Seahawks 2022 free agency tracker and live news updates

Welcome to free agency for the 2022 NFL Season!

Well actually not quite but close enough. The “legal tampering period” starts today (Monday, March 14th) and that’s as good as saying we’ve reached the start of free agency. The new league year kicks off at 1 PM PT on Wednesday, March 16th, at which point signings will be made official as will trades that were reported over the past few weeks... including the one that will send Russell Wilson from the Seattle Seahawks to the Denver Broncos.

The Seahawks don’t have a lot of key free agents this season, but the ones who are out of contract are pretty important. Quandre Diggs has been the team’s standout free safety since he was acquired midway through 2019, and after not getting an extension he hits the market recovering from a serious leg injury. D.J. Reed has gone from nickel option to the #1 cornerback and he too is a free agent. On offense you have starters Duane Brown, Ethan Pocic, and Brandon Shell all along that line. With the trade for Noah Fant, don’t expect them to keep both of Will Dissly or Gerald Everett at tight end.

A Wilson-less Seahawks team is +7000 to win the Super Bowl according to the latest DraftKings Sportsbook odds. Maybe those odds can be heightened with some major signings, but it’s unlikely for as long as Drew Lock is the projected starting quarterback.
