The allegation rendered on the head coach Mike Macdonald by the team members has been proving wrong today…..

The Seattle Seahawks made sweeping changes to their roster ahead of the 2024 NFL season. In order to get cap-compliant, Seahawks general manager John Schneider abruptly cut tight end Will Dissly, along with starting safety duo Jamal Adams and Quandre Diggs.

The Seahawks saved $6.97 million in cap space by releasing Dissly, who went on to sign with the Los Angeles Chargers. By releasing both Adams and Diggs, two of the Top 10 highest-paid safeties in the NFL, Seattle saved $27.5 million in cash. Both Pro Bowlers remain free agents.

“We haven’t shut the door on any of them to come back,” Schneider told Seattle Sports 710 after the wave of cuts. “But when you do these contracts and you try to create cap room, there’s ramifications. It’s like a credit card situation. Eventually you’ve gotta pay the bills, and if you want to keep moving forward, you have to address that.”

However, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero announced that the Seahawks were signing safety K’Von Wallace on Tuesday, March 19. Coming on the heels of Seattle signing former Jacksonville Jaguars safety Rayshawn Jenkins to a two year, $12 million contract, any chance of Diggs of Adams returning seems highly unlikely.

 

The Seattle Times wrote, “Wallace will join a Seattle safety corps that also includes returner Julian Love and veteran free agent Rayshawn Jenkins, most recently of Jacksonville, who signed last week. Between those three, Seattle now has three safeties on its roster who started a combined 41 games last season.

“And that likely means that any door that may have still been open for the return of either Diggs or Adams may now be closed.”
