The Seattle Seahawks can’t afford to make any major mistakes during 2019 NFL free agency. Avoiding these big-name players would be like dodging a bullet.

The Seattle Seahawks are in a very interesting position heading into 2019 NFL free agency. With a surprisingly talented roster and plenty of cap space to work with, it’s not out of the realm of possibility for this franchise to take a sizable step forward in the coming months.

If that’s going to happen, though, they need to make sure they avoid any costly mistakes when the market opens on March 13. That means spending wisely, not overpaying for average talent and steering clear of the big-name free agents draped in red flags. But who are the players who fit into the latter category?

Well, that’s what we’re here to discuss today. In hopes of providing you with a little more insight as we inch closer to the start of the 2019 league year, I’ve put together a list of top free agents who absolutely should not be on the Seahawks’ radar this offseason.

With nearly $51 million in spending power at this moment (via Spotrac.com), John Schneider must make smart decisions. Throwing a heaping pile of money at a risky target could be the difference between another playoff berth and a slow return to irrelevance. That possibility is partly why none of these players should be calling the Emerald City home by this time next month.

You may like a player or two on this list, but I can assure you the Seahawks would be best to avoid each and every one when 2019 NFL free agency gets under way.
