The Seattle Seahawks have some of the options in free agency that could push them over the top come the 2020 season.

The Seattle Seahawks are already started their free-agency spending after adding tight end Greg Olson a few weeks ago. He’s a nice piece for them at tight end, and with more than $44 million in cap space after the move, it’s not going to finish their offseason.

They have one of the best quarterbacks in the game under center in Russell Wilson, but he has been asked to do a little too much the past couple years. His offensive line is average, they’ve been trying the running back by committee and his wide receivers are mere solid, even if D.K. Metcalf is becoming a star.

This offseason, the Seahawks have a chance to upgrade the roster. They do have some free agents of their own, with 19 players are going into unrestricted free agency.

5. Jason Pierre-Paul

The Seahawks can either spend a fortune to bring former first-overall pick Jadeveon Clowney back or look at other pieces on the market. Jason Pierre-Paul is the best value option for a pass-rusher.

After returning from a broken neck he suffered in a car accident, Pierre-Paul had 8.5 sacks in just over two months of work. In free agency, think about a possible two-year deal worth about $16-18 million with $10 million guaranteed. That, instead of the likely $100 million deal that Clowney was going to command.

Last season, Clowney had three sacks for the whole season. The Seahawks need something different on the pass rush, and Pierre-Paul would be the best option on the market as it is.
