LB Brock Coyle will retire

LB from the Seahawks. Reserve inside and strongside linebacker and special teamer.

This is starting to feel like Christmas.

Let's see...last yr at this time we had lined up Zane, and then there was....unhhh....hmmm....well ,what were the names of all those other FAs?
1st time hearing of this guy. So I hit his wiki

Dude went to Montana and was a a undrafted FA back in 2014

33 career tackles 1 Sack
Pretty solid depth signing and might steal a few minutes here and there

He was a backup to Wagner at MLB. Then when injuries hit the SAM position, he was asked to step in and start at SAM.

The move from middle linebacker to strongside linebacker isn't an easy one. While Seattle's weakside and middle linebackers both play off the line of scrimmage and have some similar responsibilities, the strongside linebacker usually lines up at or near the line, creating different matchups and responsibilities.

"It's definitely a lot different in your reads and your keys, but at the same time, if you really study it, it's not super complicated," Coyle said. "But it was definitely a lot different. I've been behind the ball my whole career, so being there was definitely new for me. But again, with proper preparation, it worked out."

"He did good, he did really good," Wright said. "I'm telling you, just watch his pass rush—he did a good job bending, turning the corner and all that good stuff. He's still learning, he only had one week to prepare, now he has another week, and I believe it's going to be really good for him. He has good instincts, so he'll be fine… It is different. But with his strength, he can set that edge, and with his instincts, he'll see things that get our on the perimeter, so he's going to be good there."

Added middle linebacker Bobby Wagner: "I think Brock did really, really well for a guy who's never played (strongside linebacker) before. He was kind of just thrown into the mix, but everyone knew he could do it because he's so smart and so athletic.
Another knowledge piece, doubt he will start a bellore type that knows the defense

No offense to Coyle. I just don't know who he is.

Kinda reminds me of Dan Skuta.

For some reason, emulating the Seahawks franchise bothers me. But they copied the 49ers template from the 90s so ***k 'em.

Special teams my guess
A position of need who is system-knowledgeable. Winning.

Solid special teamer.

Were we pleased with our depth at LB last year?
I think this is Bellore's replacement..
