Landing spot #2: Seattle Seahawks
Ever since the Legion of Boom started to dismantle in 2017, Seattle’s pass defense has not been the same. The Seahawks’ defense ranked 27th in pass yards given up last season with a total of 4,223.
Slay isn’t the absolute best fit for Seattle’s defense, but former Detroit Lion, Quandre Diggs, wasn’t the best fit either, yet he went on to have one of his better seasons.
Seattle is also a team with a lot of cap room, meaning that they won’t be shy when focusing on a player they want in a trade.
If the Seahawks can get the Pro Bowl corner, their secondary would get a huge boost.
They would have Slay and Shaquil Griffin on the edge, plus Diggs and Bradley McDougald at the safety positions.
Now all of the sudden, a secondary that has been in a landslide as of late, has some life to them.
We’ve seen that Seattle is willing to trade draft picks for veterans. And again, they have a good amount of cap space left. Don’t be surprised if Slay ends up traveling to the west coast this offseason.
