Seahawks 2021 Free Agency: Players Re-Signed or Leaving, New Arrivals

Despite all the moves you’ve likely heard about in the NFL (Jared Goff-Matthew Stafford traded for each other, Carson Wentz to Indy, etc.), none of the moves could become official until today (Wednesday, March 17) at 1 p.m. PT.

Someone didn’t tell the Seattle Seahawks that they could make moves because so far, the Seahawks have let more guys walk than they have signed.

The Seahawks have a ton of free agents. According to, here is the full list of players whose contracts ended on Wednesday.

  • Nick Bellore (FB)
  • Chris Carson (RB)
  • Phillip Dorsett (WR) – Signed w/Jaguars; never played a down with Seattle
  • Quinton Dunbar (CB)
  • Carlos Dunlap (DE) – Released
  • Kyle Fuller (C) – Tendered
  • Josh Gordon (WR) – Released; playing in Fan Controlled Football League
  • Shaquem Griffin (LB) – Expected to sign w/Jaguars
  • Shaquill Griffin (CB) – Signed w/Jaguars
  • Delano Hill (S)
  • Jacob Hollister (TE)
  • Carlos Hyde (RB) – Signed w/Jaguars
  • Bruce Irvin (DE)
  • Mike Iupati (G) – Retired
  • Brandon Jackson (DE)
  • Benson Mayowa (DE)
  • Brian Mone (DT) – Tendered
  • Damontre Moore (DE)
  • David Moore (WR)
  • Ryan Neal (CB) – Tendered
  • Cedric Ogbuehi (OT)
  • Ethan Pocic (G)
  • Damarious Randall (FS)
  • Jordan Simmons (G)
  • Geno Smith (QB)
  • Jayson Stanley (CB)
  • Linden Stephens (S)
  • Neiko Thorpe (CB)
  • Chance Warmack (G) – Released in February
  • Chad Wheeler (T) – Waived, legal issues
  • Ahkello Witherspoon – Re-Signed (see below)
  • K.J. Wright (OLB)

You’ll notice the word “tendered” next to a couple players above. The Seahawks placed exclusive rights free agent (ERFA) tenders on Kyle Fuller, Brian Mone and Ryan Neal.

Exclusive right free agents cannot negotiate with any other team, so essentially Seattle will not lose out on those three players.

Not included on the list above is Alex Collins who jumped back and forth from the Seahawks practice squad and the active roster during last season. He re-signed with Seattle on Feb. 24.

So far, the Seahawks have re-signed Ahkello Witherspoon to a one-year, $4 million deal, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Also, Seattle officially brought back Poona Ford on a two-year (incentive-laden) deal worth up $14 million, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

The Seahawks have already lost three players, with a fourth expected, all to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Phillip Dorsett (terms undisclosed), Shaquill Griffin (3-years, $44.5 million) and Carlos Hyde (2-years, $6 million) were all included on the Jaguars announcement of free agent signings.

Shaquem Griffin (Shaquill’s twin) is expected to sign with the Jaguars as well, but the team did not include him in their list of free agent additions.

We’ll try to keep you updated as Seattle makes moves and/or loses more players in free agency.
