The Seattle Seahawks have high hopes for their open roster spot.

With defensive end Cliff Avril down for a minimum eight gmaes, the Seahawks are looking to fill that spot with another highly-decorated pass rusher. According to the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta, the team could bring in seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro Dwight Freeney.

Freeney remains a free agent after spending last season with the Atlanta Falcons where he tallied three sacks.
