of the receivers as opposed to an automatic lock for third.
However, some have noted early on that this might be a better fit in Seattle than some of the other teams expressing interest:
Dorsett would provide Seattle with a speedy third (or fourth) option, depending on what team does in the draft. He's had modest production at best since coming into the league as a first round pick with Indy, but again... very athletic, caught five TDs a year ago.— Corbin Smith (@CorbinSmithNFL) March 16, 2020
With how stacked the upcoming draft is at receiver, the Hawks might be looking to make a low-cost move in free agency and then potentially addressing the position in the draft as well next month.
