Linebacker K.J. Wright left the Seahawks last year after 10 seasons. He spent one year with the Raiders and now wants to go back to Seattle.

“I just want to go back home,” Wright told Trey Wingo on his Half-Forgotten History show. “I think it’s that simple. Seattle knows that I want to come back. They know how much they mean to me.”

Do the Seahawks want him back?

There are no indications they do, and if they don’t, Wright hinted retirement could be in his future.

“Last year, I left. I went to Vegas by myself,” Wright said. “My family didn’t come with me. I’m not doing that again. I don’t think I’m going to move my family anywhere across the country. If it’s not Seattle again, I’ll be happy. I’ll be content.”

Wright, 32, started eight games and appeared in the other nine last season for the Raiders. He totaled 51 tackles.

Wright has five 100-tackle seasons but the last time was 2019.

  1. Seahawks fans miss you KJ!!! You will always be vastly underrated, but every real fan knows how dominant you were for a decade for us!!! It does seem like the hawks want to see the young guys before their rookie deals are up though which isn’t unfair.

  2. Would LOVE to see him return. There is no doubt he’d be a good addition to a LB room that no longer has Bobby Wagner. With Brooks, KJ and Barton leading they’d have a solid group with good depth, especially when BBK returns.

  3. Would love him to come back to mentor and help the team with his leadership. It needs to be at a reduced, team friendly but fair salary, to work. He is a Seahawk & I hope he can finish his career here by playing another season. Respect.

  4. This man learned the hard way that the grass isn’t greener on the other side.
