Seattle Seahawks Four-Year Safety Becomes Free Agent

Seattle Seahawks safety Ryan Neal has become a free agent after the team withdrew their restricted free agent tender.

Despite spending the last four seasons with Seattle, including 66 tackles, eight passes defended, and one interception in 14 games (10 starts) with the team last season, the reasons behind the Seahawks' decision to move on from Neal remain unknown.

The 27-year-old is expected to draw interest from several teams, particularly those in need of safety depth ahead of the upcoming season.

Neal spent the last four seasons with the Seahawks, and his departure marks the end of his time with the team.

For his career, Neal has amassed 160 total tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles, three interceptions, and 16 passes defended across 46 games played. Photo Credit: Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports
