Each Friday we will review the week’s biggest Seahawks news
FIVE ROOKIE FREE AGENTS SIGNED
Five undrafted free agents put pen to paper this week and became Seahawks.
Former Husky wider receiver Aaron Fuller and Cougar quarterback Anthony Gordon are two of the five players who signed. The other three were Mississippi State tackle Tommy Cham[in, Albany defensive end Eli Mencer and Texas A&M cornerback Debione Renfro.
KJ WRIGHT HAS OFF SEASON SURGERY
On Thursday General Manager John Schneider was a guest on Sports Radio 950 KJR’s Softy and Dick Show. Schneider announced that Linebacker K.J. Wright had offseason and his return from the surgery was uncertain.
“”K.J. just had surgery, he’s rehabbing from his surgery, I’m not sure the timeline of when he’s going to be back,” Schneider said. “Hopefully he makes it back on time, we’ll see how it goes. This is just a weird offseason for everybody, but especially for guys who had offseason surgery.”
Schneider’s revelation gives context to why the team drafted LB Jordyn Brooks in the first round last week. While he did not say Brooks would start if Wright is not ready, Schneider believes Brooks will get on the field.
“The guy’s been very, very productive and really intense, he embodies what our organization is all about with a chip on his shoulder and just being a guy who really wants to be the best at his craft. He’s a guy who, once he’s here, will really remind you of Bobby and K.J…. We’ll figure it out, if K.J. plays weakside or strongside, however (coaches) want to do it, they’ll figure it out, but everybody was really, really excited to be able to put this guy on our football team.”
