The last couple of years have seen the Seattle Seahawks forgo a full-on rebuilding project thanks to the emergence of former backup quarterback Geno Smith as a legitimate starter and Pro Bowler.

But the franchise that won the Super Bowl just 10 years ago isn’t content with going 9-8 in both of the last two seasons.

They’re looking to upgrade their offensive line, and they’re looking at two guards in free agency, per Jeremy Fowler: Laken Tomlinson and Cody Whitehair.

Tomlinson played the last two seasons with the New York Jets, and he made the Pro Bowl in 2021 as a member of the San Francisco 49ers.

He was originally a first-round draft pick in 2015 by the Detroit Lions.

After playing four seasons at Kansas State University, Whitehair was taken in the second round of the 2016 draft by the Chicago Bears, who are the only NFL team he has ever played for to this point.

He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2018.

The Seahawks’ offensive line was considered poor last season, and upgrading it would perhaps help the aging Smith bump his production a bit this coming season.

They brought back offensive tackle George Fant this offseason, but on defense, they lost star linebacker Bobby Wagner to the Washington Commanders, and his departure will certainly leave a void.

The rest of the NFC should be improved during the 2024 season, which means Seattle will need to raise their game in order to return to the playoffs, let alone with a game or two there.
