Father time may have more to say about the productivity of the Seahawks defensive line. The youngest starters were 29-year old Cliff Avril and Ahtyba Rubin.

Which free agents should the Seattle Seahawks retain?

All good things must come to an end, and for the Seattle Seahawks that statement held true after their 31-24 defeat at the hands of the Carolina Panthers last Sunday. A year that began with multiple off-the-field distractions (Russell Wilson’s contract, Michael Bennett’s potential holdout, and of course, Kam Chancellor’s two game absence) never quite got back on track, and...
