Bryce Huff of the Eagles reveals that the Seahawks made an attempt to acquire him during free agency.

With the exception of a few minor transactions, the Seattle Seahawks have once again maintained a relatively low profile in free agency, though not without making efforts.

According to standout edge rusher Bryce Huff, who departed the New York Jets this offseason to ink a lucrative three-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, the Seahawks were among several teams vying for his services.

Huff stated, “The Jets, of course. The Giants were in consideration. Commanders were in consideration. Vikings, Seahawks. There were quite a few teams,” as reported by SI.com’s Eagles Today.

Turning 26 next month, Huff entered the league as an undrafted free agent from Memphis in 2020. He had established himself as a dependable rotational player for the Jets, but this season, he soared to new heights with a career-best 10 sacks.

However, his playing time was limited to just 42 percent of the Jets’ defensive snaps due to concerns about his effectiveness against the run. Considering the Seahawks struggled as one of the league’s weakest run defenses last season, acquiring another player with similar vulnerabilities might not have been the most prudent move.
