(1090 The Fan) — By no means should you stop basking in the glory the Seahawks created by winning Super Bowl XLVIII. Really though, it has only been eight days.
However, it’s never too early to start thinking about next season’s road to another championship.
Brain Kalchik of Rant Sports has put together a list of five underrated free agents Seattle should target ahead of the 2014 season. “Underrated” being a key component to this list because of head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider’s uncanny ability to find gems where most NFL scouts would not — and for a great value.
Kalchick says the salary cap is favorable again for the Seahawks as only Percy Harvin is scheduled to make more than $10 million in 2014. In fact, Seattle is $12.9 million under the salary cap, giving the team options to keep their players and also to sign some much-needed free agents.
Enter free agent Charles Tillman.
Because Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond will likely no longer be on next year’s team due to suspensions or departures through free agency, Kalchick thinks the Seahawks could swoop in and add a veteran who can still make big plays. He says Tillman’s play will fit right in to the “Legion of Boom” because of his knack for forcing turnovers.
