Carroll: Seahawks, Wright have discussed return


RENTON, Wash. — After spending final season with the Las Vegas Raiders, free-agent linebacker K.J. Wright desires to return to the Seattle Seahawks.

“I wish to return residence,” Wright told Trey Wingo on the “Half-Forgotten Historical past” podcast final week. “I believe it is that easy. Seattle is aware of that I wish to come again. They understand how a lot they imply to me.”

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was requested about Wright’s feedback Sunday after the group concluded its three-day rookie minicamp. His response did not give the impression {that a} reunion is probably going, because the Seahawks seem set to go along with current draft picks Jordyn Brooks (2020 first-rounder) and Cody Barton (2019 third-rounder) as their beginning inside linebackers.

“I really like Ok.J.,” Carroll stated. “I’ve already talked to him about stuff for the long run and all that. I did hear that he talked about enjoying, and we have already talked about that.”

Wright, 32, spent his first 10 seasons with the Seahawks, serving to them win Tremendous Bowl XLVIII and attain Tremendous Bowl XLIX the next 12 months. He made the Professional Bowl after the 2016 season and racked up the third-most tackles in franchise historical past, behind Eugene Robinson and all-time chief Bobby Wagner.

The Seahawks launched Wagner earlier this offseason, one 12 months after not re-signing Wright when his contract expired. Wright then signed a one-year, $3.5 million with the Raiders and recorded 51 tackles in 17 video games (eight begins).

“Final 12 months I left, went to Vegas on my own,” he advised Wingo. “My household did not include me. I am not doing that once more. I do not suppose I will transfer my household anyplace else throughout the nation, so if it is not Seattle, then I will be content material.”
