K.J. Wright 'not closing the door' on possible return to Seahawks: 'There is a chance'

Free-agent linebacker K.J. Wright remains one of the interesting names without a team. The longtime Seahawks tackling maven joined SiriusXM NFL Radio and was asked if a return to Seattle is still in the cards this late in the process, Kevin Patra of reports.

"Yes, there is a chance," Wright said responded. "There is a chance, and I'm not closing the door on Seattle. Going into free agency, I thought it'd be a no-brainer, but they're going to wait until training camp, so we'll see."

Way back in May, Pete Carroll noted that there was a chance of a reunion with Wright, but the club seemed willing to wait until at least training camp to see if they had a younger, cheaper option. The Seahawks have 2020 first-rounder Jordyn Brooks set to take on an expanded role as the weakside LB alongside Bobby Wagner. Seattle's plan to employ more defensive-back heavy sets negates the need for a deep LB corps, putting a reunion with Wright in question.

"No matter what happens, my career in Seattle was just unforgettable," Wright said. "Ten years -- had a lot of fun, got a Super Bowl, got a Pro Bowl, Seahawks Man of The Year. I did a lot of good stuff in that jersey. And so, hopefully, one day, they put me up in the Ring of Honor. We'll see.
