The Seahawks’ re-signing of Damarious Randall as a cornerback pretty much finished the main portion of Seattle’s free agency and trade additions.
It was interesting that Randle came back instead of Quinton Dunbar. Dunbar signed a one-year, minimum salary deal with the Detroit Lions. That made you wonder if he wasn’t happy the Seahawks were talking to him at the minimum salary or if the Seahawks had concerns about his knee or injury history.
What’s fascinating is the cornerback position will likely be handed over to two former San Francisco 49ers: Ahkello Witherspoon and D.J. Reed.
Witherspoon signed a one-year, $4 million guarantee contract. He is now the Seahawks’ second-highest paid cornerback after the departure of Shaquill Griffin. Tre Flowers is making $2.183 million on his fourth-year escalated contract while Reed makes $920,000. Randall is expected to get a minimum salary deal.
The Seahawks have their money more invested at safety, where they have two Pro Bowlers: Jamal Adams and Quandre Diggs.
