The Complete Guide to Seattle Seahawks Free Agency

Welcome to the wild and wacky world of free agency. Will the Seattle Seahawks be active or will they let other teams throw out the big contracts to the top talent?

The tough part of free agency is that there is proven talent on the market, but the big names are never cheap. Contrast that with the draft, where the money paid to rookies is much more tolerable, but the probability of success is much less certain.

If the Seahawks follow their pattern of the last couple of years, they will not necessarily be overly active in the free-agent market. Pete Carroll and John Schneider have worked hard to rebuild this team through the draft. They have had some definitive success, as well as some picks that have not panned out as hoped. There is certainly the possibility that they will stick with smaller free-agent deals and continue building through the draft.

Then again, Seattle is arguably close to making a serious Super Bowl run. Might Carroll and Schneider commit more money to proven veterans in order to balance out the young talent? Time will tell.

Here is a guide to the free-agent market and how the Seattle Seahawks may be involved.
