Seahawks’ D-line could use more than a pass rusher

On Tuesday, Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby discussed the idea of the Seahawks adding a new weapon to their passing game in the form of an athletic tight end or bigger wide receiver.
That was something Eric Williams of The News Tribune included in his list of the team’s five biggest areas of need.
Another was a big-bodied run stuffer to help a defense that struggled more against the run than its regular-season ranking would suggest. The Seahawks finished 10th in run defense, allowing just over 103 yards per game. That total doesn’t take into account their playoff loss to the Falcons when Seattle allowed 167 yards on the ground. An inability to stop the run was a factor in earlier losses to San Francisco and Miami.
In the video below, Stelton and Grosby discuss a few players on the Seahawks’ roster who could help in that department, including two-year starter and pending free agent Alan Branch.
