Seattle has simply three restricted free brokers this offseason, and people are:
- Poona Ford,
- Shaquem Griffin and
- Jordan Simmons.
Of these three, it seems probably that Ford would be the just one who acquired a young supply, as the opposite two have been unrestricted free brokers in a position to signal with any crew in some unspecified time in the future in the course of the previous yr. Simmons was unsigned as a non-tendered unique rights free agent final spring as a result of damage considerations which have restricted his time on the sector not simply within the NFL, however in school as properly, earlier than coming again to the Hawks on a minimal wage deal. Griffin, in the meantime, was waived by the crew on the finish of coaching camp after which signed to the observe squad, the place he spent the early a part of the 2020 season.
So, whereas the Seahawks entrance workplace technically has RFA selections to make on three gamers, it appears probably that Ford would be the just one to obtain a young supply from the crew.
