Seahawks keep adding linebackers

Getty Images

The Seattle Seahawks have used 2017 free agency to load up in one specific area of the roster. They’ve now added three veteran linebackers to the team.

Via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, the Seahawks have signed Terence Garvin. The former West Virginia defender (he played there with former Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin) spent 2016 with Washington. Before that, Garvin had three years with the Steelers.

He joins Arthur Brown and Michael Wilhoite as new Seattle linebackers. Beyond adding depth to the linebacking corps, Garvin will help on special teams. As Condotta notes, the departure of tight end Brandon Williams created a need on the third leg of the football stool.

Garvin, 26, has played in 59 career regular-season games with one start in four NFL seasons.

    Garvin and Wilhoite are both better than Mike Morgan. Seahawks probably don’t bother with a LB in the draft now.

    Wilhoite was rated as the worst starting linebacker according to pff..the dude came in as a converted linebacker from saftey..problem is, he can’t run, consistently gets burned in coverage, and gets blown out of the running game. Good luck if he ever has to start.

    What we need are penetrating defensive tackles that way we can keep more people back in the secondary. If we could rely on a 3-4 man rush and actually “get to” the QB then we would be in a much better place. It was a glaring need in the playoffs along with “not” dominating the running plays on offense. Fix the wagon and let’s Go !!!

    Wilhote won’t make the roster. Schneider over paid

    The one-year dynasty rolls on.

    Have they found a replacement for Richard Sherman? He looked pretty average once Earl Thomas went down. Plus the guy why’s away from tackles more than Deion did.

    I’m not a fan of Sherman off the field, but to say he doesn’t tackle is probably the dumbest thing I’ve heard today. He is one of the most willing tacklers at cb. New England patriot fans are stupid.

    Sherman is a pretty able and willing tackler from what I’ve seen. Check yo facts nhpats.

    Sherman was 154th in total tackles and assists last year. 27 corner backs had more than he did. Not exactly cream of the crop in tackling CB’s

    Notice that Brady wins super bowls?

    “Sherman was 154th in total tackles and assists last year. 27 corner backs had more than he did. Not exactly cream of the crop in tackling CB’s”

    May be a result of the ball not being on his side of the field very often.

    Arthur Brown has the talent to be an elite, pro bowl linebacker. I don’t know what the problem has been. Maybe he can’t learn the defenses or something.
