Linebacker K.J. Wright will be back with Seahawks in 2019

Bob Condotta, writing for The Seattle Times

Wright was an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his NFL career and briefly tested the market. In fact, the signing earlier Wednesday of Mychal Kendricks — who helped replace Wright when Wright missed 11 games due to a knee injury in 2018 — had sent to many a sign that maybe he would not return.

Free agency has been busy these first couple of days for sure. As expected, Earl Thomas signed elsewhere, going to Baltimore. I’m not sure if Seattle has made any contact yet, but Tre Flowers is now available to possibly fill that void. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Hawks stay with their young guys, however.

Getting Wright and Kendricks back should solidify their line backing corps for the next couple of years. Seattle also signed pro bowl kicker Jason Myers, giving Seattle their first chance at a solid kicker since Steven Hauschka left town.

It remains to be seen what happens with Frank Clark Jr., who was franchise tagged, and D.J. Fluker, who I imagine the Hawks would try to sign now J.R. Sweezy left for Arizona.
