The Seattle Seahawks announced on Friday that they are re-signing defensive back Damarious Randall. However, they will be moving Randall back to his original position of cornerback. Randall started his career as a cornerback after being drafted 30th overall by the Green Bay Packers in 2015, but after three years in green and gold, Randall was traded to Cleveland for quarterback DeShone Kizer where he would switch to safety.
Randall played in 10 games last season for Seattle after joining their practice squad during the season, and while all of his defensive snaps were as a safety, he spent most of his time on special teams. Now Randall will change positions for the third time in his career, after being drafted out of Arizona State as a safety and then being moved to corner, then safety again.
Seattle now has another option at corner and is certainly not done adding there yet whether through the draft or free agency. Just as the Seahawks did with Tre Flowers coming out of college, they now have another safety turned corner (or in Randall’s case, corner turned safety turned corner again). The Seahawks’ cornerback depth chart at present consists of Randall, Flowers, Ahkello Witherspoon, Jordan Miller, Gavin Heslop, Ugo Amadi, and DJ Reed.
