2015 NFL free agency: Seahawks who could come to Jacksonville

New, comments

Defenders like Chris Clemons, Red Bryant, and Will Blackmon prove that Jacksonville likes to look towards Seattle when free agency starts. Could the Seahawks be losing another player to the Jaguars in 2015?

The Jacksonville Jaguars have poached several members of the Seattle Seahawks since then-Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley took over as head coach of the Jaguars two years ago.

There are quite a few players who could enter free agency for the Seahawks. Who are they? Here's the full list:

James Carpenter 25 G $2,431,364 UFA
Kevin Williams 34 DT $2,078,125 UFA

I think there could be legitimate interest by the Jaguars in cornerback Byron Maxwell, but I think there's even greater interest by the Seahawks to keep him. Depth at cornerback is huge, and I don't think Seattle lets him get away.

Could wide receiver Jermaine Kearse get some looks? Probably not. Yes, he plays in a limited role, but he's not better than Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee.
