Seahawks' K.J. Wright: Returning to Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright has agreed to a two-year contract to remain with Seattle, Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Wright presumably explored the open market in search of a lucrative long-term deal, but the Pro-Bowler's return to Seattle -- on a short-term deal -- suggests he didn't find what he was looking for. In any event, Wright now appears set to remain in a similar role he's had the past few seasons with Seattle in which the linebacker topped 100 tackles in every season from 2014 to 2017 before being limited to five games in 2018.

Seahawks' K.J. Wright: Headed for open market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright is expected to test free agency, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Long overshadowed in a star-studded Seattle defense, Wright survived the veteran purge last offseason but then missed 11 games due to knee issues in 2018. He did play in 63 of a possible 64 games over the previous four years, averaging 114 tackles, two forced fumbles and 1.8 sacks per season. Wright helped his cause when he proved his health during the playoffs with eight tackles (seven solo) and an interception in a loss to the Cowboys. Now scheduled for unrestricted free agency ahead of his age-30 season, the veteran linebacker may need to leave Seattle if he wants another multi-year contract with significant guarantees. The Seahawks have ample cap space for the first time in years, but they seem to be more focused on the other side of the ball while implementing a youth movement around Bobby Wagner on defense.

Seahawks' K.J. Wright: Suits up six total games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright made 31 tackles, four pass breakups and an 1 interception in six games this season.

Wright is a strong run-stopper for the Seahawks, and he showed his veteran experience with a timely interception in the fourth quarter of the wild-card playoff game versus the Cowboys. This was the first season that Wright was unable to play 13 or more games, as he was sidelined 11 contests with a knee injury. Wright will be an unrestricted free agent in March, and the Seahawks will want to keep his veteran presence around at the right price in case Shaquem Griffin is unable to take the reins yet. That price could be steep, however, as he posted four straight 100-tackle seasons between 2014 and 2017.

Seahawks' K.J. Wright: Returns to practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Wright was limited in practice on Wednesday as he continues to work his way back from a knee issue. He returned from a five-game absence in Week 16, recording two tackles and a pass defensed across 43 defensive snaps. Barring a major setback, the veteran should be good for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Seahawks' K.J. Wright: Will have limited snap count
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (knee) is slated to play limited snaps Sunday against the Chiefs, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

It's no surprise that Wright will be eased into action after sitting out each of the Seahawks' last five games. Expect Wright to play a rotational role versus the Chiefs before taking back a full-time role once the postseason gets underway.
