The 2013 season is now over for all but eight NFL teams. All around the league, teams are working to make the tough decisions on which players might not be around next season. The Seahawks are no different, even if they are still playing in the playoffs.
Seattle will enter this offseason with little room to work with under the salary cap and 18 free agents that must be re-signed or replaced. It sets up a situation where the Seahawks will likely have to let go some of their high-profile players in order to avoid creating major holes in the roster at other positions.
With that in mind, here are five players on the roster bubble for the 2014 season.
To make this list, a player must be currently under contract for 2014 and must have played a significant role this season. That means that players whom the team could just let walk in free agency, like guard Paul McQuistan, aren't eligible. It also means that easily replaceable roster-filling players, like wide receiver Bryan Walters, also aren't included.
