The Seahawks have been unsuccessful in their pursuit to re-sign defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and are now turning their sights onto two other available players who could assist with Seattle’s pass-rush efforts.
“While the Seahawks appear to have moved on from Jadeveon Clowney, who wants more than they’re willing to pay, the team has interest in two veteran free agent pass rushers: LB Clay Matthews and DE Everson Griffen,” NFL Network’s Mike Silver tweeted Thursday morning. “A deal could happen soon.”
It is interesting to note that both players, while now seasoned NFL veterans, spent their college days under the tutelage of coach Pete Carroll at USC.
Carroll and the Seahawks have made it more than clear the team will never stop looking to improve the defensive line and players who are able to successfully rush the passer will always be coveted on the roster.
