Linebacker K.J. Wright will be back with Seahawks in 2019

Linebacker K.J. Wright will return to the Seahawks in 2019, a source close to the situation confirmed to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times late Wednesday night.

Wright was an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his NFL career and briefly tested the market. In fact, the signing earlier Wednesday of Mychal Kendricks — who helped replace Wright when Wright missed 11 games due to a knee injury in 2018 — had sent to many a sign that maybe he would not return.

But a source said Wednesday that Wright and the team were deep in negotiations and that Wright will come back to the Seahawks in 2019. Immediate details of the contract were not available.

Wright was a fourth-round pick of the Seahawks in 2011 and since 2013 has been the team’s weakside linebacker, working alongside middle linebacker Bobby Wagner to give Seattle one of the best inside linebacking tandems in the NFL.
