Aside from trading for Sam Howell and adding a few fillers to add depth to the roster, the Seattle Seahawks have been fairly dormant in NFL free agency. Of course, the 2024 NFL Draft will provide more opportunities to add to the roster, thanks to having seven selections and three in the first 102 picks. Yet, there are still a few free agents who may be able to help the Seahawks address key needs.

Last Friday, Seahawks GM John Schneider admitted that the offensive line remains one of, if not the most obvious team need for Seattle to address, either in free agency or the draft.

“We’re going to be bringing a couple of veteran offensive linemen through in this second phase of free agency, and then comparing that what the draft looks like. . . . That is a need on our team right now, I think it’s fairly obvious.”

Seattle Seahawks linked to Laken Tomlinson and Cody Whitehair

Well, on Monday, we learned that the Seahawks are already trying to fill these needs. According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the Seahawks have shown interest in signing guard Laken Tomlinson. Seattle has also internally discussed bringing in guard/center Cody Whitehair for a free agent visit too.

Both are veterans who have been Pro Bowl players in the past. Each is over the age of 30, but they would bring much-needed experience to a Seahawks offensive line that is currently in flux. Tomlinson was most recently with the New York Jets, and Whitehair was with the Chicago Bears. Both teams don’t exactly have strong offensive lines in place, but that doesn’t mean the players couldn’t still help the Seahawks in some capacity.
