Super Bowl 48 results: Champion Seahawks could supply Jaguars with free agent targets

New, comments

The Seahawks have a lot of impending free agents and not much cap room to work with, so the Jaguars could be supplied with some options in free agency.

The Seattle Seahawks won on Sunday with the second-youngest roster in Super Bowl history, and while that suggests that they have a dynasty in the making, they'll have their hands full keeping all their playmakers around in 2014. If they can't, the Jacksonville Jaguars could be waiting to snag any Seahawks players that reach the open free agency market.

With an estimated $4.5 million in cap room for the 2014 season via Over The Cap, the Seahawks are in position to make sure they don't lose everyone. But they certainly aren't in great shape to keep the entire band together either.

Here is the full list of impending unrestricted free agents for the Super Bowl champions:

Player Pos Age
Steven Hauschka K 29
Michael Bennett DE 28
Tony McDaniel DT 29
Golden Tate WR 26
Clinton McDonald DT 27
Walter Thurmond CB 27
Tarvaris Jackson QB 31
Brandon Browner CB 30
O'Brien Schofield DE/OLB 27
Michael Robinson FB 31
Anthony McCoy TE 26
Breno Giacomini OT 28
Chris Maragos S 27
Kellen Davis TE 28
Paul McQuistan G 31

In addition to restricted free agents Doug Baldwin and Jeron Johnson, the Seahawks won't be able to pay everyone. That leaves the Jaguars with a few interesting prospects that could fall into their laps. It wouldn't be the first connection between the two teams either, as seven players were signed by the Jaguars in 2013 after they were cut, waived or allowed to reach free agency by the Seahawks.

Worth keep an eye on, in particular, are defensive lineman Michael Bennett, Tony McDaniel, Clinton McDonald and O'Brien Schofield. With plenty of cap room to work with and no pass rush to be seen, the addition of a player like Bennett isn't at all unrealistic for the Jaguars.
