It looks increasingly like Jadeveon Clowney’s 2019 season will be his only year in Seattle. While his prospective departure will hurt Seattle, the Seahawks have the cash to fill the void on defense and weaken their division rivals in the process.
Fowler can fill the same role off the edge and his speed to the ball makes him an outstanding fit for a defense built around fast and instinctive players.
Ward is of the same mold. The Seahawks have thrown a large amount of draft capital at the safety position, however, the problem of trying to fit the multi-faceted and heavy-hitting Ward into the secondary is a good one to have.
Shelby Harris has shown himself to be a force from the nose tackle position in Denver. A switch to Seattle would mean a move to a 4-3, but he is more than capable of successfully making that transition and taking some of the interior pass rush load off Jarran Reed.
The Seahawks will have to make sure they re-sign Reed before thinking about added depth up front.
However, after coming inches away from winning the NFC West in 2019, they are only a few moves away from genuine Super Bowl contention in 2020.
